This fall, my theatre company, the side project, is producing Oxy, Ohio by Steven Spencer. I'm thrilled to be working on a 2nd play by Steven whose acerbic wit is on display in his sharp dialogue and character development. The play captures the vast complexities of the opioid epidemic in America through the eyes of 4 characters. http://thesideproject.net/
In June, I participated in my first Driver's Seat Reading Series at Murphy's and Son's Irish Bistro for Route 66 Theatre: https://www.facebook.com/events/227652641370326/ Loved the cast and enjoyed the play. Thank-you to Spencer Ryan Diedrick for casting me!
At the end of May, I was thrilled to attend my 3rd APAC (Audiobook Publishers Annual Conference) in NYC. It was a whirlwind and slightly too short, but I made new friends and hopefully some professional connections!
In April, I spoke on my first panel! The Spring Fling Romance Writers Conference graciously gave the SAG-AFTRA Chicago audiobook committee a panel to discuss self-publishing audiobooks and working with professional narrators.
Also in the spring, I took a brilliant class on Script Analysis of Contemporary plays with Marti Lyons. I highly recommend it to directors, actors, and other interested parties if/when they offer it again at The Acting Studio. https://www.actingstudiochicago.com/
And always. . .Auditions, auditions. . .more auditions. . .
