I am a senior at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign pursuing a BMA in Lyric Theatre under the direction of Nathan and Julie Gunn. With Lyric Theatre, I have had the opportunity to train in a variety of musical styles. I've performed in a number of musicals, operas, operettas and new works such as Sally Bowles in Cabaret, the Grasshopper in Janàček's The Cunning Little Vixen, and in the ensemble of Maltby and Shire's new work, Take Flight.
I spent my summer at Ozark Actors Theatre performing in the ensembles of Mary Poppins and My Fair Lady, and as Professor Willard, Mrs. Soames, and Constable Warren in Our Town for which I was awarded a Broadway World Regional Theatre Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama. While there, I acted as a teaching artist for their Broadway Beginning's Summer Camp created and directed by Taylor Louderman.
After graduation, I will be returning to Ozark Actors Theatre to play Miss Honey in Matilda. I will also be competing in the final round of the National Society of Arts and Letters Musical Theatre competition in Chicago.
