During the interview segment, the Oakland, California engineering manager discussed her love of theater, particularly Shakespeare.
“I have been (an actor) from childhood up through about six or seven years ago,” she said. “I got into Shakespeare as a kid. So, out of his plays, I’ve done 12 of them at one time or another, and there have been some repeats in there as well.”
Schneider grew up in Dayton, graduating from Chaminade-Julienne High School. She was also active in Drama Club and appeared in both plays and musicals, particularly “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Snoopy.” She also appeared in the Dayton Playhouse productions of “Mame,” “Oliver!” and “Scrooge.”
Competing since Nov. 17, Schneider has a two-week break due to the “Jeopardy” Professors Tournament. She’ll be back in action Dec. 20.
“Jeopardy” airs weeknights at 7:30 on WDTN Channel 2.
