Meet Mark Sinongco - Chip Tolentino in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
What is your role in this show?
I play Chip Tolentino, last year's winner of the Putnam County Spelling Bee. All he wants is to win again this year … However, puberty has some other plans for him.
What is your background in theatre?
I was first introduced to Theatre at M.E LaZerte under the instruction of Pamela Schmunk. After graduating, I moved to Victoria, BC and trained at the Canadian College of Performing Arts, receiving a Diploma in Performing Arts. In those years, some of my favourite roles include Ren (Footloose: The Musical), Reverend Hightower (Bat Boy: The Musical), and Prince Amir (The Ash Girl).
What is your favourite word to spell, and why?
Definition: A lame joke told by 3rd Graders, and apparently recent college graduates.
Sentence use: Hey man, how do you spell ICUP?
