Due to life changes, I am taking a break from doing shows at this time.
Past Shows of Note
You can view my music resume to see what all I have done, but a few really stand out in my memory. (You may note some of the pictures below are not of me — this is because I took the pictures myself, during dress rehearsals.)
I played Lady Jane, and this was the largest role I’d ever undertaken. It was the best I’d ever felt about a performance. This is amazing due to the fact that I was in pain at that point due to the hiatal hernia complications I was experiencing; I started the procedures for that surgery immediately after the show ended.
I love this because I helped write the new libretto for this performance to incorporate Dracula into the plot. That was a tremendous challenge, but so much fun with the libretto team I was working with!
This was my first major role on main stage. I got to play the Fairy Queen, and loved every moment of that role. It was amazing to be able to play someone who had incredible magic — I could wave my wand around, and lightning and thunder would flash! I really had a great time with that.
The Magic Flute
This was put on by Undercroft Opera in May of 2014. While I was ensemble for this cast, I also got to put in a lot of time and effort with the creature team, creating puppets (flapping birds) and parts of costumes (foxes, cats, deer, and frogs) for the creature performers. We even created a large serpent — I came up with how to make the eyes glow! We had a lot of fun with this, and I was very happy to be a part of it.
Susannah and Norma
Both of these shows were put on by Undercroft Opera (Norma in November of 2014, and Susannah in August of 2012) and both have been honored by The American Prize. I was only ensemble for both of these productions, but I really loved being a part of them. Susannah is also where I really started to get my feet proverbially wet singing opera — I really learned a lot during that show!
