As I was checking my Google alerts today a headline caught my eye! The headline reads “Could Rachel Shrader Be the Next American Girl?Vulture – New York magazine’s entertainment blog captured some of the excitement surrounding this week’s auditons for parts in the upcoming movie, Kit Kittredge, An American Girl Mystery.

On Tuesday they posted a video of some of the budding actresses sharing their audition performances. And, today they featured an interview with Rachel Shrader. Rachel is an 11-year old from Fredericksburg, VA who traveled 300 miles to be in line for those auditions. Rachel must have done a great job – as she is awaiting her fourth call back!

We are wishing Rachel all the best! Especially since she hails from our town.
