Grey Gardens - meet cast member Penelope Gallagher

Meet Penelope Gallager who is playing Lee Bouvier in LTA's Grey Gardens.

What do you find appealing about Lee in Grey Gardens?
My character is a real life princess!

What have you learned about yourself in playing this role?
Her older sister becomes the first lady of the United States.  That's pretty cool!  It's fun to have an older sister, even if it's just for a show because I don't have any sisters.

What single word would you use to describe Lee?
Tomboy.

What do you want the audience to take away from this show?
The love between mothers and daughters is powerful.

How does this show differ from other shows you have worked on?
It has a really small cast.

How long have you been acting and how did you get involved with LTA?
I've been acting for six years starting with drama camps.  The LTA summer camps are great!

What advice would you give others who want to get involved with theatre?
Never give up!  You'll have a lof of no's at auditions but the little yes's you have, you will cherish.
