Monica Wemitt Back At The Mac!
That’s right, Monica Wemitt makes her grand return to the Mac-Haydn stage this week for the first time in three years! We caught up with Monica this week to chat about what she’s been up to in the meantime, and what it means to return to our stage.
Q: How excited are you to be back on stage at the Mac-Haydn?
A: Not only is it exciting to be on the stage, but to be able to work in this new configuration is so much fun!
Q: What have you been up to since you were last seen on our stage?
A: Aside from being the Covid Compliance Manager here at the theatre, I pivoted into doing audio books. It’s such a fulfilling job to be able to record, edit and master the tracks I record for these books. I also was the soloist at St. Mary’s in Waterford for period between Thanksgiving and Easter for the past two years.
Q: What was your most memorable role at the Mac?
A: Honestly there are just too many to list, but the ones that come immediately to mind are Miss Hannigan in ANNIE, Frau Blucher in YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN and Carmen in CURTAINS.
Q: Tell us about your role in “The Full Monty”?
A: That would be the role of Jeanette and she is amazing. Not one to pull her punches, a heart of gold, and quite a saucy way of speaking.
Q: What is the most exciting part of being in the cast of “The Full Monty”?
A: To be in such a fun show. The music is great, the script is really well-written and to be performing with this cast is a real honor, and of course to be working with Todd Underwood (Director) and Lizzie McGuire (Choreographer) who give everyone the liberty to create.
