DURHAM — Stéphanie Visconti is in South Carolina and says it’s “not a bad place to spend the summer.”
But the Pickering native isn’t on an extended vacation. She’s in the ensemble cast of Mamma Mia! at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina on Hilton Head Island until Aug. 6.
“It’s really, really great,” she says. “It’s a nice long run. It’s a very exciting show to be in because the ensemble is very involved. There’s a lot of singing; I’m singing all the time.”
Visconti says more than 400 actors auditioned for the 20 roles and her audition was in the form of a video submission.
In March, she had a run as one of six ensemble performers in Mame in Florida.
The day after her high school prom Visconti hopped on a plane to New York City to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City (NYC). She’s been beating the odds, landing roles and working steadily since graduating last fall.
