In the VOS Production of Shrek the Musical, Young Fiona is a big talent in a little package. Alexia Boyagian has been coming to the theatre with her parents since she was “ten months old.”
“When I was a baby,” she says, “my parents said that everytime people would sing badly, I would scrunch my face up.”
We asked about the first sing-through for Shrek the Musical Orchestra. “I was nervous at first,” she replied, “and then it felt kinda good.”
When asked about what she likes about Shrek the Musical, she said, “The solos are fun. The people are really nice. I love my baby bear costume and my tiara. It’s ironic that the three bears is one of my favourite classic fairy tales, and I’m playing baby bear.”
Who is her favourite character in the show? “Donkey,” she replied. “He’s funny, just like in the Shrek movies. I think Jamie [Hunt] is really good in the role and was well cast.”
What’s the best part of being in a VOS show? “Everyone’s really nice, and I’ve made new friends. Especially my friend Shasta [Tinkerbell].”
Here is a tiny sneak peek of our talented Alexia in I Know It’s Today, from Shrek the Musical.
