NHS Senior Scores Lead Role in Davenport Junior Theatre’s “Beauty & the Beast”

Karen Jorgenson, Davenport North senior, is a veteran stage performer. She is currently performing in the role of “Beast” in a non-musical production of “Beauty and the Beast” at Davenport Junior Theatre. The role is usually cast as a male lead, however the theater’s artistic director feels that Jorgenson was a natural fit for the role. “It had a lot to do with what actor was strong enough to carry the entire production,” said Daniel Sheridan, the theater’s artistic director. “Karen has a lot of classical instincts, particularly in the way she presents her voice.”
