Atlanta Black Theatre Festival
How did you prepare for both roles?
"It was interesting actually because Deep Greenwood is set in the 1920's, while When The Cats Come is more present day. I really used the power of music and meditation to help me become acclimated moments before I walked on stage. Along with an extensive back story for both characters.
Was this your first time performing on stage?
"Yes! and it was the most invigorating experience. Theatre is a whole different ball game from film and television. It's so in the moment, and having multiple shows you constantly have to keep making new character choices.
The Atlanta Black Theatre Festival takes place October 3 - 6, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Explain your role for each production.
"I play Presley Little in the stage play production Deep Greenwood written and produced by Michaela Walter. Presley is a young entrepreneur that owned a restaurant in Greenwood. He is a comical relief in my opinion. Presley has the ability to find the silver lining in every moment"
"I play Julian in XO: The Series written and produced by Gabrielle Briana. Julian is an artist, and what intrigues me most about Julian is his connection to his spirituality. He's an intellectual but loves to engage in conversation to explore the minds of others"
Deep Greenwood the stage play is set to open April 2018 in Atlanta, GA.
XO: The Series is set to start production at the end of March 2018.
