Representative-Sandia Prep

Hi I’m Bailey:) I’ve been involved with theater since 6th grade, acting in, doing tech, and now directing for our newest play. Now being a senior, all of my theater background has prepared me to be Vice President of my thespian troupe. Outside of theater I’ve been on Sandia Preps competitive dance team for 6 years, and was the team leader for the yearly 48 hour play fest. I’m excited to keep my love of theater running far past high school, preparing to be a screen/playwright. So happy to be in the weird theater kid community aha:)

Marcella Tafoya

Representative-Moreno High School

I am an energetic, hard working woman, born and raised in Black Lake, New Mexico. My whole life I worked on a ranch with my family of nine. As a child I grew a passion for theater very quickly. I started pursuing as soon as I possibly could, with Missoula Children's Theater. I started attending the state thespian festival my freshman year and performed "Pulled" from the Addams Family. I then qualified for Nationals. From there my love for theater onlyexpanded. During lockdown for Covid I took the advantage of working virtually with The Adderley School Conservatory, working on the production of Into the Woods, where I had the pleasure of playing Jack. Then, In May of 2021 I was a nominee for best actress, and performed in The Enchantment awards.
