Lawyer by day/Teenager by night
I moved to the DC area three years ago from the great state of Alabama for a job with the US House of Representatives. The move was a change for me in every aspect of life, and theatre ended up taking a back seat to everything else. Last fall, I started to “feel the itch” as it were to get back on stage, and could not be happier with that decision. This will be my third production in 2012, and I don’t have any plans to slow down.
I am very excited to be playing Thea in Spring Awakening with a truly INCREDIBLE cast. I first heard the music from the show after the Broadway production took the Best Musical Tony in 2007. I fell in love with it. However, the thought of actually being in the production never crossed my mind. When I heard that Dominion Stage was holding auditions, I had a couple of emotions. My first thought was “I must try out for this.” My second thought was “I am far too old to try out for this,” as the show centers around the lives of young teenagers. As you can see, I did end up plucking up the courage to audition. The audition was packed with very talented people, and I am beyond honored to have been given the opportunity to join the cast. I am playing Thea, who is in the 14-16 year old age range. How old am I really? I will never tell.
