"Humans of Sacred Heart" – Caitlyn Mitchell ’20

What is this year’s Fall Play, and which character will you play?

“This year’s fall play is Macbeth.  It’s very different from previous shows I’ve performed because it’s a Shakespearean play.  I will be playing Macduff in this year’s play. He is often considered the foil to Macbeth because while Macbeth is aggressive and uses violence to achieve his goals, Macduff acts justly and treats others with respect.”

What is your favorite part of the play to perform?

“My favorite part of the play is when Emma [DeMartino ’19], who plays Macbeth, and I have a sword-fight.  This is our first time performing stage-combat, and the scene itself is often considered the climax of the show.  The two of us have worked hours upon end perfecting the scene, and we can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

What is your favorite memory from rehearsals?

“My favorite parts of rehearsal are probably the five-minute nap times.  We all bring our blankets, turn off the lights in the theatre, and sleep.  It’s a time to recharge after running the show numerous times.”
