EMAV 10 Bites: Anita Bean, Performer

Updated: Mar 9, 2019

In every neighborhood, there is someone who makes the Arts a part of their life, and our community. You'd be surprised to discover how many different people use the arts to improve the quality of life in or hometown. EAT MORE ART! VEGAS will feature them regularly in our series "10 Bites."

What performing art do you do?

Theatre, Musical Theatre

Why do you do it?

I love to perform and entertain people

What’s your favorite production/performance so far?

So far my current production, Young Frankenstein [produced by Poor Richard's Players at Super Summer Theatre].

What jobs have you done other than being an artist?

I have worked in fast food, worked as a chiropractic receptionist, and along with dancing in ships I also worked cruise staff. Currently I am a gondolier at the Venetian and also teach group fitness classes.

What memorable responses have you had to your work?

I have been told I am a chameleon, disappearing into any role I do.

What would you be doing if you weren't performing?

I think I'd be writing. Still not out of the question!

Name something you love about Las Vegas, and why.

I love many of the people I've met. So many loving and caring people. Also I love that Vegas is a small town within a big town.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Don't sweat the small stuff. Let it go.

What superpower would you have and why?

I'd like to be able to transport myself instantly from place to place. I hate traffic. But...don't we all!

Any future projects?

None currently. More auditions to attend!
