Andre is performing as Jimmy in Miracle on South Division Street. Let’s see what he has to say about the show:
Q: Name Two fun facts about you
A: 1. I have never seen any of the Star Wars Movies, which I’m currently being threatened into watching as soon as this show is over.
I have like 100 recipes on Pinterest that I would like to try out.
Q: What can audiences look forward to in your show, Miracle on South Division St?
A: It’s a really nice show that’s funny, and charming, and gets you to really feel for this family.
A: I have a similar dynamic in my family in that we’re loud and we talk about each other and deliberately push each other’s buttons but it’s all coming from a place of love and genuine affection that we feel for each other, which is something I, and many other families, could relate to. Jimmy is also the peacemaker of the family and when I’m not actively causing trouble, I fit into that role.
Q: What excites you the most about Miracle on South Division St?
A: That I get to share a stage and work across some great actors.
Q: As the Holidays approach, how is/will working show Miracle on South Division St. affect your attitude and excitement towards the holiday season?
A: I think this show has gotten me more into the Christmas Spirit, especially with all the Christmas music that’s playing and spending time on stage with a family that is similar to mine I think also helps with that as well.
Come see Andre Eaton Jr. and the rest of this talented ensemble including Minnie Tee, Alison Brady, and Alyson Rubin in Miracle on South Division St. The show runs December 1-16, 2017 at the Belfry Playhouse at Norcross Presbyterian Church.
