Sara Turnipseed is a 5th grader at St. Edward the Confessor School in Metairie. She is beyond excited to play the lead role of Matilda, and can’t wait to grace the stage. Sara has previously appeared at Rivertown Theaters in Elf, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Descendants Jr, Oliver, and Seussical Jr. She has also been in The Little Mermaid Jr at JPAC. She is excited to share the stage with her best friend, Leah Drago (Alice). She is so grateful to work under the guidance of Mrs. Kelly, Ms. Katelin, and Mr. Karl. She has learned so much from them and will always treasure this awesome opportunity! She would like to thank her friends and family for all of their love and support during this time!
