It is with great gratitude that I thank the team of Near Life Experiences. We had a great run! The critics are called us "electric" and "compelling" (NoHoArtsDistrict.com), an "energetic collection" with a "wealth of talent" (Tolucan Times) - and I couldn't be more proud of the work we put on stage in such a short time. Special thanks to Susan C. Hunter (producer/playwright), Michael Eiden (producer/director), Jonathan Harrison (associate producer/SM), John Lant (executive producer), and my tremendous co-star in "A Hill Too High" Carla Valentine. The journey of bringing these original one-act plays to the stage in conjunction with Write Act Repertory and the mighty women playwrights of Los Angeles has been one to remember. This production marks my return to Write Act Rep after a five year hiatus, and what a return it has proved to be! I can't wait to get back on stage with this talented group in the future.
I'm happy to announce that I am once again working with director Michael Eiden and Write Act Repertory/LA. After a five year hiatus I'm back with one of my favorite directors and an old familiar family of artists. Award winning Write Act Repertory has recently taken up residence at The BrickHouse Theatre in the heart NoHo - and the timing couldn't be better!
This time around I am taking on the role of a distraught mother in A Hill Too High, written by Susan C. Hunter. This piece will be part of a one-act play festival entitled Near Life Experiences. I can't wait to get started!
Tonight is the closing performance of Hit Man at Write Act Repertory. I am excited to complete my farewell performance in North Hollywood at this fabulous theatre. I am honored to continue to work on new works by local artists. Shelly has truely been a role of a lifetime and I have met some wonderful new friends working on this project.
I hope that our closing performance will be filled with all the energy and excitment of opening night! Let the crime begin!
Hit Man opens this weekend as part of INTERIOR DESIGNS: Women Inventing Theatre at Write Act Repertory. With one dress rehearsal to go, I am confident that this will be an incredible night at the theatre. Feedback for Hit Man has been very positive, and I personally find the other 4 shows in the series intriguing, well-written and excellently cast.
Publicity for this show has been unfortunately pushed to the background. Therefore I am taking it upon myself to spread the word. Checkout my Facebook Event Page for complete details, or visit My Events.
Come join us this weekend through August 28th at Write Act Rep! 9 Performances Only!
I am proud to announce my second project with Write Act Repertory! I have been cast as Shelly, the sexy blonde bimbo in the new original short play Hit Man written by Bonnie Hallman. Once again, I will be working with director Michael Eiden.
I just finished my first reading of the script, a dark fast-moving comedy about a hit man, an affair and a murder. Let the crime begin!
Chili Con Carnage opens tomorrow night! This has been a very emotional journey for me, entering into the world of dark sadistic comedy. I am eager to share this production with an audience. Come down to Write Act Repertory and join us for tomorrow night’s festivities and a meet and greet with the actors after the show!
I just returned from my first rehearsal of Chili Con Carnage at Write Act Repertory. I was very pleased to see Michael Eiden, my director. He brings such a wonderful energy to the space and I feel completely safe in his hands.
We were also very fortunate to have the playwright at the rehearsal, Ann Gibbs, who is an experienced television writer. Ann was eager to answer our questions and give us some valuable insights. She also presented us with 10 pages of rewrites which dramatically change my character’s development and the feel of the piece.
I am looking forward to receiving the final script this week, which I hope with remain at least somewhat intact since we have very few rehearsals left. I am continuing to work on my dialect and character development, but have postponed any further memorization until I receive the next set of rewrites.
I am pleased to announce that I have been cast in a short play called Chili Con Carnage at Write Act Repertory. I am reuniting with director Michael Eiden after being selected as 1 or 4 actors playing 19 love-struck characters in his WCT production of Almost, Maine last year.
In Chili Con Carnage, I will be playing RickiJean, a young woman who lives in a run down cabin west of Big Cabin, Oklahoma, who supports herself by selling questionably made chili to the local Black Cat Tavern. I just finished my first read of the script and I am truly excited to dive into this project head first!
So, keep your eyes and ears open! More information about this project is COMING SOON!
