Interview with Diana Hill, Actorsingers

Posted by Evelynn Decker Monday, October 8, 2018 12:50:00 PM

In The Spotlight - Christie Conticchio 

Placard Girl - REEFER MADNESS

"REEFER MADNESS"

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

CHRISTIE CONTICCHIO

PLACARD GIRL

Actorsingers is pleased to present Nashua’s own Christie Conticchio in our IN THE SPOTLIGHT Series.  She will be performing as Placard Girl in REEFER MADNESS.

Christie auditioned for the show because she wanted to work with the talented directorial team.  Also, she wanted to push herself creatively by doing a show outside of her comfort-zone. Christie was very excited as this was her first non-ensemble character role.

Her character's name is Dorothy "Placard Girl" Riley and is a fellow carefree teenager who uses her placards to clearly state scenes' moral lessons. The most challenging part is acting like she believes the placards...

 Christie's Actorsingers background started in 2014 with "Young Frankenstein".  She then did several shows with other neighboring communities.  In 2018, she did a lot of work with Actorsingers performing in Sister Act in May, then musically directed Damn Yankees in July. 

Christie's earliest theatre memory is her senior class play, "Bye Bye Birdie" she played Mrs. Macafee and she remembers how much fun it was to work with Mr. Heinhold. 

With every show her theatre family grows, and she is very blessed for all the wonderfully talented people she’s met. 

When Christie is not working in the theater, she loves spending time with her husband and friends. She also enjoys anything active such as biking, hiking, etc. 

 

Enjoy REEFER MADNESS August 31, September 1-2, 2018 ! Tickets available here !
