International Tour Debut
I am ecstatic to be making my International Tour debut! I will be joining the ensemble of the International Tour of The Wizard of Oz as well as understudying the Scarecrow. Seeing the movie as a kid was one of the things that inspired my love for performing, so my inner child is very excited to be on this journey to Oz. I cannot wait to follow the yellow brick road and explore the world while doing it. For information about the tour visit The Wizard of Oz Tour website and maybe I'll see you over the rainbow. First stop: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia!

It Was the Music of Something Beginning...
Next up I will be performing in the ensemble in a new workshop of Ahrens and Flaherty's Ragtime. This workshop is a follow up to the site specific concert, Ragtime on Ellis Island. The creative team is using this to workshop new ideas in preparation to produce a fully staged site specific production of Ragtime on Ellis Island. I have wanted to work on this show for years and I cannot wait to delve into this extremely timely and relevant show.

NOW EXTENDED THROUGH JANUARY 6TH BY POPULAR DEMAND!
While in rehearsals for Peter Pan with Prather Theatre Group I was asked to be the Peter Pan understudy and I recently got the opportunity to go on as Peter. I have always cherished the character of Peter Pan and I am over the moon that I got a chance to bring this beloved character to life for one night. It truly was a dream come true and I hope to someday revisit this beautiful story. I can't stay in Neverland forever, but I am excited for the prospect of the new experiences to come. "To live would be an awfully big adventure."
