To kick off our final weekend of #HouseRulesTSC the charming Lara Leah Hitchcock (Cathy) answered a few questions. See tonight at 8 pm! Reserve your seats-- give us a call!

Q: When did you start working on stage?
A: "I started participating in theatre at the age of 13. I was the screaming rose in Beauty and the Beast (Oak Ridge Playhouse) and I was hooked, both to being a fragile flower and screaming."
