I'm Shannon and I have been doing shows at the NEYT for 6 years. I have been a part of 15 plays so far and I hope to be a part of many more. My favorite part so far has been Kate Keller in The Miracle Worker. We all got very close during that show, and I really enjoyed learning about the story and the characters involved. I just recently became a mentor, so that I can be as involved as I can. I know that the theatre is a wonderful place. I knew that I was part of something good from my very first rehearsal. I didn't know how good until a few years ago when I went through some very hard times. I stopped doing shows at the theatre so that I could relax and take it easy. I soon realized that I needed the theatre. It helped me because I knew that I always had friends there no matter how alone I felt.
