Spotlight On: Iesha Moore



Connecticut Theatre Company’s “Spotlight On…” series continues with a look into our talented cast and crew of Calendar Girls. Get to know Iesha Moore who is portraying Chris!




Introduce Yourself to Our Audience:

I’m Iesha, and I’ve been performing in one way or another since I was five years old.


Why did you want to be involved in this production?

It’s very rare to have a script with multiple women’s roles, and even rarer for those roles to be for older women. I appreciate when theatre companies make an effort to produce shows that give a wide range of people the opportunity to use their talents.


What sort of person is going to love this show?

I think anybody will enjoy the show, but it might especially appeal to women who have experienced their own life-long friendships.


What do you love about your character?

Chris is dynamic and vivacious. She tries to inject joy into every aspect of life, even the dullest moments.


Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite line of dialogue?

“Where have all the flowers gone?”


Who do you look up to (as an actor/director/etc.)?

Lucille Ball—I remember watching re-runs of “I Love Lucy” every day as a kid. I still watch them today and laugh just as hard. I’m sure some of her comedic style has leaked into my own.


What’s the last thing you do before you step out on stage / the curtain goes up?

I review my lines. 


What’s going to surprise people about this show?

I think people will come to laugh and be surprised by the touching moments.


Calendar Girls opens March 8th and runs through March 24th at Connecticut Theatre Company. Tickets on sale now!


“It’s a show full of poignant moments – about friendship, determination and hope; about loss in many forms; about the importance of acceptance; about knowing when to let go. But it also offers plenty of humour, as the six friends and WI members decide to pose nude for a calendar” – Liverpool Daily Post
