MIRANDA CAMPIN BEST ACTRESS
For Miranda Campin, there’s no better place to be than onstage. “There’s a sort of sensation I feel when I’m onstage that I don’t feel anywhere else,” she says. “My heart skips a beat when I feel the stage lights on my eyelashes, and I hear the orchestra play their starting notes. I’ve found a home in the theater and wouldn’t want my heart to be anywhere else.”
Miranda has come a long way from her “101 Dalmatians” acting debut at age six. The rising theater star has accrued awards including Best Actress for her role in “The Crucible” and Outstanding Actress in Carroll’s thespian troupe. She’s also a member of Carroll’s varsity choral choir and show choir. In the years ahead, Miranda hopes to see her name in big-city lights. “I plan to major in musical theater and move to New York City to pursue my dream of being on Broadway,” she says.
WHAT OTHERS SAY:
“Miranda is an excellent young actor who brings a character study to an audition. She is always fresh, spontaneous and willing to change as directed,” says Roald Martinsen, theatre director. “She makes it easy for a director by her adaptability. Not all young actors have this skill.”
