Karis Assam (Veruca Salt) is fourteen years old and has been singing and dancing since she was eight. This will be Karis’s eight musical performance on The Henegar stage; she’s played such roles as “Little girl Claire” in the Witches of Eastwick, “Tessie” in Annie, and an ensemble member in the recent production of The Wiz. Karis’s repertoire also includes performances at the Cocoa Village Playhouse, The Orlando Repertory Theatre and Juilliard’s Summer Performing Arts program. Karis is honored to be given the opportunity to portray the feisty, spoiled, Veruca Salt although she is the complete opposite of her character in real life. Karis thanks her theatre family and her besties for keeping her sane, her mom, dad and brother for reading lines, late pick-ups and their unconditional love and support.
