ALISSA DEL VECCHIO

They said not to choose favourites, but there’s something about the awkward Alissa that’s so incredibly mesmerising. Maybe it’s the fact that she keeps you on your toes with her…obscure…answers or maybe she just embodies Penny in a spiritual level. She was hilarious to interview and trust me when I say she needs a reality TV show. This is Penn…Alissa Del Vecchio, the quintessential Penny Pingleton.


 

WHAT IS HAIRSPRAY? (To you)

Alissa: Hairspray reminds me of growing up as a performer, a constant growth, the smell of hairspray, hairspray with …hairspray on it….. A constant image in my life.

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER

Alissa: Well, Penny. Shes a massive massive dork, she falls up the stairs exactly the same way I do. She’s loyal, she has no filter in the most innocent way. She’s the quintessential bestfriend of any musical

DO YOU HAVE ANY PREPARATION ROUTINES BEFORE GETTING INTO CHARACTER/PERFORMING

Alissa: I put on my glasses

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THE 60’S

Alissa: The family ritual of running home to watch a TV Show!

IF YOU DID LIVE IN THE 60’S…WHAT WOULD YOU MISS THE MOST (FROM NOW)

Allisa: *thinks strong and hard* Hmmm…HEATED CAR SEATS!

SELL ME HAIRSPRAY IN 3 WORDS

Allisa: Charming, Unique, Innovative
