I'm directing my third show!

This year, my high school students at the First Presbyterian Church of Caldwell are putting on an hour-long cabaret titled If We Could Talk to the Animals. The show samples some of the different animal metaphors used throughout musical theatre and film in order to see what our fishy, furry, and feathered friends have to teach us about this human world we're living in. The whole event is cheeky and fun and you're bound to hear at least one song you've never heard before.

Performances are on September 22nd at 2:00 and 7:00 in the church sanctuary. Admission is $10 at the door.

I've been interviewed!


Mishap Monday is a series on my Instagram Story where theatre professionals share stories about mistakes they have made on a professional stage. I started it back in the fall and have received so much positive feedback over the past few months that I've kept it going. My college friend Kelly Gordon even decided o interview me about it!

You can find interview over on Kelly's website hereAnd if you're interested in checking out Mishap Monday, you can find that over on my Instagram page here.
