Updates & Current Projects

Standard

Reader, hello. It’s been a minute since I’ve updated the old website. The first year of my Voice Studies MFA was, as they say here in the UK, full on. Very full on.

In the midst of full-time classes, I’ve taught voice at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and at East 15 Southend. Has the course changed me? Well, I now get very excited about functional models of larynxes so YOU TELL ME.  (I’ll just leave this here if you’ve been wondering what to get me for Christmas.)

Now that the second year of my MFA has commenced and I’m no longer in class full-time, some updates are in order. Here they are, in no particular order:

  • After a 10-month hiatus from narrating, I’m back in action on the mic. I’m working on the next books in several series I’ve done, as well as some very cool standalones.
  • I’m doing some dialect coaching with the delightful About Wolves Theatre Company. Their debut production, “Someone Found” is set in Texas in the 1800s and runs at the Pleasance Theatre November 10th-12th.
  • I’ve been teaching Voice for the 1st & 2nd year BA actors at the London College of Music. They are a wild bunch of beautiful fireflies – and yes, I am making them learn swaths of lyrics from Hamilton for use as articulation warm-ups. Because learning should be fun.
  • This Thursday and Friday I’m acting in a 10-minute play by the inimitable Kevin O’Malley, as part of Central’s New Writing Night. Always always good to practice what you teach.

“SWELL”

Standard

Today I started rehearsals for a production of “Swell” at The Brick’s Comic Book Theater Festival in Brooklyn.

Swell has been adapted from a graphic novel by artist Juliacks, and tells the story of a girl dealing with the loss of her sister. I’m especially excited because I get to work with Kathleen Amshoff, a friend and director who I worked with back in college, when she directed me as Mrs. Alving in a production of “Ghosts.”

We’ll be performing at The Brick, 579 Metropolitan Ave. Come check us out:

  • Thurs. June 12th, 7pm
  • Fri. June 13th, 8:30pm
  • Sat. June 14th, 10pm
  • Sun. June 15th, 3pm
