Weyburn's Keisha Mowchenko has spent the last two years in Toronto taking a triple threat training course at the Randolph Academy For The Performing Arts.
She's had a variety of training, including dance classes, voice coaching, acting for film and musical theatre as well.
She says that she has been passionate about performing arts for many years.
"I was involved in all of the school musicals that happened when I was there," said Mowchenko. "I was in Urinetown when I was in grade 10, then Grease in grade 11 and I played Ariel in Footloose in the grade 12 musical in 2015."
Her current course in Toronto is almost all done and they are currently performing a musical named The Drowsy Chaperone for 10 days straight. She says that she has had a number of inspirations that have helped her to get to where she is today.
"Julie Andrews is my inspiration as a celebrity and my mom and dad are my foundation," Mowchenko said. "I wouldn't be half as far without them. My mom gave me her music and my dad gave me his leadership skills. I've tried to do my best with what they've both given me. I also want to give a shout out to Colleen Weimer, the music teacher at WCS, for giving me so many opportunities to develop in music with my classmates."
After her current course is finished, she will be continuing her performance training at the University of Surrey located within the county town of Guildford, Surrey in the South East of England, UK. She will be taking a year long master's program that will start in October.
"I will be living in the residence at the University of Surrey," said Mowchenko. "I'll be taking pretty much the same courses I'm taking right now. Just another level and in a different country and artistic culture. So it will be a lot of variety and another step in my training."
She said that she has always loved singing, ever since watching Disney movies as a child and she sees herself doing theatre in her future.
