Traverse City resident Sage Alicia DeAgro-Roupp has landed a spot on “A Prairie Home Companion” this summer. Sage is a student at Interlochen Arts Academy. She’s 15-years old. She became intrigued by opera when she saw a live Met broadcast of “Hansel and Gretel” at Traverse City’s State Theatre. She was 10 years old.
Sage says, "After I saw it, I was just so intrigued and just amazed by it, the whole thing. It was an overnight thing and I just decided, 'I want to do that.'"
Sage will appear on “A Prairie Home Companion” when the show visits Interlochen on July 7th.
