Itati Lainez (Ursula)

Grade: Senior

Q: What are you most excited about?

A: “I’m a better singer than I am actor for sure, but I’m really looking forward to ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls’ because I get to be a little brat onstage.”

Q: What has been most difficult so far?

A: “Probably the lines. I’ve never had to memorize lines. I’ve had to think of it as a song, just without notes. That is hard.” 

Q: Who is your favorite character in the show?

A: “Ursula. But that might be biased.”

Q: Who do you look up to in theater?

A: “Emerson Harris and Asa O’Farrell. I’ve seen them in ‘Seussical,’ ‘The Triangle Factory Fire Project,’ and ‘Love/Sick.’ And Uzi, he’s so good. I love the way he acts, he’s so sassy with it.”

Q: Do you have any advice for people who might be interested in the theater world?

A: “Just do it, man. No one in theater is going to judge you for trying out because they were all in your position once. #Noregrets.”
