SOLUNA SPOTLIGHT - Aly Shidlofsky
Today I am interviewing the lovely Aly Shidlofsky! Aly is a recent graduate of Adelphi University. If you came to the opening, you may remember her performing a monologue from Neil Labute’s Fat Pig. She is one of our acting teachers and will be starring in The Odd Couple: Female Version as Florence and our Murder Mystery Dinner Theater as the over-bearing Mother Of The Groom!
KELLY: What made you want to become a teacher?
ALY: I was taught by several fantastic teachers in my life who inspired me and molded me into the person I am today. I want to continue that with the next generation. I want to inspire them and share my love of the arts with them. It’s all about learning and growing!
KELLY: When did your love of theatre really begin?
ALY: I caught the bug at the age of 3. My preschool teachers told my mother to get me into acting classes because I was dramatically re-enacting the Power Rangers on the playground. I began at my local community theater in Plano, TX and haven’t stopped since!
KELLY: What do you think makes SoLuna different than other performing arts studios on Long Island?
ALY: SoLuna is giving everyone involved artistic freedom and the chance to learn and grow as actors. We’re really starting a family here.
KELLY: That’s so funny, I said that in my first blog! Get out of my head!
ALY: I’m always in your head.
KELLY: Clearly! We just had our first read-through of our Murder Mystery Dinner Theater “Marriage Can Be Murder” earlier today. What do you think of the show and the cast?
ALY: The cast is obviously fantastic, and so talented and funny-
KELLY: Oh stooop!
ALY: The show is going to be very different and entertaining. You get to see a very talented group of people and eat some yummy food at the SAME TIME! So why NOT come, right?
ALY: It’s the best of both worlds!
KELLY: Dinner AND a show for $45? That’s pretty cheap. And it’s going to be SO funny AND have audience participation! Before we go, just tell me one thing you think people should know about Aly Shidlofsky!
ALY: I like long walks on the beach and Pina Coladas and men named Eduardo.
KELLY: I’ll keep that in mind. Want to work with Aly? Try out for Sweet Charity and/or Company, which Aly will be directing in the spring!
