Ross made her professional theater debut at Wheelock Family Theatre as Winnie Foster in Tuck Everlasting, and later played the lead in Ramona Quimby and Liesl in The Sound of Music. Ross will be singing some of her favorite songs, watching part of the rehearsal of WFT's upcoming production of A Year with Frog and Toad, and will do an interview/Q&A with Wheelock Family Theatre co-founder Jane Staab.
Andrea recently spoke with the MetroWest Daily News:
“I’m loving every minute of it. This is one of the classics, of course, but it never gets old,” explained Ross by telephone last week from a Philadelphia tour stop. “I grew up doing theater. When I was a child, I played one of the youngest von Trapp daughters, Marta, in a production at the Franklin School for the Performing Arts, and, when I was 14, I played the oldest, Liesl, at Wheelock Family Theatre in Boston.”In the following video, Andrea performs as Maria, singing 'The Sound of Music' at the Dunkin' Donuts Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade.
