Michelle's answers

Ok, I don't know how many of you wanted to see this, but here are Michelle's answers to my questions about theatre. And those of you who don't know WHY, I wrote and asked her if she'd answer some questions for my career project I had to do--we had to find people in career fields that interested us. And Michelle said yes, she would answer some questions. Yaaay Michelle! Oh and I typed everything the way Michelle had it - if she wrote "yr" I wrote yr. Just so you know. ;D
