BLOOD BROTHERS BLOG #10: Actress Kayla Wickes

So since Rowan Michael Meyer already wrote a piece that embodies everything I feel about this production of Blood Brothers,

I thought I would share something different. I always make playlists for every show I’m in.

BlogKaylawithBoys   Because APAC has this neat blog thingy, I figured I would make this playlist public.

Some of it is a bit funny, and some of it is pretty accurate. This is just for fun! I hope you enjoy it!
