Imagine putting yourself on stage and becoming someone else

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At a performance of the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina’s “Rock of Ages,” we asked: “If you were – or are – an actor or performer, what role would you most like to play on stage or screen, and why?”

Karen Cerrati, Hilton Head Island: “I’d just want to be Elizabeth Taylor in her prime, like in ‘Cleopatra’ or ‘Butterfield 8.’”

Don Hite, Hilton Head Island: “I’d want to play Tobias in ‘Sweeney Todd’: ‘Nothin’s going to harm you, not while I’m around.’”

Andrew Davis, Hilton Head Island: “I’d like to be Maverick in ‘Top Gun,’ because he’s cool, he gets to fly jets, and he’s the best all around pilot.”












Avery Wallace, Hilton Head Island: “Odette and Odile in ‘Swan Lake.’ It’s a dual role, and it’s my dream role as a ballet dancer.”

Dan Wallace, Hilton Head Island: “I’d want to be Phil Conners in ‘Groundhog Day.’ I’d like to do everything over and over – it’s my take on immortality.”
