Foshay Flash reporters interviewed Dillon Klena, who played the role of Harold Hill in the Music Man.

 

Foshay Flash: What did you like best about playing Harold Hill?

Klena: I loved playing Harold Hill because of the songs he got to sing.

 

Foshay Flash: What was your favorite song in the Music Man?

Klena: “Trouble” is my favorite song in the Music Man because it’s the first time we get to see Harold Hill and his con man side. It also sets the exposition of the musical in its entirety.

 

Foshay Flash: What was your favorite scene in the Music Man?

Klena: My favorite scene in the play is “Marian The Librarian” because it shows how much love he has for Marian and foreshadows the love that grows between the two characters.

 

Foshay Flash: What was the favorite role that you played in the plays that you’ve been in?

Klena: During my performing life, there have been many roles that I enjoyed doing. These include; Melchior in Spring Awakening, Shrek in Shrek, Cat In The Hat in Seussical, and Peter Pan in Peter Pan!

 

Foshay Flash:  What play would you like to do that you haven’t done, and what role would you like to play in it?

Klena: I would love to play Jack Kelly in Newsies! That has always been a dream role of mine so I hope it can happen in the future.

 

Foshay Flash: What is your favorite play?

Klena: My favorite musical is Spider-Man because it puts my childhood on the stage. I loved superheroes and it lit up my face every time I would see it!

 

Foshay Flash: How long have you been acting? How did you get started?

Klena: I started performing at the age of 3 with MET. My brother started in this company when he was 7 and then I was born. I was basically born into MET and born into musical theater.

 

Foshay Flash: What was the hardest role you’ve played, and why

Klena: The hardest role I have ever played would have to be Shrek. Shrek was fun but it was hard because I had to be someone completely different. With the prosthetics and the costume, I transformed into this ugly hideous Ogre.
