Striking a Balance Between Performing and Family Makes ‘Sister Act’s’ Tyanna West One to Watch

Tyanna West is trading her wedding veil for a habit. Last time I saw her, she was playing Mackie Raymond’s girlfriend in the Theatre in the Park production of It Shoulda Been You. Next week, she trades in her bridesmaid dress for a habit, playing the lead role in Raleigh Little Theatre’s production of Sister Act. See what she had to say to me about family, entertaining, and the importance of balance in this latest installment of my “One to Watch” series.

Sister Act runs August 17 through September 2. For more information visit:
