October through December of 2016, I had the great fortune to play the title role in a world premiere play, MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY, at Northlight Theatre; it was an incredibly rewarding experience all around. Doing this play at Northlight with such a fantastic cast, under Jessica Thebus's direction, reinforced my love for collaboration in bringing new work to life. And those little tiny curls were fun to wrangle each night. :)
Next up in January (I did double duty for a whole week!) was THE HUNDRED DRESSES at Chicago Children's Theatre! This was a fun one because I got to sing AND play instruments - piano, guitar, ukulele, and mandolin to be precise. It was also my first time performing for kids, and I'll never forget the energy and openness with which they received our anti-bullying, pro-immigrant message.
Now auditioning for next season and looking forward to one more exciting gig between now and then: more news soon!
