What am I up to, you ask?
Although the world is on a bit of a pause, I'm so thankful to be involved in some virtual and social distanced projects! More to come.
WHAT: #ENOUGH Play Reading - American Stage Education
WHERE: Virtually, Nationwide!
WHEN: December 14, 2020 - the 8th Anniversary of Sandy Hook
I was so thrilled to participate in a national project and reading called #ENOUGH. It is a project that did a nationwide search for play submissions from students across the country. The plays all focus on gun violence, in whatever way each playwright interpreted that prompt. The finalist plays were selected to be a part of readings hosted across the country all on the same date. Amplifying young voices on such important issues was extremely eye opening and touching. I was honored to join American Stage Education for this project.
WHAT: Claire in Proof by David Auburn - American Stage's Virtual Stage
WHERE: Your Living Room!
WHEN: August 28, 2020
American Stage's virtual programming has been going on all summer long. They end their summer shorts series with the Living Room Plays, scenes from the theatre's diverse history. I am so excited to be cast in a scene from Proof, as Claire, a part that is equally challenging and exciting for me.
I'm excited to be completing an Acting and Production Apprenticeship this year at American Stage. I'm learning EVERYTHING here, from devising an original piece, to working closely with artists and staff in the rehearsal hall, to being an ASM, to building sets in the scene shop. I have had a wonderful experience so far and am excited to use my new skills moving forward.
