March 2024

Thesis draft is in!  My MFA thesis, tentatively titled “Who’s Going On First: The Case for Recording Our Work to Share with Swings and Understudies”, details my exploration of methods and frameworks to record the technical parts of my work as an actor in order to be able to share them;  while so much of what actors do is personal and intrinsic to their own lived experiences and identities, in a post-pandemic theatre landscape, understudies and swings are going on with more and more frequency.  In order to be able to facilitate a smooth transition between a principle cast member and someone replacing them, I advocate for more actors taking that part of their work seriously instead of simply relying on a stage manager to catch up someone else.


FEburary 2024

Touring season has been well underway!  Meadowlark Shakespeare Players have taken both our Midsummer Night’s Dream, Winter’s Tale and Henry VIII to schools near and far to our home in the Shenandoah valley!

We are also about to open Francis Beaumont’s Knight of the Burning Pestle at the Blackfriars!  Tech has been more rigorous than our other shows, but working with Constance Swain, our guest director, has been a dream.  Coming up in March:  The Witch and our MFA festival!

December 2023

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is off!  We’ve toured twice this month already, and will continue to visit area schools in the spring semester.  

We also performed Henry VIII this past term at the Blackfriars Playhouse, which was an awesome experience.  I look forward to take this small scale show on tour as well! 

Casting has also been finalized for our two shows in Spring of 2024:  in Francis Beaumont’s Knight of the Burning Pestle, I will be playing Lady Pompiona, as well as other ensemble elements as needed. And Thomas Middleton’s The Witch, I will be playing the titular witch herself, Hecate!
