Mira Nina! Meet Veronica, who plays Nina in In The Heights!
What are some of your favorite roles you've played?
“Some of my favorite past roles include The Witch in Into the Woods, Anita in West Side Story, and Ms. Pennywise in Urinetown, because I really love playing such outrageous characters. I also loved getting to play Belle in Beauty and the Beast.”
What theatre/acting/dance/etc. training do you have?
“Over the years I've studied voice in theatre, jazz, and opera/classical. I've taken dance lessons for as long as I can remember, and studied acting in CAP classes for many years.”
What does the role mean to you?
“I am so honored to be playing Nina. She is such a strong character and I love getting to experience all of the emotions that she goes through in the course of the show. I think a lot of people will be able to relate to her, as she finds ways to deal with her academic, familial, and romantic struggles. I hope I am able to portray Nina's tremendous growth as we take the audience through her journey.”
“CAP is such an incredible theatre to be a part of. It is only fitting that we perform as this close-knit community of the barrio and replicate that in our own off-stage relationships as a cast. Working with such talented people is not only a privilege, but a learning experience that I am thrilled to be taking part in.”
