They Really Like Us! ;)

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the kickstarter campaign for Sasquatched! The Musical! We met our goal! Woo hoo!

And we keep getting more "likes" every day on the show's Facebook page. We're almost up to 4500!

That's me with Patrick John Moran as Chris the Seismologist and Pat the Park Ranger, having a "moment." ;)

It's so cool to be part of this World Premiering new musical. I love going to rehearsal every day, and I love the people I work with! They're GREAT folks!

Sasquatch Sightings in Manhattan!

Who knew Bigfoot had so many fans? Since joining "Sasquatched! The Musical," I have been delighted to discover that some of my friends love the Bigfoot legend. And I have to join them! Since I play Pat the Park Ranger, I get to join the Sasquatch on his adventures, and it's a real treat!

It's a blast being a part of such an original new musical. The show is fun, funny, and has a lot of heart. While rehearsing the final number last week, I found myself in tears. It was so moving!

I'm also enjoying the "Sasquatch Sightings" which have been happening in the city. Our Sasquatch, Arthur, has been seen at the Guggenheim and made an appearance in Time Square!

Tickets are now available for this limited run. Hope you'll come join the fun! :)

Sasquatched hits!

Rehearsals have started for "Sasquatched! The Musical" and it's very exciting. The music is really catchy, and we've all walked out of the studio, still singing along, which is a great sign! :)

I have my big number today, which'll be fun to dive into. It has a Joan Baez / Grace Slick kind of feel, which is  a blast to play with! When I was prepping for auditions, my husband and I checked out "White Rabbit," which became a fave in our house. I also dug Joan Baez's music. What talented ladies!

Tickets for "Sasquatched!" go on sale June 17th, and we're featured in!

Woo hoo!

Sasquatched! The Musical!

I'm excited to start rehearsals tomorrow for the NY Musical Theatre Festival Production of "Sasquatched! The Musical!" The music is really fun, a mix of folk and rock, and I've got an anthem in the 2nd act a la Grace Slick / Joan Baez. I play Pat the Park Ranger, a pivotal friend to the Bigfoot named Arthur. :)

Tickets are moving along, and it's a limited run, so if you want to catch the show, it's at The Pearl Theatre Company's PTC Performance Space (555 West 42nd Street)

I love NY

The city is abuzz with the Tony's, and I'm loving it! As Neil Patrick Harris sang about the kids who watch the Tony's and sing along to every Broadway musical, I flashed back to watching the Tony's from my parents' TV in the little desert town of Hemet, CA, dreaming of making it in Manhattan. Now, my husband keeps telling me, I'm doing it! :)

This Tuesday I start rehearsals for the NY Musical Theatre Festival production of "Sasquatched! the Musical." I play Pat the Park Ranger. :)

My first experience with was a few years ago in "The Tragic and Horrible Life of the Singing Nun," which ended up with me winning the award for Outstanding Individual Performance as the title character. It was so cool, and there were Tony Award winners up for the same honor as well!

As I grow in this community and see others I've worked with make their marks as well, I feel so thankful to be able to do this, to have the love and support of my husband, friends and family to keep on making strides. It is such a thrill to be making my dreams come true in this beautiful Big Apple!
