Recently RWB School Aspirant Ryan Vetter was given the
opportunity to join the company on the US Moulin Rouge ® – The Ballet tour. Ryan’s hometown of Sioux Falls, South Dakota was the last stop of the tour and as you can imagine, much excitement ensued! We sat down to chat with Ryan about his experiences!
How did you feel about being added last minute to the casting for the US Tour? Excited, nervous, happy, all of the above?
Ryan: A little stressed – I had to learn everything so fast having been thrown in. I was excited because I was going to
e performing in my hometown and because it was my first real tour with the RWB Company. It was also the first bus tour I’ve been on.
Can you put into words how you felt up in front of your family and friends in your hometown?
Ryan: It was really fun because it was the last show so I felt the most confident because I had practice. It was an amazing feeling knowing that your family and friends were there supporting you. At the end we
got a standing ovation, and the waiters (the part I played) received a large applause.
What’s next up for Ryan?
