An artist in the time of COVID does what she can...
In spring of 2021, I performed in three virtual productions and one reading of a new TYA musical.
February 2021: Love, Justice, & Other Fairy Tales (Jemma Mae Beaumont) by Raven Monroe with Queen City New Play Initiative.
April 2021: Sonnets for an Old Century (Antoinette Abbamonte) by José Rivera with Riverside Theatre.
April 2021: The Secret of the Sphinx (Phillipa) by Katie Colletta and Jason Sifford with City Circle Theatre Company.
May 2021: Wild, Wonderful (Wanda/Janet) by S.P. O'Brien, as part of the Iowa New Play Festival with the University of Iowa.
I recently completed a whole school year teaching virtual acting with Nolte Academy.
I have also completed my ninth year of adjudicating for the Iowa High School Musical Theatre Awards.
I also spent 2020-2021 in a new acting role as a Simulated/Standardized Patient for the University of Iowa's Carver College of Medicine.
I was honored to receive two Arts & Culture Emergency Relief Grants from the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs in 2020 amounting to a total of $3500.
