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.'"
October/November 2021 -- Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde at Jobsite Theater
August 2021 -- A RETURN TO LIVE THEATRE!
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!
