Actor Spotlight: SAM!

When Lawrence was writing The Curse of the Tempest Jewel, one of the first character names he came up with was Mickey O'Chuckles. It was the perfect name for this featured actor, who has an absolutely infectious laugh! He loves music (he plays a mean harmonica!), and has a soft spot for animals and mystical creatures. A very experienced actor, he's played numerous roles with us and Special Gifts Theater, and enjoys playing comedic roles...

Meet SAM P!

I am 17 and Twelfth Night marked my 7th show with A.B.L.E. Ensemble. You might recognize me from some of my past roles Bottom in Midsummer Nightโ€™s Dream, The Jabberwock in Adventures in Wonderland, and Mickey Oโ€™Chuckles in The Curse of the Tempest Jewel. If I could disguise myself as anyone or anything, I would be a Wolfman. Three things I enjoy about coming to A.B.L.E.  are singing, dancing, and getting better with my acting. My favorite dance party song is โ€œShake It Offโ€ by Taylor Swift. One thing I have learned from being a part of this ensemble is to have fun onstage!

Three words to describe me are: handsome, blue eyes, and funny. Someday I want to go to London to see the werewolves or on safari to see animals. I know everything about Halloween, and I love werewolves and scary movies. I can dance and I want to be a famous actor. 

From watching Sam participate in ABLE, I have learned to let him be. He has developed so much confidence and great friendships!
