9 Questions with

Sam Eichacker,

asked by Sara Williams.

Sara Williams

1) How long have you been doing theatre?

 6 yrs.

 

2. What's your favorite thing about it?

All of the new friends that I meet and the environment, it feels like I am in one big family, all actors, so if you make a mistake, everyone understands because it's acting and everyone gets put in that situation at one point or an other.  I also like to see how the show comes and fits together throughout the process.

 

3) When you're not involved in a theatre production, what kind
of hobbies do you enjoy?

I like playing outside, and playing a lot of sports.  I also like writing stories and making random stuff out of duct tape.

 

4) If you could play a role in any movie of your choice, what movie
and role would it be?

I would play Smalls from The Sandlot.  I like this role because of the way the character changes so much throughout the movie and faces so many obstacles with the help of all his friends. Plus, it's a baseball movie.

 

5) What's your favorite part of "East Side Story" so far?

I really like the opening number, especially the part where everyone swirls around each other and fits into their position for the first scene.

 

6) When did you first discover Q Artistry?

When I auditioned for the first Q show, Perry Haughter, which was about 4 years ago.

 

7) What's your favorite food?

I really don't have a favorite food, because I like a lot of foods, but if I had to pick, it would probably be a nice fresh grilled cheese dipped in tomato soup.

 

8) If you could be an animal, what would it be and why?

I would be a griffin, because thats like 3 animals in one!

 

9) If there was an East Side Story sequel next year, how would you title it?
