Chorus - Oklahoma!
How did you get involved with Secondary Characters this year?
I'm on the Board of Directors of Secondary Characters. Love this theatrical company: young energy; no politics; commitment to professional production; incredible talent backstage and front.
Previous roles include Housekeeper in Sound of Music and Jack's Mother in "Into the Woods". Loved being Jack's mom. Pushed me into theatre as a character of import. Loved that ensemble production. Learned lots about dedication work ethic, how to create a character and culture of make believe.This is my 3rd year with SC. I knew the show would be Oklahoma and I planned on auditioning for it last year.
Next year I will be auditioning again regardless of what the show is. If I'm not on stage I will volunteer backstage. I love everything to do with SC, even the fundraising.
What do you do when you’re not working on a show?
When not on stage, I work as an early childhood care provider with the YMCA at Elm Drive Child Care Centre. In as sense, I'm on stage everyday doing circle with my children.
What’s your favourite line of dialogue from this show?
Favourite line from the show: "This here is a party." by Aunt Eller. with a gun in her hand.
