Cinderella Cast Interview with Abi Crigler

Abi Crigler (Portia) will be performing in Cinderella May 4-14!

Q: What is one of your biggest dreams that you wish you could make into a reality? What would you do once this dream became real?

A: I wish I could shapeshift. If I could shapeshift, I could become the very best version of myself without any physical/talent limits, helping me to better succeed in my day to day life. Also, I would be able to shapeshift into an otter which would be amazing.

Q: If you had your own magic carriage to take to the ball, what would it look like?

A: My carriage would look exactly like the Fairy Godmother's from Shrek 2 (sassy stagecoach included), but be made of a lemon Muddy's cupcake, so I would not get hungry in transit.

Q: If you were to throw your own royal ball, who would you invite and why?

A: I would invite so many people. I'm thoroughly convinced Amy Poehler and I would be great pals and that she would be the type to bring some sort of dessert to the ball, so she is a definete yes. Also I would love to talk with her about being a woman in comedy and developing my favorite show Parks and Rec. Next, I would call up Teddy Roosevelt because he was just the sweetest and also super hard core, and I'm pretty sure he can line dance like no one else (HUGE fan of line dancing at this ball btw). I would then of course invite Sutton Foster because she has always been the person I look up to and admire as an actress, and I think I could coax her into rocking some kareoke. I would probably invite Vin Diesal too because I have a reoccuring dream we get married and why not a ball to see where it goes. Also, Grumpy Cat would be invited because he is the best. (Im pretty sure this question only wanted one answer, but I couldnt decide between all these people and I think as a group they really work, so I wrote them all. Im sorry for the level of extra that I am)

Q: What are you looking forward to the most in this production and why?

A: I am looking forward the most to making people smile and laugh while doing goofy, stepsister-esque bits and working with a cast of incredibly talented and beautiful actors and actresses to make a wonderful show.
