A dreamer of dreams

CFA alum travels to the Wonka Chocolate Factory

Anything is “Wildly Possible” when you become a UK Wildcat. Whether that is becoming an entrepreneur, working for an international business, pursuing a graduate degree, or portraying the role of Mrs. Gloop in Roald Dahl’s new musical, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and its National Tour!

Audrey Belle Adams (BM '19), originally from Louisville, Ky., was a 2015 All-Tech Music Scholar at UK. Throughout her time in the Opera Theatre program, she was seen on stage during It’s a Grand Night for Singing, Ragtime, The Barber of Seville, The Old Maid and the Thief, and Amahl and the Night Visitors. Audrey also performed regularly with the Lexington Theatre Company during their production of Legally Blonde, Mary Poppins, and Concert with the Stars.

I talk about UK and Lexington every day to colleagues in New York, and I get prouder sharing my experiences and opportunities I had at UK every single day. The attention and appreciation of the arts is very much alive and well in Lexington and I could not be more grateful that I learned and performed with some of the greatest while in Kentucky. The UK Opera Theatre and The Lexington Theatre Company were fundamental in my undergraduate training, and are the reason why I have the confidence to be living up in New York working, and “pounding the pavement”. I love my Kentucky home, and I am thankful for the arts community that surrounds it.
