Like a Virgin

As usual, it’s been too long since my last post. It’s hard to keep up with documenting your life when you’re too busy living it.

This was my first opportunity to play the lead role in a fully staged production in Kansas City! Let me tell you, I was pretty nervous stepping into a company of talented actors who (except for Damian, Hollis, and I) were reprising their original roles, however, as rehearsals progressed I started to find my Mary Sue and figure out how she fit into the crazy world around her.

After a whirlwind eleven-day rehearsal/tech process we ran for two weeks. I only wish we could have spent more time together, because one of the best aspects of being a part of this show was the company involved. Every single person in this cast and crew is someone I feel lucky to be working with for the first time, or was overjoyed to work with again, and now and I hope to work with EVERYONE in the Glitterbang company again very soon.

 J. Will Fritz, Damian Blake, R. H Wilhoit, Ellen Kirk, Jesse Ray Metcalf, Emma Carter, Briana Marxen-McCollom, Melissa Fennewald, Bonnie Griffin, Ai Vi Bui, Alisa Lynn.

So what’s up next, you ask? Pull on a sweater, order yourself a Pumpkin spice latte and saddle on up for some spooktacular storytelling, because Kansas City Horror Play Festival is back! We JUST closed submissions for ten-minute plays from local playwrights. This year I’m participating as a director alongside Matt Rapport, Jesse Ray Metcalf, and the event’s creator, Erika Baker. More news to come…
