Meet Bailey Coronis, Guest Co-Director from Drake University
Get to know this year's co-director, Bailey Coronis, who is from Saint Paul, Minnesota and a sophomore at Drake University majoring in Acting and Digital Media Production.
Q: What shows have you participated in or directed in the past?
A: I have acted in several shows throughout my life. Some of my favorite roles include Lumiere in "Beauty and the Beast," Rooster in "Annie" and Prince Charming in "Cinderella, " Marcellus Washburn in "The Music Man," Doody in "Grease" and Nicely-Nicely Johnson in "Guys and Dolls."
At Drake my most recent credit was this past fall in "Nice Work If You Can Get It" where I was in the dance ensemble.
In high school, I was given the opportunity my junior and senior years to write and direct a one-act play. My junior year I wrote and directed a play titled, "Thinking Out Loud," which was about a high school student government election race. My senior year I wrote, directed and choreographed an original one-act musical called "Ask Penelope," which was about an advice column in a student-run newspaper.
Q: What are you most looking forward to about co-directing “Peter Pan” at St.Augustin?
A: I am most looking forward to getting to work with the students. It seems they are really excited about this project, and I am so excited to direct them and hopefully get them to produce a piece of theatre they are proud of.
Q: Tell us something fun about yourself.
A: When I graduated high school, I was given the amazing opportunity to go to Los Angeles for four months to be a production assistant on the television show, “Top Chef JR.” It was an amazing experience, and although it was a lot of work, I really enjoyed my time on set.
