We're down to our top 5 in the Next on Stage competition!

Contestant Amanda Swickle shares more about her charity, the new skill she's learning during quarantine and why Beetlejuice is one of her favorite musicals!


What charity did you pick and why?

I decided to donate to BCEFA because I performed in the Easter bonnet with them 2 years ago and seeing what they did for the broadway community was so inspiring to me! I also want to contribute to their COVID-19 emergency efforts right now.

Why did you apply for Next on Stage?

I applied to Next on Stage so I can share my voice with the entire world! When I heard that I could have the chance to record an original at broadway records, it was like a possible dream that could come true! I've always dreamed of recording there just like some of my favorite broadway stars! To imagine myself singing there is crazy! I was also interested in donating 1000 dollars to charity because I always like to give back to the community and help people in need.

What is your favorite musical and why?

Beetlejuice is one of my favorite musicals. The set, costumes, and actors where all so amazing! I've never heard of beetle juice before and the show was so exciting and fun. There were so many surprises and the songs were all so funny and breath taking at the same time! I never wanted the night to end.

What have you been doing during quarantine?

I have been reading and making Tik Tok's all day long! I also watch a movie on Netflix to end off each night. I also practice playing the piano and continue to learn new songs everyday! I also recently started learning how to use the skateboard and It's so much fun!

Give a shoutout and share a fun fact!

I want to thank my family, my friends and everyone who has voted for me so far. None of this would have been possible without them and I'm truly so thankful! A funny fun fact about me is that I can do an awesome belly role!
