Long Overdue Update 2/2

Continuing the update! Before, during, and after Oliver! I worked with Drew on a new episode of the web series “Lifers.”  In this episode my character was written  out of the show since I will be moving to Indiana to begin my PhD in Theatre! We shot the final scenes on a mini golf course in the bright Florida sunshine and 95 degree heat. Whoo! Won’t be missing that in Indiana.

Next I headed out to AAP and ATHE conferences in Scottsdale, AZ. It was my first time in the desert and I had a great time. Met up with Dr. Siyuan Liu and made a bunch of great friends. Several of the panels were interesting, especially one on native performance with Haley Honeman. I presented with Janet Raskin on a panel about using theatre to teach Chinese speakers English and the production of Romeo and Juliet I directed in China in 2008. What fun!

Finally, I am finishing up my preparations to move to Bloomington, Indiana to begin the PhD this fall. It is gong to be a lot of work but also a ton of fun!



Long Overdue Update 1/2

Wow! I haven’t updated the site in a while because I have been busy with projects this summer! Lets get started:

The Aqua Saga was a great success at the Orlando Fringe Festival! We had a sold out show as well as winning Patron’s Pick for the Purple venue and the Daily City’s Audience Choice Award for the Purple Venue! It was tons of fun to work with the cast and we had an epic cast party of grilled cheese at Toasted.

Next, I was cast in a production of Oliver! produced by Starving Artist Studios. I played Oliver’s grandfather, Mr. Brownlow. It was my first time working with kids and also my first time using a mic in performance. It was a really cute show with over 30 people in the cast and a live orchestra of over 25 people!
