Juliette Teutsch Makes Her HCT Debut in "Number the Stars"
Updated: Oct 7, 2020
HCT welcomes Juliette Teutsch to the Kollock stage as she portrays Annemarie Johansen in Number The Stars. The 13-year-old Wilbanks Middle School student first found her love for theater as an 8-year-old with Christian Youth Theater in Lafayette, LA. In addition to her experience in children's theatre, Juliette has studied all forms of dance for most of her life. Most recently, she lived in Norway for a year and learned the Norwegian language. She found her cross-cultural experience and learning a new language to be both fun and a lot of hard work.
Regarding her current role as Annemarie, she stated, "I am so excited to play this role of a brave young girl who risks her life for her family and friends. Playing the lead role has been a challenge with so many lines to learn, but I have enjoyed every minute of this experience, and the cast is amazing."
Number the Stars is set during the German occupation of Denmark in World War II, during which Danish freedom fighters of all ages risked everything in daring, hurried attempts to rescue the entire Jewish population. In this stirring play, young Annemarie and Kirstie Johansen face soldiers, interrogations, fierce dogs, personal danger, the loss of loved ones, and their own fears as they try to help a friend, Ellen Rosen, escape to Sweden and safety. Courage, faith, ingenuity, and even their fledgling acting skills eventually win the day.
