My name is Kedren Spencer and I am playing the role of Anna. Anna is a school girl who lives an extremely sheltered life and as a result, is naïve and blind to the goings on of the real world. She seemingly lives in an alternate reality in her ignorance. She doesn’t ask questions and her parents happily oblige to keep her in the dark about even the simplest facts of growing up. This affects her when something deep and personal happens to her best friend, Martha, and she is then forced to understand. It has been extremely exciting to go through the process of getting to know my character and discovering her personal angst and innocence. In this process of discovery and reflection, I have become even more grateful and appreciative about my own upbringing, and the open communication that I have been blessed to have with my parents.
This show has such an amazing ability to shed a BRIGHT light on issues that have been and continue to be prevalent amongst teens. I am so excited to be a part of this moving and powerful production! It continues to be an amazing ride full of self discovery, working with professional, passionate, and talented people. My journey as an actress is still in its beginnings, but the more I drive myself, become focused, and surround myself with other talented and like-minded people-like my fellow cast members-I know that it is, in fact, only the beginning! I can’t wait to show the rest of the world what I have to offer: “JUST WATCH ME!”
