Remember the story I did on First Stage Theater's production of A Wrinkle in Time? No? That's okay. Now you get to meet one of the young actors who is also the recipient of the Lois Lowry Scholarship Award: Erin Stapleton. Erin, a junior at , is poised and articulate and knows exactly what she wants---to be an actress, and a dang good one at that. I met up with Erin, as well as Jennifer Hubbartt (Marketing and Public Relations Director for First Stage) at First Stage to talk about the actor's craft, her love of acting, and how her family and friends were able to keep a secret.
