Hi, I’m Scout! This is my first show at Outvisible Theatre, and I’m very excited to share this new experience. I have been performing since I was ten years old. My first show was Inherit the Wind at the Players Guild of Dearborn, and since then, I’ve loved being on stage. I was most recently in Dearborn High School’s production of Chicago, where I played The Hunyak. In between running around Michigan to get to rehearsal, I love to hang out with my family, surprise them with my amazing baking skills, relax on the couch with my dog, and just be weird with my siblings. I want to thank my family for being so helpful and supportive during the entire process of the show, especially my sister, who would drop everything to help me out with my show work, even though she was just as busy with it herself. I hope you enjoy Cagebirds!
