July 13th -July 17th 2023 -- The Sound of Music at The Lexington Opera House

I had the thrilling opportunity to return to The Sound of Music for the third time in my career, this time playing the incomparable Baroness Elsa Schraeder at the historic The Lexington Opera House in Lexington, Kentucky.  This gorgeous, vaudevillian-era opera house was built in 1886 and was the perfect location to perform this classic musical.  I am so grateful to have gotten to step into The Baronesses' shoes and perform alongside such a star-studded cast!

May - October 2022 -- Utah Shakespeare Festival 2022 Season

I had a blast being a part of the Tony Award-Winning Utah Shakespeare Festival's 2022 Season!  I performed five shows "in rep" with this wonderful company.  I was thrilled to portrayed Sister Berthe/Frau Zeller in The Sound of Music, Ensemble in Sweeney Todd, Featured Performer in The Greenshows ("The Last Time I Saw Paris" and "Coronation Day"), and understudy Yvette and Mrs. White in Clue.  It was such an exciting experience to present these incredible productions to such receptive audiences every day and to have the wonderful opportunity to provide free, accessible theatre through The Greeenshows ("The Last Time I Saw Paris" and "Coronation Day") to children and adults outdoors on the beautiful green.  I also had the exciting opportunity of going on for my understudy track of Mrs. White in Clue!  I have so enjoyed getting to spend every day of the week performing shows that I love with such a wonderful group of people!

I am so grateful to have been able to portray Priscilla Presley and act as Dance Captain for the U.S. Professional Premiere of Elvis the Musical, written by Sean Cercone and David Abbinanti and based on a concept by Floyd Mutrux!  It was such an incredible experience to be a part of bringing a new musical to the stage and sharing this exciting story with audiences every night!  

 

A word about Elvis the Musical from Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre

        "A Professional U.S. Premiere! This official biography-musical follows the tender story of Elvis Presley in the early years of his career as he and Sam Phillips create the music that will forever change their lives. This new musical explores these pivotal moments through the perspectives of those who knew him best, spanning from his impoverished childhood in Tupelo, Mississippi to his triumphant 1968 'Comeback Special,' and his assent to be 'The King.' Elvis the Musical features over 40 Elvis hits and iconic songs including 'That’s All Right,' 'Blue Suede Shoes,' 'That’s All Right Momma,' 'Shake, Rattle, and Roll,' and 'Heartbreak Hotel.' This is where the story begins… 'Take a walk down lonely street.'"

 The Sound of Music at The Muny

I was absolutely thrilled and honored to have performed in The Sound of Music at The Muny, America's oldest and largest outdoor theatre venue located in the middle of Forest Park in St. Louis, Missouri with a grand total of 11,000 seats!  Directed by Matt Kunkel, with choreography by  Beth Crandall and music direction by Ben Whiteley, this production brought music back to the hills of Forest Park after a year of shutdown due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.   This show is very near and dear to my heart, as The Sound of Music is one of my all-time favorite musicals!  Dreams really do come true!
