I am also involved in Student Senate, A Capella Choir and the Freshman Mentor program at Scioto! In my free time, I love to read, write, and sing lots (of showtunes). My favorite roles to date have been Sally Brown in Charlie Brown, Spider in James & the Giant Peach, and Assistant Stage Manager for Spamalot. I encourage everyone and anyone to come to a Drama Club meeting to learn more about our program and give acting or tech a try- if you have any questions or want to talk, add me on snap @brenna_daugh or DM me on instagram!

Norah Gilbert


Hey guys! My name is Norah Gilbert and I’m a senior this year. Theatre has always been a huge part of my life, and being part of Scioto’s theater department has been such an amazing experience. Some of my favorite roles have been Amelia Earhart in “Calling Amelia” and Mae Tuck in “Tuck Everlasting”, and I’ve also had the incredible opportunity to teach vocals for the Theatre 3 class. When I’m not in the theater, I’m in the DSHS Marching Band, Irish Fiddle Fetish, and Dublin Taiko Group, and I love to draw and paint on my own. I’m super excited for Theatre this year with all of you!
