LEGALLY BLONDE National Tour
October 2022 - May 2023
I am heading on the road with the National Tour of Legally Blonde to play Vivienne Kensington! It's an absolute dream come true to be traveling all over North America doing the work that I love. I can't wait to spend the next 8 months performing it for audiences near and far. To Harvard!
This summer 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 am returning 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 has been an absolute joy. I couldn't be 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 48 Hour 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! Follow @_creativequarantine_ for more details!
BROADWAY NIGHT -- LADIES NIGHT
I performed as a part of Ladies Night at Prohibition's Broadway Night on Sunday December 15. The Broadway Night series was created by a fellow Ithaca Alum, making the experience all the more exciting! The theme was womxn 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, using the song as an opportunity to give them a voice.
CAMMY -- SHORT FILM
This November, 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 an iconic comic book/movie character in a Warner Bros. show. I have toured in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Egypt, and the Kingdom of Bahrain in my first year with the company.
ATLAS TALENT AGENCY
Since September 2018
I am so proud to be represented by Atlas Talent Agency for commercial work! Mike Milmore represents me for on-camera, and Tim Walsh represents me for voiceover.
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
Since May 2018
I am a member of the USO Show Troupe, a group of theatre professionals who perform for the military and their families. As the daughter and granddaughter of members of the Army and Navy, I'm honored to have the opportunity to give back to the servicemen and women who protect the country everyday. Working for the USO is one of my greatest joys as a performer.
From the USO website:
"Performing live annually for more than 300,000 service members and their families, the USO Show Troupe presents top of the line entertainment with performers possessing extensive Broadway, Off-Broadway, film and TV credits."
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 these four years. On to new adventures!
I played Meg March as my last hurrah at Ithaca College. I loved being a part of such a beautiful story with such beautiful people. Most of all, I'll cherish the time spent with 7 other members of my graduating class working on this project.
On March 5, 2018, the Acting and Musical Theatre seniors from IC presented their industry showcase at the Signature Theatre to great success! I was so proud to be among my greatest friends and collaborators as we made our debut into the industry!
FALLEN: A NEW MUSICAL
I was a part of the first-ever cast of Fallen: A New Musical, created by a group of my peers. I played a supporting role and understudied the female lead. There was a staged reading at Ithaca College in December 2017, with a great round of constructive feedback from the first-ever audience! Who knows where it will go from here...
I finished a sold-out run of Ithaca College's mainstage production of Wonderful Town, directed by Courtney Young. I played Helen Wade and understudied the role of Eileen Sherwood. I loved the opportunity to dig into a truly traditional musical piece that is filled with such eccentric characters and endless joy.
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!)
