Goodbye 2013 - Hello New Year!
I must say that 2013 has been a struggle both personally and professionally. I am not sad to say goodbye. However, I am also reminded today of the many blessing 2013. I started the year with 2 Shakespeare classics: Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet. And I finished strong with 2 rumpus comedies: Americana and Bedroom Farce.
Today I am pleased to announce The Examiner acknowledge my work as a Best Supporting Actress in Americana at STAGEStheatre in "Best Orange County Theatre of 2013". It pleases me greatly to see STAGEStheatre and myself acknowledged beside the likes of acclaimed OC Theatre from SCR.
In addition to this great piece of news, Eric Marchese with the The OC Register highlighted Bedroom Farce one of the "Top 10 Shows of 2013"! (See picture - Left).
So thank you, 2013 - For the good and the bad. May I learn, grow, create, and prosper in 2014!

Earlier this year I was involved in a truly inspired production of Christopher Marlowe’s Edward II, adapted and directed by the talented Darcy Hogan. I always speak about this show in fondness because it was not only a satisfying experience as an artist, but I also made some life-long friends on the journey. I am so thankful to have played Margaret, and that Darcy provided me with the opportunity to originate a role which she so lovingly created.
I am proud to announce that Darcy’s adaptation has been nominated by Broadwayworld.com for Best New Work/New Adaptation. Please help support the Theatre Out family by voting today.
There are many great productions and categories on the ballot. I hope you can take a few minutes to vote for all of the wonderful artists – but if time is limited, just skip to question #17 and vote Edward II!

Theatre Out’s production of BRIEFS: A Festival of Short Plays closed this weekend. Our closing matinee performance was sold out, so I watched my directing piece from the booth. The cast really pulled out all the stops today – ending this high energy show with a bang.
As part of the audience experience we asked our patrons to vote for their favorite play. The playwright will receive a special recognition from Theatre Out. The awards went to:
The Best of the Fest - Audience Favorite was Attack of the Dorothies by J. E. Phelan
The Best of the Fest - Producer's Choice was Shiny Pair of Complications by J. Stephen Brantley
Congratulations to all on a wonderful performance! I sincerely hope that Theatre Out will continue this tradition with another short play festival in 2011. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
I just returned from Whittier Community Theatre’s 27th Annual Awards of Excellence presented at the Whittier Center Theatre.
I was nominated for best supporting actress for my performance in Almost, Maine. I am honored to have shared the category with such accomplished actresses. My cast-mate, Jennie Silva-Villa received an award for her role in the same production. I cheered and clapped like a proud mother.
In addition to the award ceremony, we also celebrated with a Kick-Off Party for WCT’s 89th Season! We previewed scenes from the upcoming season: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, 12 Angry Jurors , Quilters, and Arsenic and Old Lace. I think I need to put in a word to include some Shakespeare in their 90th Season!
