Logie participates in a number of activities, not just theater.

Many high school theater students have been performing since their freshman year, but this is not the case for senior Monique Logie. The drama standout has been participating in WJ S*T*A*G*E for only two years, but enjoys it immensely.

“I’ve always been interested in stage, but my junior year was the first year I did something about it,” said Logie. “[WJ S*T*A*G*E has] been really fun, I’ve made a lot of new friends and good memories.”

Logie is going to star in this year’s winter play, The Crucible. She will be playing Tituba, a 17th century Massachusetts slave and alleged witch. Logie would like to also get a major role in the spring musical in 2015.

“It would be nice [to get a lead role], but I’m not expecting it,” she said.

Logie does not plan on attending a conservatory for college, something a lot of talented high school actors plan on doing, nor does she want to major in any theater-related study.

“It’s usually really hard to find [an acting] job after college since there are so many people who are so talented,” she said.

She plans on majoring in mass communications instead.

Besides theater, Logie takes part in activities such as the Black Student Union, participates in the annual cultural assembly and is a member of the leadership class. She encourages students who want to pursue their dream career to be persistent.

“Don’t stop trying, just keep trying,” said Logie.
