what shannon did before hairspray....


theres a application on facebook called stage door and you can pick out all the shows youve seen.
anyway there is one part of the app. that has interviews of broadway stars telling what they did before broadway heres shannons interview:
Shannon Durig


Shannon is currently starring as Tracy Turnblad in the Broadway production of Hairspray. Originally from Overland Park, Kansas, she rose from being the understudy to playing the lead role and brings audiences to their feet every night!

What jobs did you have prior to working professionally in theatre?

I taught dance class and choreographed dances for different dance studios. I was a waitress at Planet Hollywood and Cilantro in NYC.

Any favorites? Why?

I loved teaching dance class because I got to work with the kids. I got to help young people express themselves and find a passion for something in life. That is one of the things that makes me most happy in life.

Any that you really disliked? Why?

I didn't dislike waitressing, I just wasn't good at it. But my tables always said I was nice.

Did you learn anything from these jobs which has helped you in your life/career?

I learned a lot from each job. How to communicate with people in all different situations and to always try and strive to be the best at what ever I was doing.

Do you have a funny story about a job you once had?

I was a waitress at Planet Hollywood and served ‘NSYNC and O-Town. I then later starred in Hairspray with Lance Bass and Ashley Parker Angel.

For more information on Shannon, please visit: http://www.shannondurig.com.

heres the link for the app. http://apps.facebook.com/stagedoor/?ref=ts

enjoy!
