I started theatre because I wanted an after school activity, but most sports and clubs didn't really interest me.  I had friends telling me I should start doing theatre, but I was a bit skeptical at first.  I had done a little bit of of theatre when I was younger, but after I moved to Nevada, I stopped.  I had been seeing flyers for so many shows, and eventually I went and saw friends of mine perform in The Wiz, and I knew I had to do the next show.  All I knew was that I wanted to be a part of this, and I needed to start somewhere.
My first audition was for Alice in Wonderland.  I was really nervous about starting something new like this, but I knew I would love it.  After just one show, I knew this was a good direction I was headed.  I had found something I love to do and found out I love musicals!  After a few shows, I got into Showstoppers, which has turned into one of my top favorite things.  Over the course of almost two years, I've made so many great friends that are basically family.  No, not basically.  They are family.
Joining theatre and YTCC has given me many new experiences, allowed me to meet amazing people, and has given me so many unforgettable memories.  I am very proud to be a part of YTCC and to be able to have people to share all the unconditional love and happiness in my life.  YTCC provided me with a worry-free zone and allowed me to get away from the troubles in my life.  Thank you so much Andie, Bri and Kelly for your remarkable leadership and support!
Olivia Martin started performing with Youth Theater Carson City over three years ago. Since then she has been seen in many productions, most recently as Shenzi in The Lion King, Jr. and Mona Monroe in Give My Regards to Broadway. This is her second year as a YTCC Showstopper.
