Cinderella Cast Interview with Oakley Weddle

Oakley Weddle (Prince/Assistant Director) 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: To run my own children's theater company, to impact the lives of children and young artist through educational theater, just like Stage Door has done so well for me.

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

A: My carriage would be a giant panda on wheels. This panda is sitting contently, bamboo in hand. The magic of the carriage would be due to the fact that when you open the side door, you come out the panda's mouth, so he would obviously have to move. And as we pass by the pensants, he would slightly judge them. Look, I'm trying my best with this...

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

A: I would invite Snow White, Mulan, Jasmine, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Elsa, Tiana and all the other Disney princesses. I'm just that kind of Prince.

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

A: Every time I get the opportunity to work/be with Stage Door, I take it and cherish every moment as it is fleeting. I always meet new friends and enrich previous friendships with others. I'm also thrilled to learn from the staff and take on a role that I would have never played otherwise. I thank them for giving me this opportunity and believing in me, and I can't wait to see what comes out of this production, as I know it will all be fantastic.
