They’re sisters who will sing their way into your soul.Meet Hayley and Tori Feinstein---two of Broadway's smallest superstars

"I love working with all the actors," Tori smiled. "It’s so much fun and they’re really nice!”

“I do it because I love it so it’s definitely something that will always be a part of me,” Hayley said.

This 14-year-old is currently starring in the hit musical Fiddler on the Roof.

“As long as you have passion and work your best you can always achieve what you want to," Hayley explained. "I think that’s something hopefully people will learn from my experience.”

She’s been a role model and inspiration for her younger sibling.

“She always sang in the stroller and I decided that’s why I wanted to do it too," Tori remembered.

An unbreakable bond since birth that’s made these two truly the best of friends.

“Someone you can always talk to, someone you can count on and lean on," Hayley described. "Someone who you know is always going to be there for you, through the good and the bad and the ups and the downs.”

That solidarity and strength were important as both went to audition after audition, like for Matilda the Musical, where Hayley was rejected twice in the final round.

"As I’ve gotten older, it’s gotten easier but initially that first time I didn’t get Matilda it was like really hard for me because I was like what did I do wrong,” she remembered.

A role 11-year-old Tori tried out for a couple years ago.

“I knew I probably wouldn’t get it after what Hayley had been through, but I thought it would  be fun to try anyway,” Tori laughed.

She ended up getting the part.

“I wasn’t really sure how she would react, I figured she would be happy for me but she might be sad inside,” Tori said.

“In the moment I didn’t really feel sad, I was actually really happy for her,” Hayley said. “It kind of felt like a part of me got it.”

Hayley and Tori having been performing for years, keeping little memories from each of their shows.

“Each hat like represents a different part of this journey that we’re taking,” Hayley said while showing us some show souvenirs.

These two are constantly trying new things, developing as not only artists but young ladies.

“I was working on a novel, I writing poetry, and I was actually working on a musical,” Hayley said of her other interests.

“I sewed these four things," Tori said while showing us some clothes she made. "I just like designing and making things."

And what makes each new adventure all the more special, they’re doing it together, even if they don’t always agree.

“We want to be roommates," Tori said. "Not roommates like houses next to each other," Hayley corrected.

You can see Hayley in Fiddle on the Roof through December 31, 2016.
