The Clown at Reading Film Festival

November 3rd at 4pm

We filmed a slightly dark and very dryly humorous, but emotionally real and true gem of a feature film last year called The Clown and it is now starting to be accepted into different festivals! Our first festival screening announced has been the Reading Film Festival on November 3rd at 4pm at the Reading IMAX Theater!

Barnaby Hatchett, a lonely man whose life is a mess, is presented with a whole new set of problems when he finds himself harassed everyday as he goes in and out of work by a dark clown who lives in the parking lot of his employer's building, and that only he can see. I play an oddball character named Dottie. Click here to watch the trailer!

Reading of Let Maisy Rest in Peace at the Mile Square Theatre

September 25th, 2018 at 7pm

I will be playing Ms. Holt in Margo Hammond's new play, Let Maisy Rest in Peace for a reading at Mile Square Theatre in Hoboken, NJ. You are welcome to join us at 7pm on September 25th! At his wife’s dying request, Walter respectfully buries her in the front yard of their home in Tinder Hill, Alabama. Some folks loyally support the gravesite location while others are unsure of the “flashy” memorial that’s drawing considerable attention on Main Street. When the Town Council intervenes, Walter is torn between honoring his promise to Maisy and considering the needs of his economically distressed community.

What a fun time at The Clown screening!

January 20, 2018

We were finally able to sit down and see the fruits of our labor from this past summer at the screening of The Clown written, directed and produced by Bruce Gorman. The film now begins its journey entering the festival circuit. No telling what might happen next, but I am so proud of everyone who came together to make this such a great movie and experience! Can't wait to share it with you!

In preparation for a touring season through schools in the tri-state area, Speranza Theatre Company is presenting the first fully staged production of its new repertoire, a young adult's play called Unveiling Liberty by Charlotte Rahn-Lee and Jennie Contuzzi. The story follows the unveiling of the historic Statue of Liberty and what it represented and continues to represent to our country and around the world: as a citizen, as a woman, and as an immigrant. I will be portraying Isabelle. Our March 3rd performance at 7:30pm is FREE to the public. Otherwise, you can soon buy tickets through the Speranza website below. Hope to see you there!

'59RPM with Current Harbor at HERE Arts Center

August 24-26th at 7pm and August 27th at 2pm

Coming up later this month, I will be performing at HERE Arts Center in Current Harbor's '59RPM, directed and choreographed by Annalisa Ledson. '59RPM is a dance theater whirlwind playfully puncturing the bubble gum veneer of nostalgic American Pop madness, vividly dissecting the dark currents beneath the seemingly sugary tunes of 1959. Through intricate sound design and theatrical exposés, '59RPM explores the intimate bond between violence and civil rights. These catchy tunes may lure us into initial enjoyment, but by illuminating the darkness lingering beneath nostalgia, an unsettling and absurd story often rises to the surface.

The Three Mile Limit at Theater for the New City

March 17th - April 3rd, 2016

Coming up this spring, I will be premiering Barbara Kahn's new play, The Three Mile Limit, at Theater for the New City directed by Robert Gonzales, Jr. I will play Marge in this play about a host of characters, both real and fictional, who cross paths and stories while on board a cruise back to the States in this 1920's period piece. I am very excited because this is my first extended run of a play in New York City! For a sneak peek of pictures from rehearsals, click here.

Scott Brieden and I premiered this play at StrangeDog Theatre's Beer-Battered Play Festival.  If you missed the first run, make sure to come out and see this return evening production!

March 27 and 28, 2015

Happy to be back with StrangeDog Theatre Company for their fourth annual Beer Battered Play Festival at Tierney's Tavern Upstairs in Montclair, NJ! Last year, I worked with StrangeDog at Luna Stage for their production of Enchanted Arms. This event will be quite a fun alternative! I have the honor of portraying the kooky, oddball, Cary, in Phoebe Farber's short play called Class Reunion. Come join StrangeDog for this festival celebrating new plays in a non-traditional setting, communal story telling, live music, and bar fun with friends. 

November 12th at 7pm

Returning for a second season at Speranza Theatre Company, this new play by Merri Biechler will be playing at the Barrow Mansion in Jersey City.  ALL festival performances are FREE! In Occupation, an underground movement of young women calling themselves Civilians are strapping bombs to their backs and blowing up Government Officials. Bombs are the new black. Someone has to bury what's left of these dead girls. Someone has to stand up for the Government Officials. And someone has to tattoo the girls' identity to her foot before she makes her delivery.
