Nine years ago, six year old Alexa Domzalski waved her magic wand and scurried to Kids Castle dressed up as one of her favorite characters Hermione Granger. As her black robe cascaded behind her, her eyes widened at the mesmerizing display.

Purple tarps, bright lights and silver props scattered the park. The theme was Hogwarts and the show was produced by local community theatre Studio B. An adult with a bright smile came to Domzalski and asked if she was a part of it. When she replied no, they laughed.

“You look so good in costume, why don’t you go join the greeters?” said the adult.

That question is what brought one of Domzalski’s hobbies to life.

“I had always wanted to act when I was really little, and that’s when I first got involved,” Domzalski said.

Domzalski, now a freshman, started her work with Studio B after that event. Starting with her first role in “The Little Mermaid”, Domzalski has been in over ten community plays and has been cast as a variety of characters, she even played a boy in the musical “All Shook Up,”

“I played Dennis,” Domzalski said. “It was a weird character, but the experience was interesting. It’s also a great thing to add to a resume.”

When she came to this school as a freshman, she joined the theatre department and auditioned for the fall show of “The Crucible”. It shocked her when she eventually got one of the lead females, Abigail, a spiteful and manipulative teenager. Even though it was stressful for her, since it was her first play at Marcus, Domzalski said it was a great way to start her career at the school.

“I met so many people that I’m pretty good friends with now,” Domzalski said.

Along with “The Crucible”, Domzalski has been in the all school musical “Bye Bye Birdy” and the UIL One Act “The Elephant Man.” She says that since she is in two theatre studios, she has learned more about the theatre world and how it works. She also has made many friends that make theatre less “dramatic” for her.

“The memories backstage were the best,” Domzalski said. “We’d play games to destress and always had good times.”

Domzalski plans to do community theatre and as an extracurricular in college, but not professionally. She says it is more of a fun hobby to her. She doesn’t know what her path will be, but there will always be a little of that magic she had when she six years old.
