Sarah Bower was interviewed for her role as Nancy in CYT Fredericksburg’s upcoming production of “Oliver,” in an article that ran over at Fredericksburg.com.
According to the article, “[Through Nancy’s character], who started stealing at age 6 and doesn’t know any other way to live, Sarah feels hopelessness and constant fear.”
“The uncertainty of what is going to happen and not having any hope or faith in anything makes that fear even bigger,” Sarah told the paper. “[I want to show the impoverished] they have hope for a better life in Christ.”
The article stated that Sarah will be traveling to Mombasa, Kenya, where she will “serve orphans and other children at the Royal Kids School. The facility is supported by e3Kids International, a Fredericksburg based nonprofit whose mission is to equip, empower, and educate impoverished children. The group sponsors 130 children ages 4-18.”
Managing Director Terry Cook told the paper that the “Oliver” cast has been collecting food for a local food pantry:
“The [students] want to have an impact in our community as well as internationally.”
With the 2012 Academy Awards only a couple days away, the Oscar buzz is hard to ignore.
CYT San Diego alum Michelle Williams received a Best Actress nomination at the 84th Academy Awards for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe, in the film, “My Week with Marilyn.” In the video above she discusses her role as Marilyn and performing in CYT as a child.
The Oscars will take place on February 26, 2012, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, California.
