Heidi Guidmore, from Nashua, is a member of the Dancing Ensemble in The Music Man and this is her first production ever! She auditioned for Music Man with the love and support of her boyfriend Cam Morin, who is also in the Dancing Ensemble. When Heidi was 6 years old, she went to see her first musical with her grandmother, and, you guessed it: they saw The Music Man! The Music Man has always held a special place in Heidi’s heart, and she is performing in memory of her Grandmother. Heidi has always wanted to do a theatrical production, and being cast in The Music Man is a dream come true! Heidi was ecstatic to be cast - after auditioning on her twenty-first Birthday and finding out that night she was cast, “it made my birthday that much more special!”
Heidi’s love for theatre and musicals started at a very young age, performing at Rosita Lee Dance Center and Showcase Performing Arts Center, where she danced and nationally competed for 18 years. Heidi’s earliest theatre/dance memory was when she was in her first ballet performance to a dance called Snow Babies. “ I was in this white feathered costume and my mom had me wear one of my dad’s giant button up shirts so I wouldn’t get my bright red lipstick all over it.”
Heidi feels honored and blessed to be surrounded by such a wonderful cast and crew. “I get the joy of performing on-stage and the thrill of pure excitement from doing what I love - the big musical numbers are like magic! I am so excited to be a part of the Music Man production! “
Heidi is currently a junior at Rivier University, majoring in Early Childhood Education/Special Education and Human Development, and she will be graduating in 2015.
