I'm excited to introduce you to another new intern, Connor Shea. Connor is a student of mine at Natick High School and I'm excited to work with him on this new dance adventure! Stay tuned for interviews with Connor and Jacob next week! -Nicole
Connor Shea is a Sophomore at Natick High School and is beyond excited to begin his internship with Monkeyhouse! Connor comes from a musical theatre background; beginning theatre when he was in 4th grade. He has been in RENT, Legally Blonde the Musical, Once Upon a Mattress, The Drowsy Chaperone, Little Women the Musical, and many more. His favorite performance so far is Mark Cohen in RENT. He found such a strong connection with the character and was attracted to the realness and depth of the overall message of the show; along with the music and script. Connor is not a dancer by any means but is however, eager to learn the skills and technique that it takes to dance. He is so blessed to have Nicole, his choreographer and dance teacher, teach him the ways of dance, specifically tap. Connor is part of Natick High School Drama, along with the Natick High School Speech and Debate team; where he participates in events such as Prose Reading and Poetry Reading. What Connor finds fascinating and astonishing about the theatre community is the people. Connor loves how everyone is so accepting and welcoming! The community and people are a big part of Connor’s love for theatre. This is Connor’s first dance experience outside of a show. He hopes for the absolute best throughout the entire process and wishes to come out of the internship with a new love and knowledge for dance and theatre communities as a whole!
