Jaclyn Inglis
  ("Sylvia" / boom operator)

"It all started on July 23, 1990.....then we skip a few years to 2002. 
Though my mom had asked me if I wanted to act since I was little, I never truly got the nerves to try out for a play until I was in 7th grade. It was a school play and I made a great role and it was too much fun to stop there--so, I didn't. I then tried out for the spring play that year and then the fall and spring shows the next year. The summer, as well as the next, I attended Shaker Theatre Camp, where I met the Oh-So-talented Peter Fields. Participating in the Freshman Theatre Performance at Shaker Heights High School as well as the Theatre I and Theatre II classes, made acting part of my world. I am now in the Shaker High School Theatre Advanced Ensemble class and hope to tryout for as many of the Shaker Theatre performances as possible--and I am soon to be accepted as part of the International Thespian Society. On top of the 3 years of acting experience, I also have 9 years of both piano and softball experience, as well as 4 years in the Cleveland Orchestra Children's Chorus and I love to draw, write, bike, swim, play soccer, and go on in my spare time!! the Lords of Praxton was my first feature film and I feel that there could not be a better cast and crew to work with out there."     (Click Here to Go Back to Top of Page)
