A lot has happened since my last post in April. I am about to have my Level 4 grad show at the PIT (Peoples Improv Theater) and have been cast in the Nicu Spoon Theater Company’s fall production of Shakespeare’s Richard III as the Duchess of York. As of today, I got called in by casting director, Michael Hothorn (Miss Congeniality/Minority Report) to audition for a supporting role an upcoming feature film with some pretty heavy hitters in terms of Hollywood talent.
I also had my graduation show for Advanced Musical Improv this week which was interesting given the fact that we made up entire shows centered around fear and infatuation. complete with full musical numbers. Next Tuesday, July 7th and the following Tuesday, July 14th we have our Level 4, Advanced Longform Improv grad shows. Then, there’s just Level 5 (Performance study) and I will officially be complete with the improvisation program at the PIT.
If you told me a year ago, that I’d be where I am today, I would not have believed you. It has afforded me opportunities to perform with and learn from some really wonderful people. I even performed in an extremely interesting sketch show last week, dramatizing famous emails from sorority girls and brides called Flip the Script. It was also fabulous practice for when I finally get Walk with Me up on its feet (pun intended) due to the fact that both of my sets in that show were solo pieces.
My research for Richard III has started early due to the complexities of Shakespeare’s language, and the fact that the play is based on the real-life event of the Wars of the Roses. Good thing I’ve always been a research fiend, it seems to be serving me well these past few months. I am excited to watch my career expand and am extremely grateful for love and support of great friends and family. Updates to my site include a new resume section, and a new downloadable resume.
Super excited for my career and for the summer. YAY 2015!!!
