Due to ongoing concerns with the spread of COVID-19, our DePaul Graduate Showcases in New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago have been cancelled. All live performances and graduation ceremonies have been cancelled as well. Classes will take place on a digital platform Spring quarter.

If you’d like to support my class during these times, please consider the following options:

- Email T.T.S. Events for a printed Showcase program with headshots, bios, and contact information or view this digitally on The Theatre School website.

- Donate to Inspire DePaul. Originally raising money to pay for Showcase travel expenses, we are now raising funds to help students pay for non-refundable plane tickets, hotels, headshots, etc.

Thank you and stay safe!

Our exciting run of Christopher Fry's Ring Round the Moon has sadly come to an end. The British farce centers around the dramatic events that unfold during a night of music and dance. Think: hidden plots, mistaken identities, love triangles, and moral dilemmas. 

I played the 75-year-old matron of the house, Madame Desmortes. Confined to a wheelchair, I am accompanied everywhere I go by my dear friend and companion, Capulet. Bored and lonely, I orchestrate a plan to add a splash of confused excitement to the evening and, ultimately, ensure a series of happily ever afters.

This was, by far, one of the most challenging, fun, and rewarding roles I've had to date. Check out some production photos for a taste of the hilarity and revelry.
