Aislin Freya Pax Thompson Makes Her NYC Debut!

July 6, 2010 at 9:43 am Leave a comment

Academy member Aislin Freya Pax Thompson just returned from an exciting adventure in NYC where she worked on the Fame Jr. Choreography DVD for MTI’s Broadway Jr. division. Her rigorous schedule included six days of six to eight hour rehearsals and we are proud of her for rising to the challenge. After all, she’s just nine and was the youngest of 21 students (mostly teenagers) cast out of thousands of musical theatre students from all over the country! An avid performer, she flew back from NYC just in time to take the stage as Molly in Parkway Playhouse’s production of Annie. In fact, her very first show was Annie when she was three. She has been in over 20 productions all over WNC, with some favorite roles being Tinkerbell in Peter Pan, Victoria in CATS, Jitterbug in The Wizard of Oz, Fudge in Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, and Gretel in The Sound of Music.

Congratulations again to Aislin for her outstanding achievement! We look forward to seeing her and all the Academy members grow this next year as they prepare for the 2011 Junior Theatre Festival!
