Gabrielle Browdy Gabrielle Browdy

Q: Where are you from?

Deerfield, IL

Q: How did you hear about The Music Theatre Company? What made you audition for the Young Artists’ Program?

I had heard amazing things about TMTC through a few friends who have been involved in past productions of the Young Artists’ Program, and thought it would be a great experience to audition and be a part of this year’s program.

Q: What is your process of developing a character? How do you begin?

I always start by asking myself simple questions: Who am I? Where am I? What do I want? Why do I want it?

It’s important to me to clearly have all my superobjectives and tactics stated so that I am able to strongly explore the depth of my character.

Q: What do you hope to gain from YAP? What experiences are you most looking forward to?

I hope to gain many friendships and strong bonds during this year’s program. The whole cast is so incredibly welcoming, and it has been exciting to learn new things from other actors with whom I have not yet worked.

New work is always very exciting because no one has ever played the character that you will be playing. This makes the process incredibly exciting! I am excited about the final product and I can’t wait to keep learning, growing, and smiling throughout the program.

Q: What do you want audiences to take away from the production? 

When audiences view our production for the first time, I want them to see the relationships and ideas in the text and for them to relate to some of these characters’ experiences.

Q: What song is currently your summer anthem?

My summer anthem definitely has to be “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line, I can never stop dancing when that song comes on!

Q: What is your favorite food on a hot summer day?

Raspberry lemonade iced tea!
