And now, a brief interview:

Q: What do you enjoy most about being part of Stage Company?

A: Spending time with other people who share my passion.


Q: Why did you decided to join us?

A: I joined because I've always loved acting.


Q: Do you have any favorite Stage Company memories?

A: I LOVED all of 1776. It was my favorite show I've ever done; I hated to see it end.


Drinking Habits had a lot of fun moments, but I'll never forget all of the pictures falling off the wall during the infamous chase scene!


Q: What are some of the challenges of community theatre?

A: As a stage manager, organization is KEY. As an actor, keeping your nerves in check can be difficult.
