Regine Riviere - interACTor of the Month
Regine has always enjoyed performing in school choruses and church choirs, but never took it seriously until, after having done a few vocal recitals, she was encouraged by her vocal coach to give it a try. She searched for local theatre companies and found InterACT. She's performed in several interACT productions such as "The Full Monty," "The Vagina Monologues," and "Sister Act: The Musical" as well as the "interACT Sings!" Musical Revues, "Page to Stage," "On the Air," "Stay Tuned," and "British Invasion." She was also House Manager for "Carrie: The Musical," and "The Importance of Being Ernest." Outside of interACT, Regine was part of the ensemble cast of "Ragtime," and played Motormouth Maybelle in "Hairspray." Soon you will see her in the ensemble cast of interACT's production of "Black Nativity directed by Broadway's Brandi Chavonne Massey. You can also see her and a couple of familiar interACT faces in the Essex County based band Flip da Skrip.

Why do you participate in theatre?
I participate in theatre because I enjoy being around people who appreciate the arts as much as I do. Theatre is a great way to see multiple art forms such as music, dance, and visual art come together.

How long have you been active in theatre? 
I performed in a production of Ragtime during my freshman year in college in Spring 2003, but I didn't really get into theatre until 2013.

What does interACT mean to you? 
InterACT has helped me to become more confident in my abilities as a performer. I knew that I was a strong singer, but acting wasn't something I was used to. InterACT has a way of exposing certain personal strengths that you never knew existed.

What keeps you coming back? 
I come back to InterACT because of the amazing production selections. I see great opportunities for people of color in the shows they produce. I come back because I've formed lasting friendships with other members of the InterACT family, and I feel like I'm connecting with my community. 

What you would like to say to anyone who has been thinking of being a part one of our productions?
If anyone would like to participate in an interact production, come on out and give it a shot. We don't bite. During the audition process, you are greeted with so much kindness that you forget about the nerves. I think that everyone has a creative gift. If you feel that being on stage is not for you, there is definitely something behind the scenes that can help your talent shine.


Nola Sigmund - Youth interACTor of the Month
Nola Sigmund, a Maplewood Middle School 6th grader, is very excited to be the first Youth interACTor of the Month! She's appeared in 4 interACT Youth productions, playing Kaa in "Jungle BookKids!" Axel in "Camp Rock," Balfour in" Treasure Island," and Ensemble/Interplanet Janet in "Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr."  She loves the friends she's made, Tasha and the interACT crew, and the fun and hard work they do pays off in great shows!  Nola was also a host of last year's amazing Tuscan School show "Are we there Yet?" When she’s not on stage, Nola loves friends, sports, her dogs, her parents and, sometimes, her sister.

Why do you participate in theatre?
I participate in theater because it makes your creative juices flow and ,brings something out of you that you didn't know you had.

How long have you been active in theatre? 
I've been active in theater seen I was in Second grade

What does interACT mean to you? 
Interact means so much to mean and I couldn't imagine my life without it. 

What keeps you coming back? 
What keeps me coming back is all the good friends you make and every show is so much fun!
