March - April 2020

I'm learning drag makeup!

 

Since the Bandstand tour has been forced to go on hiatus as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, I'm back home in New Jersey for the moment. 

As a way to stay busy while stuck indoors, my friend Taryn Urban and I are are recreating makeup looks from different Drag Race queens and posting videos of the process on my YouTube channel. If you're looking for something fun to do, head over to our Quarantine Queens playlist and watch a video!

October 2019 - June 2020

It's my first national tour!

I'll be performing in the ensemble and understudying two principal roles on the 1st National Tour of Bandstand. Grateful is an understatement!

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. 

January - March 2019

I'm back on the line!

 

This is my second time performing A Chorus Line, but my first time learning Michael Bennett's original choreography. I'll also be on the stage right side of the line this time, performing the role of Mike. I couldn't be more excited!

Performances at Sierra Rep's East Sonora Theatre run February 10 - March 24 and you can get your tickets here
