Becca has been in theatre “for a long time… lol.” She has worked “all over the place” and also performs with Zephyr Instrumental (keyboards/synth).

Becca was glad to answer a few questions about the upcoming show:

Q: What shows have you done with us in the past?

A: I’ve worked on every Live Arts show!

Q: Name two fun facts about you:

A: 1. I have competed in the National Gingerbread House competition many times. You can see one of my creations in the Live Arts lobby when you come to the show. 2. I have 3 themed Christmas trees with custom lights at my house.

Q: What can audiences look forward to with Miracle on South Division Street.

A: The show is funny, but also heartwarming, which is perfect for the holidays. This is the second of Tom Dudzik’s shows that I have been part of. The first was a show I stage-managed almost a decade ago called Over The Tavern. His writing is amazing and really good for the whole family. There are also so many unexpected twists that will keep you on your toes from beginning to end.

Q: What can you relate the story in Miracle on South Division Street?

A: The Nowaks are totally my family growing up. Clara reminds me of my grandmother, who was also Polish, like Clara. She can be soft-spoken but has no problems at all speaking her mind. Several of the things she says are hilarious.

Also, watching the siblings interact with each other reminds me of family meetings we had when I was growing up.

Come see this talented ensemble of Minnie Tee,  Alison Brady,  Alyson Rubi, and Andre Eaton in Miracle on South Division St. The show runs December 1-16, 2017 at the Belfry Playhouse at Norcross Presbyterian Church.
