Wingspan: Who is your character?

Burk: “I play Miss Trunchbull. She is the old headmistress at the school.”

Wingspan: Did you research your character?

Burk: “I did. I looked through all the different versions of like the Broadway and West End and people who have played her before and I listened to and watched all the different versions of it.”

Wingspan: How do you prepare yourself to play her?

Burk: “I think something that really helps is like the makeup and costume because it’s kind of different playing an old woman when you’re just wearing normal teenage clothes v. wearing a skirt and heals. So I think that can really get me into the character better.”
