We’re so excited to announce that one of our DMR All Stars, Anya Rothman, booked the role of Sweetie Pie in the pre-Broadway run of the new musical Because of Winn Dixie, based on the book of the same name, at Delaware Theatre Company. The musical has a Book by Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and Music by Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening). The musical will be directed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge, who was nominated for a Tony for her revival of Ragtime. We’re all SO excited for Anya and thrilled that a larger audience will get to see how truly amazing and professional she is!
Anya has participated in all of the Broadway Master Classes we’ve hosted in Charlottesville with instructors Brad Bass & Keven Quillon. She was also featured in our first camp in 2014, Broadway Baby. She played a narrator in our fall production of Cinderella, Kids, and played Little Red in our award-winning Junior Theater Festival short production of Into the Woods, Jr.
