going to grad school!
I was accepted into the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training in Sarasota, Florida. The Asolo Conservatory is a 3-year MFA Acting program that is associated with the Asolo Rep Theater, a LORT B theater that produces more than a dozen shows each year. Asolo Rep has three venues: The Historic Asolo Theater, where only one show is produced each year, The Mertz Theater, a 500+ seat venue that is home to the professional acting company and 3rd-year actors, and the Cook Theater, a 161-seat venue that is home to the 2nd-year actors. If you're interested in learning more about the theater and the conservatory program, please check out the link below! It's been so long since I've had the opportunity to act every day- I'm going to savor every moment.

I also participated in the National Society of Arts and Letters Musical Theater Competition via the Chautauqua Chapter and placed 2nd in New York State! I will be performing at the NSAL reception in a few weeks- very exciting.
Since getting back from Yosemite, I've had some great opportunities here in NYC. In late September and early October I performed in Improbable Stage Company's premiere of Rough Draft at The Wild Project in the east village.
I was also cast in the production Ubu Rex, the pre-absurdist play written by Alfred Jarry. The production information can be found below.
Yosemite National Park was a dream adventure. Frank Matejcek and I performed over 150 times and for more than 7000 visitors!
Currently I am performing in a show that I helped develop with Improbable Stage Company called ROUGH DRAFT. The show runs for three weekends, from mid September through early October. Tickets and times may be found here:
Received some wonderful news that I was cast as Ranger Ned in "Ranger Ned's Big Adventure", to be performed in Yosemite National Park, California! I arrive in Yosemite on May 18th and will return to NYC in mid-September. "Ranger Ned's Big Adventure" will be performing 10 shows a week through the whole summer, so please come on by: see the beauty of Yosemite and learn its history at Curry Village Amphitheater!
After returning from the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, it was time to gear up for Improbable Stage Company's reading of "Rough Draft", which was held at Alvin Ailey in early February. Improbable's "Rough Draft" will be performing a 3 week run at The Wild Project in mid-September/early October 2015.
I was also cast in The Traveling Lantern Theater Company's tour of "Peter Pan" and "The Life of Beethoven" in January and will continue to perform until late May. They will be performing in public schools and libraries around NYC, NJ and CT. The roles I'm playing on tour are Captain Hook in "Peter Pan" and Beethoven in "The Life of Beethoven".
