LEGALLY BLONDE National Tour
October 2022 - May 2023
For fall of 2022 and much of 2023, I was on the road with the National Tour of Legally Blonde playing Vivienne Kensington! It was the experience of a lifetime traveling all over North America doing the work that I love. We did 175 performances in 40+ states and 90+ cities!
MOB WIFE Industry Reading
I took part in the most recent reading of Michael Mott and Corey Skaggs' musical Mob Wife, playing the lead Debra. It was such a fun room full of great Italian-American actors, and we had an absolute blast reading through this amazing script! Can't wait to see where this story goes next.
In the summer of 2022, I returned to Alliance, Ohio to play Ophelia in Hamlet at Shakespeare at the Castle! My time working at SATC last year was some of the most fun I've ever had, so I was thrilled to be back working with artists I love -- not to mention playing an iconic role in an iconic play.
June & July 2022
Summer of 2022 I was in the sunny south to play the title role in Athena at Urbanite Theatre in Sarasota, FL! Athena is a high school fencer who convinces a worthy opponent, Mary Wallace, to be her training partner, while also trying to become her friend. I loved working on this play, especially since I got to learn how to fence! The whole process was a wonderful challenge and a complete joy.
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
I returned to live theatre playing Helena in Shakespeare at the Castle's A Midsummer Night's Dream! Playing this dream role on an outdoor stage at a 1900s castle was an absolute joy. I couldn't have been happier to be performing live again.
MTCA -- TEST PREP & ESSAY COACH
Since July 2021
In July, I launched with Musical Theater College Auditions (MTCA) as their SAT/ACT Test prep & college essay writing coach. I was an MTCAer myself when I applied to college, so the opportunity to join the team as a coach is a dream come true. Tutoring has been a support job for me for several years, so I'm eager to bring this work specifically to theatre-minded students! The team at MTCA is full of industry professionals that I look up to, and I'm very grateful to be among them!
I am a member of the ensemble in Creative Quarantine's production of Les Mis. The cast is recording each of their parts remotely and the team is editing it together to create a full digital production of the show! I've been so thankful to work on a beautiful piece of theatre even while sheltering in place at home in New Jersey. The final product is available as a playlist on the Creative Quarantine Youtube page as well as on TikTok!
BROADWAY NIGHT -- LADIES NIGHT
I performed as a part of Ladies Night at Prohibition's Broadway Night in December of 2019. The Broadway Night series was created by a fellow Ithaca Alum, making the experience all the more exciting! The theme was women empowerment, and I sang "King of the World" from Songs for a New World. I dedicated my performance to all the women I've encountered with my work in the Middle East.
CAMMY -- SHORT FILM
In November of 2019, I shot a short film called Cammy. I played the supporting character of Ellie, a dance student dealing with a devastating diagnosis -- and an affair. I had a great time on set for this film, led by Bill Pace and Tom Rondinella and working alongside Gretchen Hall and Lee Aaron Rosen. I also got the chance to use my tap dancing skills in the film! Cammy has been all over the festival circuit since 2020!
I grew up listening to my parents' ABBA greatest hits CD in her walkman, so working on Mamma Mia for the summer of 2019 was a dream come true! I played Ali in 83 sold-out performances at the Oregon Cabaret Theatre. Singing and dancing to some of my favorite songs and exploring gorgeous Ashland, Oregon made for an amazing summer!
Present Perfect came to New York City! In March, I appeared in a reading of Jaime Lozano's musical Present Perfect, which I workshopped with Live & In Color in September 2018. I was so happy to return to the character of Sarah, and I had the honor of working opposite Mauricio Martínez (On Your Feet) on this presentation. There were three sold-out performances at Ballet Hispánico at the end of March!
February, August, September, & October 2019
I work with a company called EventBox, which provides
licensed shows to audiences in the Middle East, Northern Africa, and Eastern Europe. EventBox has agreements with Nickelodeon, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, and more. I play Wonder Woman in a DC Justice League show. I have toured in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Egypt, and the Kingdom of Bahrain.
I spent September 2018 at the Bingham Camp in CT with theatre company Live&In Color. I workshopped the new musical, Present Perfect (Jaime Lozano and Nancy Cheser). I was the first actress to play Sarah, an ESL teacher to a classroom of adult immigrants. After a sold-out run, I'm excited to see where Present Perfect goes next!
USO SHOW TROUPE
For 5 years, I was a member of the USO Show Troupe, a group of theatre professionals who performed for the military and their families. As the daughter and granddaughter of members of the Army and Navy, I was honored to have the opportunity to give back to servicemen and women. Working for the USO was one of my greatest joys as a performer.
I am a proud alumna of Ithaca College with a BFA in Musical Theatre! I graduated Summa Cum Laude, at the top of my major, at the top of my department, and at the top of all Fine and Performing Arts students. I'm proud to have made both my professional training and my academics a priority during those four years.
I spent my 2017 summer in Holland, Michigan in three productions at Hope Summer Repertory Theatre. I played Catherine in A View from the Bridge, Shulie in Schoolhouse Rock Live!, and Ronnie Boylan/Ensemble in Annie. It was an incredible and challenging experience to work in repertory for a whole summer! (Living fifteen minutes away from the beaches of Lake Michigan was pretty great too!)
