Pictures and thoughts from selected works…
I had a blast playing the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz (Rosebud Theatre: Summer, 2015). When you don’t have to deal with the guilt or consequences, being mean is fun! I also played the trumpet whenever I was off stage, so it was a very busy show for me.

In February of 2015, I participated in Urban Curvz‘s: Girls Gone Wilde! cabaret with Calgarian actor Lara Schmitz. We created a movement/spoken word piece called Spliced, that was inspired by the works of Amanda Palmer and Margaret Atwood.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Rosebud Theatre: Christmas, 2014) was a very exciting show for me. I had to learn to accompany a show on my trumpet (an instrument I hadn’t played regularly since 2007), I got to sing and dance when I wasn’t playing the trumpet, and I got a sword. Plus, let’s be honest, I looked super cool.
Bitches & Money: 1878 with Northern Light Theatre (November 2013) was my first show after graduating from Rosebud School of the Arts. It was thrilling to work with new people in a new space, on a show that was funny and fast-paced and would never have been done in Rosebud. I got to shoot somebody!
Someplace (February 2013) was the show I wrote, produced and acted in for my final project. I had an incredible team working with me and it turned out better than I ever could have imagined. Here are my thoughts from the time: Producer’s Notes.
The Gifts of the Magi was the Rosebud Theatre 2011 Christmas production and it remains one my favourites. It was my first ever musical and I long to sing and dance like that again someday.
