Raise Your Voice, Viola Swamp


The title of this post sums up my life for the past 3 months. I've been raising my voice since mid-April, appearing in Sister Act, first at the Riverside Theatre in Vero Beach, Florida and now at the Walnut St. Theatre in Philadelphia.

Check out the Walnut production:

At the same time, I directed Miss Nelson Has A Field Day for the Kids' Series, also at Walnut. I have performed Miss Nelson/Viola Swamp three times previously at the Nut, but this was my first time directing. Collaborating with a fine production team and cast, the show was a big hit. We are all particularly proud that this production was chosen to be the first sensory-friendly performance in the city of Philadelphia. There was no doubt in my mind that art has the power to transform lives as I watched kids on the autism spectrum engage in a performance designed specifically for them last Wednesday morning.

I'll be in Sister Act through July 17. I've got some vacation planned for September, but there's already a cabaret commitment for January (January 14, 2017 to be specific, back with our fun friends out at the Darlington Arts Center). Who knows what other opportunities are lurking out there?!?!

See you soon!
