Miss Maine Field Hockey, the starting point guard on the Class C state championship basketball team ... but Brittany Veazie's extracurricular activities aren't only centered on sports.Dexter High senior Veazie recently gained the lead in the school's production of the musical "Carousel." She'll play the role of Julie Jordan, a New England mill girl who is involved in a tragic love story.
Veazie was the lead in "Oklahoma" last year and had parts in "Fiddler on the Roof" and "Annie" in past years.
"It's a lot of fun," she said. "I have a lot of fun doing it." There aren't any tryouts for the play because there aren't enough Dexter students interested so there's not a lot of competition for the roles, Veazie explained.
Her aunt, DeeDee Kililea, the school's health and chorus teacher, organizes the plays every year. She also assigns the roles. There's plenty of singing and dancing in the show. "My mom and my aunt think I [sing] well but I hate to have to listen to myself on a tape or anything," she said.
Practices started during February vacation but Veazie wasn't able to make many of them. She was a little busy helping the Tigers win an Eastern Maine basketball title that week.
Basketball teammates Sabrina Cote and Vanessa Hartford are also in the play. "I know it's busy," Veazie said. "I'm going all year with school and sports." The play will be put on at the end of March.
