Where were you trained?: Masters in Music at Roosevelt University CCPA and Bachelors in Music at The University of Mississippi
Current favorite audition song or monologue to use: I've been using a Phoebe speech from As You Like It recently. There's also a song from Smash I've been using...perhaps too frequently
What skill(s) are you excited to share with the audience of Shockheaded Peter? I am excited to use my sassy-direct-address-to-the-audience skills to make everyone squirm in their seats, hopefully
Why did you want to be a part of Shockheaded Peter? I've loved every Black Button Eyes project I've been involved with and this material is just so darn juicy and disturbing, my favorites!
Current or recent show in Chicago (other than Shockheaded Peter) that you think is must-see: The Nance (Pride Films and Plays)
Some favorite musicals: Assassins and She Loves Me
Most played song in your music collection: probably I Can't Stand the Rain by Tina Turner (my queen)
Favorite or most memorable onstage role as a child/teenager: First role was my senior year in high school. I was the scarecrow in a really bizarre version of The Wizard of Oz called The Magical Land of Oz
Worst onstage mishap: I fell off the stage in an college production of She Loves Me. It was super awkward because I was playing the smooth bad boy womanizer Kodaly. Can't make that look cool.
Worst costume ever: any of the shows where I only wore a towel, there's like three of those. Now that I think about it though, they weren't really that bad. I certainly didn't get hot in them.
Worst job you ever had: retail job at Express, blah!
Craziest audition story: I nearly hit the music director in the head with my shoe as I dramatically kicked it off mid-scene. But hey, booked the gig anyway!
Role(s) you’ve been dying to play: Hedwig and Iago (now that I write that, I realize those are also two of my favorite fictional birds)
What were you afraid of as a child? Whatever was hiding under the bed. I'd do that thing where I'd attempt to jump from my bedroom door to my bed.
