Colleen McGuinness | Artist Bio
I am 9 years old and in 4th grade in Union-Endicott. I have been in 5 shows at the Endicott Performing Arts Center and got to go to New York City this year to see Broadway shows. I play the piano in the movie. I also like playing old rock-n-roll on my recorder and this year I’m learning to play the stand-up bass. What is your film about? Can you summarize in a few sentences? It’s about a girl that scares her parents and then marries a boy named Joe.
