Friend(s) and fan(s)! I have some fabulous news — I was recently cast as Elizabeth Benning in Conejo Players Theatre’s upcoming production of "YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN" … the ridiculously hilarious stage musical based on the legendary 1974 Mel Brooks comedy of the same name! As a die-hard Mel fan, and someone who has been quoting "Young Frankenstein" since she was born (I’m not kidding), I cannot adequately express my excitement …
One thing to note — while the show opens on Friday, July 14th, my own personal “opening night” is the following Thursday, July 20th. Due to a prior work commitment (something that’s been on the books for over a year), I unfortunately have to miss the first three performances — so our choreographer (and my lovely friend) Amie will be on as Elizabeth in my stead. But I’ll be taking the stage for all other performances — so you have four full weekends (we close August 13th) to catch the show with yours truly as Dr. Frederick Frankenstein’s “adorable madcap fiancé”!
After not treading the boards in over a year, I’m so excited to be back in rehearsals — and I’m already having a blast with my uber-talented cohorts. If you’re local to SoCal, this is a show you won’t wanna miss! For more info, click here.
Here’s to an amazing summer! <3

I apologize unreservedly for being so MIA over these last six (okay, more like nine) months. There’s been a LOT going on … case in point: I bought me a condo! Yup, I’m a homeowner now (escrow closed just before Christmas) and it’s just as insane as everyone said it’d be. But I’m super happy and feeling very adept at adulting. As David Rose recently explained on Schitt’s Creek (my current TV obsession), “Mama Oprah would be very proud.”
As far as theatre goes, I wrapped up the end of 2016 by producing a stellar 5-week skit for Conejo Players Theatre (“SIDE SHOW”); performed in a holiday fundraiser for Paw Works in Thousand Oaks; and … oh yeah, I won an award. Yours truly was given the “Outstanding Lead Performance - Female” award from the Four Star Theater Alliance in Ventura County, for my performance in Elite Theatre Company’s “I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE”! I’m quite proud. I recently performed at the awards gala, and much fun was had.
I’m not currently in a show -- which is probably good so I can continue to get used to home-ownership -- but there are some auditions coming up and I’ve got fingers ‘n’ toes crossed. And on the work front, things are as busy as ever at the House of Mouse … although my proverbial door is always open to different new possibilities. Got somethin’ writer-y or marketing-ish you’d like to chat with me about? Give a holler!
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods … xox
