My most successful year to date- career-wise (& personally)!
I had such a blast creating four new relationships with Equity theaters this year!
1.) In April/May I was a part of the inaugural season of Ocean State Theatre Company's new home in Warwick, RI - closest commute ever :) A friendly, professional company- it was a blast to explore the classic score of "King & I", directed by Amiee Turner.
2.) The early summer brought my debut at the Ivoryton Playhouse in CT where FOOTLOOSE kept us cutting loose! Fab experience with a talented cast & director, Richard Amelius.
3.) Was so thankful to cut my teeth on some Shakepeare (in the park). Debuted with Colonial Theatre in Westerly, RI as Bianca in "Taming of the Shrew". So cool to work with a troupe that reconvenes each summer!
4.) This December, I was so thankful to be brought on to "Miracle on 34th Street" at Stoneham Theatre by director, Ilyse Robbins! Ilyse had choreographed "Ave Q" at Lyric Stage Co, and it was so good to work under her strong, fun & inspiring leadership again!
My coaching & directing career found new growth!
See previous post about my direction of 140 first-third graders in "Aladdin, Kids". Brought me back to my Missoula Children's Theatre Days! Such joy!
In the spring, I worked as a Puppet Coach for Roger Williams University's production of "Avenue Q", and realized I can never get enough of the show!! In fact, I'm about to Puppet Coach for another production in Massachusetts :)
Other fun gigs included classes taught at the Tiverton Middle School, Trinity Academy for the Performing Arts, Rockwell School and summer camp at Arts Alive Barrington.
My private lesson studio continues to thrive as I helped a few more students make All-State Chorus & Orchestra on voice and trombone!
Married the man of my dreams!!
Making the commitment to Justin was a joyful and amazing event that has led to me taking more time to stop and enjoy life! My goals will still be there if I take a few hours off every now and then...
Stay tuned to find out what 2014 is shaping up to look like...
Catch me on-stage this winter (Feb/March '18) at The Lyric Stage Co. of Boston in Orlando!
