7-year-old Eastchester actress shines at the Met

By day, 7-year-old Eastchester resident Clare Cashman seems much like any other second-grader at Anne Hutchinson Elementary School.But unlike her classmates, her name's on the Playbill for the opera ?Anna Bolena,? which debuted at the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center last month.Clare started acting and modeling at the age of 4, she says. Her agent landed her the role over the summer, and after months of rehearsals, the show opened before a packed house. She plays a young Queen Elizabeth in the opera."Anna Bolena" will be broadcast live in high-definition at New Roc in New Rochelle and at the City Center movie theater in White Plains this weekend. The opera runs at the Met through February.
