If you happened to see her portray Sally Brown in ‘You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown’, then you known Victoria LaBaume has something special about her.
Normally, Tori likes to hang out and go driving with her friends and spend quality time with her family, having fun.
“I spend the rest of my time sleeping or singing as loud as I can in my bathroom,” Tori said. “What really got me into singing was simply hearing a song on the radio and singing along.”
After she played ‘Amy’ in ‘Little Women’ at Hidden Garden, LaBaume was bitten by the acting bug.
“I really love musicals because it is a chance to do what I love,” Tori told us. “It’s a chance to be myself, but in a different perspective.”
LaBaume went onto star as the Waitress/Gambler in ‘Guys and Dolls’, Logainne “Schwartzy” Schwartzandgrubenierre in ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’ and most recently, Sally Brown in ‘You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown’.
With the 2022 musical in the books, LaBaume began to look for another outlet for her talent. On April 24th, Tori will be performing at Danville Area Community College at 6:00 p.m. for their ‘Vocal Music Recital’.
Though she doesn’t come from a musical family, LaBaume plans to sing/act as a hobby. In fact, she has been working with vocal coach, Kelly Holden, who is hosting the recital that will feature DACC vocal students and private students from her studio, ‘Kelly’s Voice Studio’.
“Kelly is the one that suggested I do this, so I really owe this to her,” Tori said. LaBaume will be performing ‘Pulled’ from The Addams Family and ‘One Perfect Moment’ from Bring it On.
“My vocal coach and I discussed it and these were the songs that fit me best and that show what my voice is capable of.”
The program will consist of musical theatre numbers, but will have a few numbers representing other genres. Performers from DLO and Red Mask Theatre will also be performing.
The newly renovated one hundred and fifty seat Alice Marie Jacobs Fine Arts Hall on the campus of DACC will be the place to be on April 24th.
Mark you calendars and be sure to come out and support Chrisman’s Victoria LaBaume as she takes the stage.
“All around, musicals and singing are what I really love to do with any spare time that I may have!”
