|Cami Larsen | Ensemble
can't believe she is finally joining in on a family tradition and army of Larsen's & Davis' who have performed here over the years. Cami loves to sing and dance on a stage, but that is secondary to loving the people she performs with. She just finished her freshman year at USU, and discovered that one truly does "go to college to get more knowledge." Cami loves the smell of a summer BBQ, belting songs in the car, wearing converse shoes, tubing down the Ogden River, wildflowers, and above all else, her family. "This one's for you, Grandpa and Grandma Larsen, 123!"
Tell us your current life situation.
I'm going to be a sophomore this coming year and I have decided on the perfect major: Family Consumer Science Education, which in English translates to, "I will teach the foods classes in High School." Who doesn't absolutely love those classes?!
What has been your favorite on-stage role and why?
Most definitely Urleen in Footloose! Check out that name, how could you not enjoy being called that?
What's the funniest thing that has happened to you on stage?
During Footloose in the 2nd act when Ren and Ariel were going through some hard times, and Ariel's beefed up boyfriend, Chuck, was being a butt. I was supposed to run on stage and tell Ren that chuck and Ariel had gotten in a fight, and then my bestie was going to tell him, that chuck had given Ariel a black eye. This particular night, just as I was about to run on, I realized my bestie was MIA. So, as I ran on stage, I thought through the situation and came up with the grand idea of saying her line too! I yelled, "Ren! Chuck and Ariel got into a black eye!" That night I learned that my mind doesn't work as swiftly as I'd like it to!
Who is your biggest fan?
Easy cheesy- my mama! I wish ya'll could see the way her eyes light up, her back straightens up, and her bum scoots to the edge of her seat whenever I sing or dance. Sitting right next to her is my Dad, whose smile says it all.
What's your favorite thing about Pickleville?
Oh man where to start? Ever since I was wee child I never missed out on an opportunity for a medium rare steak at the Western Cook-Out. I remember my affectionate brothers and cousins dumping their fat on my plate, and let me tell you something, I loved it! I don't eat the fat anymore, don't worry. But man, that steak is SOOOOO good! I have yet to consume a steak anywhere else that can even compete with ones from Pickleville.
If you could have one magical power what would it be?
Oh, this is a hard one because it's impossible to choose between flying and teleportation. It's easy to understand why flying would be so grand. Could you imagine how fast you would get places? And you'd never again spend hours searching for the keys (I have problem keeping track of those things)! I would love love love to be able to teleport to a beach in the Caribbean when I knew I had a half hour to spare. I mean think about that! Or let's say you have a day off work with nothing to do, YOU could go ANYWHERE!!!!! And just spend the day, no flight expenses, no hotel expenses- just fun.
What's your favorite food?
Well aside from Pickleville steak, I love fettuccine chicken alfredo.
What's your favorite Pickle Pete snow cone flavor?
Paradise of the passion, with ice cream in the middle.
What's your favorite place you've traveled?
HAWAII! I love it!
Tell us something about your family?
In our family we have a sign of affection we like to call the FRAPE. It's when you give a nice little swipe with your hand from the forehead down to the chin. Sometimes this sign of affection is taken the wrong way and then it becomes a battle, and the cheap shots begin! That's when you swipe starting from the chin to the forehead. Try it out.. see how that feels?
Do you have any secret talents?
Umm… Why yes I do. I can trill my uvula! Be jealous!
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be one of those people that goes out of the country at least every other year to do some sort of humanitarian trip. If that doesn't work out I will settle for a marathon runner…. I think that is super cool!
Tell us something else people would be interested to know about you.
My favorite color is green! Ingrid Michaelson is the best person to spend time with, her songs bring joyness to life! I am in training to become a yoga master, and I can successfully do the position known as Bird of Paradise, which I affectionately call the Bird of Death, but either works.
