My name is Phillippe.
I take on the challenging role of “Urban” at Ratzafratzland.
I usually start my preparation for getting into character right after my morning yoga class.
Mrs. Ilsa Broonfeld, my teacher at the Fresno Repertory Theatre, has passed on to me the secrets of the method.
I try to remember when I was the hungriest and how good a cookie would taste. I find my nose starts naturally twitching. I become the rat.
I eat very little as well. It keeps the hunger on my mind as well as keeping me in good form. There are thousands of actors ready to jump in this rat suit if I can’t fit into it.
My name is Phillippe, but for the young and the young at heart…
I am Urban.
Come soon, Come often!
