Senior Spotlights

Katelyn Baker

First show: Aida (Ensemble)

Earliest memory at Paragon: Nicole being very annoyed with level 2 during Aida because we could not remember our 4 measures of “ahhh”’s. 

Favorite memory: While there are so many, but probably sitting in the lobby with Sophia, Nina, and Sadie during Damn Yankees and doing our own dances during all of the numbers and feasting on our snacks from Rite Aid!

Favorite show and why: Little Women! Everything about that show made me so happy even though I wasn’t a major role. I loved meeting some of the adults during that show and I learned a lot in that year! 

What have you learned during your time at Paragon: So much! Most importantly thought how to be ok with being outside of my comfort zone! 

After high school plans: I am attending Grove City College in the fall and majoring in marketing!

Any parting words: Thank you to everyone who I have met at my time at Paragon you all have made this place such a special place to me, especially Deb. Also, thank you to my parents who drove me to all the Saturday morning rehearsals!

Logan Mlecko

First show: Snoopy! I was in the ensemble.

Earliest memory at Paragon:

Favorite memory: The first run through of Revolting Children (Matilda) with everybody. It was the most energetic the room had ever been!

Favorite show and why: Into the Woods. I love the story and how all the songs flow through it

I have learned how to perform an engaging improve.

After high school plans: I will be attending Kent State and I hope to do something with art or theater

Any parting words: Have fun with everything you do cause it will pass you by and you want to take the good memories when its gone

Regan Borsh

First show: Seussical! I was a Who.

Earliest memory at Paragon: Backstage of Seussical making puzzles while we waited to go onstage.

Favorite memory: All of us trying not to giggle during the frozen scene in Matilda.

Favorite show: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at high school. It was my dream show. Also Matilda at Paragon because it was such a good cast and everyone worked hard and put in the same amount of effort.

What have you learned at Paragon: I’ve definitely learned how to open myself up to more new people.

After high school plans: I will be attending Slippery Rock University majoring in K-4 grade education.

Nina Lee

First show: Little Women (Troll/Ensemble)

Earliest memory at Paragon: Walking in and seeing everyone smiling and waving. No one knew me at all, but I felt welcomed right from the start.

Favorite memory: A few of us level 4 kids took the roles of newsies (ironically) in Damn Yankees. Sophia, Sadie, Katelyn, and I had so much fun backstage and out in the lobby! One night something got a little messed up and I felt like I was swinging my fake newspaper around forever waiting to say my line. Probably no one else noticed it, but it felt like forever to me!

Favorite show and why: Chicago or Newsies! Chicago was so thrilling and full of personality. Newsies, on the other hand, would be my favorite because of my role. Race is so fun to play.

What have you learned during your time at Paragon: I’ve learned what community is. I’ve learned that you can walk into a room full of strangers and become best friends.

After high school plans: I plan to go to Slippery Rock University for a major in Secondary Education Social Studies and a minor in Theatre.

Any parting words: To all my Paragon friends and staff – thank you for everything! Being here has meant the world to me and I don’t know what I would do without you all. Everyone was always quick to support and cheer me up and I will be forever grateful for that. From my first audition, to Abby telling me to point my toes, to revolting and spelling it how I’d like, and seizing the day…I can’t thank everyone enough. I’m going to miss everyone so much and I can’t wait to see what everyone accomplishes!
