Lani Corson as Sister Mary Robert in SISTER ACT!
I grew up in a small town in Maine. When I was 8 we moved to an even smaller town, to a farm, where I rode horses and picked blueberries. I remember having to drive 30 minutes to the nearest grocery store. In that same town, as the grocery store was what influenced me to become an Actor. There was this great community theatre that had a theatre camp every summer. My first summer we did The Wizard of Oz. I was, of course, a munchkin, among other things, and that was pretty much the beginning of the end. I did many other shows there throughout the years and the Artistic Director was a big supporter of mine and helped me prepare for my college auditions.
I was super excited when I first heard they were making Sister Act a musical! I've been wanting to do it for years - thanks WBT!! I've always loved the movie; I think some movies lend themselves to be made into a musical and this is no exception. This is actually a role I've been wanting to do for years!
One of my favorite shows is Les Miserables. It was the show that really solidified my love of musical theatre and I always wanted to play Eponine. I have understudied it once and I think I'm actually transitioning to where I would rather play Fantine. Another role I would love to do is the title role in Violet.
When I'm not on stage in a theatre I am usually training, teaching or performing as an aerialist. I've been training in aerial and ground acrobatics for about 9 years and am one of the owners of the theatrical circus company, 2 Ring Circus (www.2ringcircus.com).
I like listening to music, I'm on a Dresden Dolls kick right now!
