“I started getting involved in musical theater when I was in middle school. I have always had a passion for it but stopped doing theater when I decided to get my Masters in School Counseling. Now that I have been in the position as a School Counselor for a year at Konawaena, I decided it was time to start auditioning for theater again. I was still unsure if I should audition because I was so nervous but chose to audition anyway. I’m happy I did!” – Ms. White

 

As most of you may or may not know, this year the Aloha Theater showcased a Halloween classic, the Addams Family. Ms. White, a current counselor at Konawaena High School played the role of Wednesday Addams, the daughter of  Gomez and Morticia. “We have been rehearsing for the Addams Family the musical since August. We have four rehearsals during the week from 6-9 and then one rehearsal on the weekends from 2-6.” Says school counselor, Ms. White.

 

When we asked Ms. white what she enjoys about acting she responded with, “I enjoy learning about the character I am playing and then use what I learn in my acting.” Ms. White says that as a counselor she often speaks with students about how they are feeling in a specific situation and utilizes this technique when studying her character as well. “When I’m studying a scene I will analyze how my character would feel in a particular situation. Once I analyze how my character would feel I then try to embody that feeling in my voice, face, and body.” Ms. White says.

 

Ms. White began participating in theater arts from an early age when she used to live in Southern California. Ms. White’s advice to aspiring actors suggests that students get involved in the drama class at Konawaena High or in acting classes at the Aloha Theater in Kainaliu. “It can be really scary to start acting, but going out of your comfort zone and trying it is all worth it.” Says Ms. white.

 

Buy your tickets for the Addams Family performance on Friday and Saturday 7:30 PM and Sunday afternoons at 2:30 PM from October 12-28th at the Aloha Theater. You can see our very own beloved Konawaena counselor, Ms. Cambry White who plays Wednesday Addams. Tickets are $22 for adults, seniors/young adults for $20, and children for $10 at www.apachawaii.org.
