Many know Sonia Neu as a great friend of MCT through her providing wonderful photography for our shows. However, in talking to Sonia this past week, I found her to be a true overall advocate of local arts, through teaching, producing and performing.
What is your background in theater?
I have been involved in shows in different ways my whole life. I started with doing children’s theater with my mom, who also performed. I’ve also worked many youth productions with Geoff Hall and Alicia Greathouse. I even met my husband while working on Hello Dolly!
Why do you provide photography for MCT?
It is a way to support the organization, for photos often set the mood and provide appeal for upcoming shows. I have been doing it for eight years and really enjoy it. However, I have to say that I am itching to perform again!
Do you have a favorite show or production you have been part of?
As piano and voice teacher, I obviously have a special place in my heart for musicals. The one I enjoyed the most being in was My Fair Lady. I’ve never been in it, but my overall favorite would be Ragtime.
What do you love about MCT?
It’s a wonderful “small box” theater. MCT offers a real outlet for local talent. The theater also provides a diversity of shows. In addition, I think it provides opportunities to multigenerational and other groups that could be expanded upon.
