Meet the Players: Christine Janak

In our Macbeth “Meet the Players” series, we’re interviewing the cast of our upcoming production. Get to know all the players you’ll see on stage in our ballet adaptation of ‘The Scottish Play’ March 29, 30 and 31 at the Athenaeum Theatre.


CRB: Tell us a little bit about yourself, and how long you’ve been with the company.

Christine: “This is my second year with the company. In my spare time I enjoy shooting photography1”

CRB: What are your thoughts about this ballet adaptation of Macbeth?

Christine: “This show will give you goosebumps.”

CRB: Do you have any anecdotes to share?

Christine: “*spoiler alert* I get to portray a variety of roles in Macbeth from tree-soldier, to witch, party guest, to McDuff Child. I really enjoy getting to try out all the diffrent personas and their movement quality. Because of my experience with more pantomime theater, I have trouble with subtlety and usually get the feedback to BE the role rather than Show it. Well one day in rehearsal I really got it right. I was so thrilled to have one of my characters right the first time. "Christine" Wade said, "You really know how to 'Die' you could put that on your resume, 'excellent at dramatic death'."

See Christine and the rest of this incredible cast of performers on March 29, 30 and 31st at The Athenaeum Theatre. Get your tickets today!
