It’s been awhile… So what have I been up to you ask?
Still improvising with Nashville Improv Company… In the last few months, I’ve had the pleasure of performing in two of regular short-form schedule shows, two long-form experimental shows (which included, among other things, a beautiful Harold from a guest monologue opening, a D&D themed piece that incorporated audience participation throughout, & what NIC calls a Revolver, which is akin to a La Ronde), and two corporate events. Our next show is Saturday (4/19) at 7pm, so come out!
I just completed a three week run of a show called ‘It’s Murder in the Wings!’ with the Brentwood Towne Centre Theatre, directed by Jim Himelrick. It was a broad comedy farce of a murder mystery in which I played an undercover NYPD cop who was posing as a southern belle named Bobby June. Very fun people in the cast & I got to use two ridiculous accents in one show, so good times 🙂
I’ve also been taking Meisner technique classes with Vali Forrister at The Actor’s Bridge, which has been fantastic. I really lucked out on fantastic classmates – my scene partners have been a pleasure to work with – and Vali is inspiring. Studying a formal technique like Meisner is something that has always scared me a little, but it has been a relief & very productive thus far – I feel like I’m in good hands.
Last but not least, I just started rehearsals for a production of ‘A Bad Year for Tomatoes’ at Chaffin’s Barn Dinner Theatre, directed by Martha Wilkinson. I will be playing Willa, a woman who fancies herself a witch. So that will be fun! This will be my first show with Chaffin’s.
