Queenie Pie Visits Opera for All Students!

Linden Christ - Manager of Education and Outreach

On Thursday, March 13th, our very own Queen Pie visited five of our schools and spoke with 300 of our Opera for All students!   Karen Marie Richardson is passionate about sharing her experiences with children. All of our OFA students attended the dress rehearsal of Queenie Pie at the Harris Theater, but that was on February 11th, so she began each classroom visit by having the students retell the story.   The students asked wonderful questions throughout the day.

How do you scat?
What inspired you to become an actress?
Do you get nervous?
How long did it take you to memorize Queenie Pie?
How do you feel on stage?
What was your audition like for Queenie Pie?

The students loved meeting with Karen Marie Richardson and everyone wanted her autograph!   It was a great day for these young students!    All of our Opera for All schools received a signed poster from the cast.
