Name? Anna Ostrem
Character: Elizabeth Cratchit, Fan Ebenezer, and Want
How many years have you been in ACT’s A Christmas Carol? I have been in A Christmas Carol three times. Each year being incredible and exhilarating and joyful.
What do you look forward to each year? I look forward to Secret Santa and green room dance parties.
How do you get prepared for a show? I brush thoroughly through my long hair and drink a ton of water.
What do you always have to do before a show? I always have to have my panda pillow pet named Tilly in my dressing room to sit on and give me good luck.
If you could be any character in A Christmas Carol, who would you want to be? If I could be anyone in the show I would love to be Spirit 1. She is just so graceful and delightful, plus the costume is beautiful.
What is your favorite moment (backstage or onstage)? The best moment in A Christmas Carol by far is the bread lady and sausage man encounter.
