Interview with Shaquille Hemmans

A couple of weeks ago I went to see 'Thriller Live' at my local theatre - it was a fantastic show - nothing like I expected, but that's not what this post is about! The next day I got in touch with one of the lead singers, Shaquille Hemmans, and he very kindly agreed to let me interview him! Shaquille started singing when he was 12 years old, and  has since taken on many roles, both on and off stage - the most notable being his role in Disney Channel's "Ant Farm". The following section contains my questions and Shaquille's answers:

If you could describe 'Thriller Live' in 3 words, what would they be?

"THRILLING, ENTERTAINING, Magical"

 If you could play any character in a show, regardless of age or gender, who would it be? 

"Seaweed hairspray lol or one of the dreamgirls character Curtis"

Is it difficult to do the same show, but in lots of different theatres? Does the large set help or hinder it?

"It's not really difficult doing the shows if anything we all become tired fast during the end of the week as we do 8 shows a week so we do become tired but we love going to different theatres and cities seeing the crowd. The larger set really helps us a lot"

If you could give advice to any aspiring performers, what would it be?

"To always work hard and stay dedicated to the craft and never give up always stay prepared and up on your material. Watch videos of your favorite performer."

A huge thank you to Shaquille for letting me interview him, and I wish the Thriller cast the best of luck for the rest of their tour!
