Before becoming a princess for Disney, Carli made her stage debut in Fright Town 2013. This is a Halloween production put on by Portland hipsters turned spooksters about this time every year. When it comes to zombies, Portland does it right.
Just last September during the Portland Film Festival over 1500 zombies gathered in downtown Portland to break a world record. Officials from the Guinness Book were there to count zombies. Many of these zombies were discovered and went on to act in Fright Town 2015. Seeing as Carli was in Florida and couldn’t perform this year she was not in attendance. Turns out she would have made a difference in the world record. Portland was one zombie shy(unofficially) of the record set by Minneapolis in 2014.
Nonetheless, Carli enjoyed her participation in Fright Town. Her elder zombie supervisor’s feedback of Carli’s performance: “We have a problem. You’re spooky, too spooky. Keep it up.”
Even though she was made into and acted as the perfect “spooky zombie“, to us she will always be our little princess.
