Musical Theatre Means Everything to Contestant Hannah Tramonte - Next on Stage
The Next on Stage competition is narrowing down and we got the chance to chat with the contestants still in the race to win the grand prize!
Hannah Tramonte, a 2023 graduate of Highland High School, is back again this week in our top 10!
Why did you apply for Next on Stage?
I was scrolling through Instagram one night and I saw the competition pop up in my feed. I was already entering a few other competitions and so I decided to enter this one too not thinking much would come from it. Then all of sudden I am here!! Not in my wildest dreams would I have thought that it would've led to something as incredible as this!
Share a memory from seeing a show.
I remember seeing my little sister debut as Jasmine in her school musical "Aladdin" and I was so proud of her for getting up on stage and following her own dreams. It was moving to see that she was up there doing what she loves and we are able to share that love for the theatre together.
What does musical theatre mean to you?
EVERYTHING!! I love performing on stage, expressing myself through music, and working with others that share the same love for theatre as I do. Theatre gives me the opportunity to be myself and share my passion to reach and inspire others.
