Meet Samantha Abrams, Coward Land cast member

September 30, 2013 at 7:39 am

Sam Abrams 2 

Name: Samantha Abrams’17

Hometown: Gaysville, Vt.

What brought me to Beloit: Affordability, basketball, and the people!

My favorite class so far, and why you should take it: Fundamentals of Acting with John Kaufmann. I've never laughed harder on a regular basis in class.

You may have seen me: In the weight room or on the court working out with my team.

The best book I’ve read at Beloit: Hmm...I guess this book called Ceremony I read for English class.

Why you should come and see Coward Land: It's hilarious! We've been working so hard on this show...get ready for fun and to be made a little uncomfortable!

What are you working on? My game!

What’s on your desert island jukebox? The Strokes, Lana Del Rey, Cake, any kind of acoustic guitar music...oh, and any rap song by Nate Brault (and Joshua Evans) a.k.a. TROY & Eli.

Favorite meal? In Commons, my typical meal consists of salad, pizza, and hummus with tortilla chips. Occasionally there will be some potato salad or a slice of turkey with mustard in there.

What can’t you live without? Um, water.

Any advice? Stay true to yourself. Low confidence sucks. You need to believe in yourself...it's the only way to survive.

What do you do in your free time? What do you wish you did in your free time? Free time? Hahahahahahahahahaha.

What gets you up in the morning? The alarm on my iPod. It's a little guitar riff. That or one of my lovely roommates, Mykenzie Larsen and Nora Polaski.

What’s your favorite hidden gem here in the area? Laura Panicali.

Proudest moment? Signing autographs for little kids after starring in a big production of "Beauty & The Beast" as Mrs. Potts this summer.

What are you most looking forward to? Tomorrow, the weekend, something better. My next happy moment.
