It’s Opening Night! Tonight, Exit 63 Productions officially opens their first production, very still and hard to see by Steve Yockey. Working on this show has been such an adventure and I couldn’t be more excited and honored to be a part of this dark, creepy, funny, supernatural show with a rockstar cast! Tonight and tomorrow are completely sold out already, so we hope you can join us at one of the 6 remaining performances. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm at the Athenaeum. Tickets can be purchased here.
“[…] And, you know, makes up for all of those stories about this place.”
“You don’t know about the, ah, I see, well just ignore the stories.”
Surprise! I was called to go on as Betsy/Agafea/Nurse/Passerby at Lifeline for the Saturday evening performance on 3/3/18! I didn’t know it was happening until about an hour before curtain, so there was no time to alert too many people. But I was lucky enough to have two friends from grad school who live in the neighborhood hustle over in time for curtain. While it’s always unfortunate to be going on because of illness, I had an absolute blast getting to perform the track.
In other exciting news, I am thrilled to announce my next project! In early May, I will be a part of Exit 63’s inaugural production very still and hard to see by Steve Yockey.
I will be playing 3 roles in this play made up of a series of vignettes. It is very Twilight-zone-esque, which should be incredibly fun to work on! We begin rehearsals on April 3rd. Tickets are already on sale and can be found here. Hope to see you in May! 🙂
Lifeline Theatre’s production of Anna Karenina opens on Monday! I will be in the audience at least once a week. Still no known U/S performances for me, but will update if that changes. I hope you’ll still come out to see the rockin’ cast in this brand new adaptation of the classic Russian novel. You can get tickets here!
I am thrilled to announce my upcoming project which begins rehearsals tomorrow. Last week, I accepted an understudy role with Lifeline Theatre‘s production of Anna Karenina. I first read Tolstoy’s novel as part of a Russian Lit class in undergrad, and actually saw a stage production of Anna Karenina at the Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh when visiting in 2005. The script that Lifeline is using is brand new, and I am incredibly excited to see how this production takes shape.
No known need for understudy performances at this time, but will update if that changes!
My current project opens next weekend, and I could not be more excited to share this with you. I am playing Darla in 20% Theatre Company’s production of TIGHT END. This play is very dear to my heart – my good friend Rachel Bykowski wrote the play during her first year in grad school at Ohio University, which also happened to be my third year. I was lucky enough to be a part of many of her original workshop readings at OU. To be a part of this fully realized production… I am so grateful. This play is relevant and important and I do hope that you will be able to come out and see the production!
Tickets are available at a discounted rate here.
Performances are Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8:00pm in the Buena Space in the Pride Arts Center (4147 N Broadway St, Chicago, IL 60613).
See you at the theatre! ❤
UPDATE! I have confirmation that I will be going on for Track 4 – Nym, Mountjoy, and Michael Williams in Babes With Blades Henry V! I am incredibly excited for this opportunity, and hope you’ll be able to come see the show. I will be going on Saturday evening, March 4th at the City Lit theater in Edgewater. See you at the theater!
I am so thrilled to announce that I will be one of two understudies for the upcoming Babes With Blades all-female production of William Shakespeare’s Henry V! I will be covering 6 tracks and around 17 characters! I have dreamt of working with the Babes ever since I learned of their existence many years ago. A theatre company of women, who fight a lot? Yes, please! I cannot express how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this company, and with this cast of marvelous women warriors. We start rehearsals with a read-thru in December, and then full force right after New Years.
The understudy performance date has been set! Savage in Limbo opened last week to rave reviews. The cast is doing amazing things on that stage, and I highly recommend you getting to the Rivendell Theatre before the run is over. But if you just want to see Team Understudy strut their stuff for our performance, simply select July 9th at 2:00pm when you’re buying tickets! We are very excited for our opportunity to play, and hope you can join us.
See you at the theatre! 🙂 http://www.thepoortheatre.org/
After a bit of a theatrical hiatus as I got settled into my new life in Chicago, I am thrilled to announce that I will be joining The Poor Theatre (http://www.thepoortheatre.org/) for their production of John Patrick Shanley’s Savage in Limbo this summer! I am the understudy for Linda, and there will be an understudy performance. Information will be posted here when I have it. I am incredibly excited to work with this group of artists, including two friends of mine from undergraduate!
I am absolutely thrilled to announce my two newest projects!
I am currently in production at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center as a part of the Diversity in Baseball exhibit there in conjunction with the All Star Game this weekend! I am playing Jean Faut – a pitcher for the South Bend Blue Socks, part of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League. She is the ONLY baseball player in history (male or female) to pitch TWO perfect games. So… she’s pretty cool. You can catch us performing at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, and maybe even 4pm all weekend long!

Also, I will begin rehearsals in mid-August for Extremities as the inaugural show in the District Series at the brand new Warsaw Federal Incline Theater here in Cincinnati. I will be playing Patricia, and I am incredibly excited. Performances for Extremities will run from September 30th thru October 18th.
Show and ticketing information can be found here.
I just finished a stint as a bartender at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival, which meant that I got to see over 20 productions in two weeks of amazing theatre. Spectacular productions all around!
Audition coming up for a local theatre… Scouting out work around Cincinnati… hopefully news to post here soon!
