“SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN’
IN THE SPOTLIGHT SERIES
APPEARING AS WARDROBE MISTRESS/ENSEMBLE
Nashua native, Pamela Thornhill auditioned for “Singin’ in the Rain” because she loves the show and the directing and producing team – and she wanted to Tap!! She was happy and excited when she found out she was cast in this all-time favorite theatre classic.
Pam appears in various parts throughout the show, but she will be seen as the Wardrobe Mistress to Miss Lina Lamont. She says she got a lot of her inspiration from Actorsingers’ own wardrobe specialists, the late Penny Tamulonis and Raelene Liljeberg, then mixed in her own flair. As for the other character she portrays, she says she is these things in real life – a fan, a theatre patron, a townsperson, etc.
Pam says the most challenging part of bringing her role to life is the need to make it appear real and effortless. That comes with hours and hours of rehearsal!! Pam got her theatrical inspiration from a teacher she had when she was 11 years old and from her wonderful and talented mom, whose love of music, theatre and culture inspires her to this day.
When not involved in theatre, Pam works for a small company in marketing and inside sales (which she loves!) and many other interests that keep her busy and enjoying life.
When Pam was asked what she likes best about being involved in community theatre, her response was: “Where do I begin? I have met some of the most wonderful, bright, caring, loving, fun and talented people, who all support one another and want to bring joy to those in the community and to one another. I learn something new with each show I am part of.”
Pam feels theatre gives you a profound sense of fulfillment and joy in being able to share the gifts of singing, acting and dancing with fellow theater people and most importantly, those who attend theater. It gives you a chance make someone smile and be positive every day. “ It is one of my passions and I am blessed that I am able to be part of it.”
