Peter and the Starcatcher

Peter and the Starcatcher is a wild story involving pirates, mermaids, an alligator and so much more. Bringing this musical to life at Harding took many hands…and involved many roles. In this production, I served as the music director, sound designer and costumer.

A Funny Thing Happened…

My first collaboration with Lakeshore Players in White Bear Lake and a terrifying one. Their Music Director dropped the production two weeks in and I was handed a Sondheim score and asked to learn it over the course of a weekend! To date, this is the funniest show I've ever participated in.

Rock and Roll Revival XI

Lovingly known as "The Show That Ate Northfield", RRR is an every other year extravaganza at Northfield High School where casts of over 100 sing, dance, act to rock & roll tunes. Although I'd worked with singers in a small capacity two years ago, in 2017 I was hired on as a vocal coach where I was tasked with helping the soloists find a balance between rock and roll belting and healthy phonation.

The Little Mermaid

A beloved classic, The Little Mermaid is a staple of community and youth theaters in Minnesota. For this production, I got to work with Young Artists Initiative, a local youth theater based in St. Paul, MN. This performance of the Little Mermaid took place at the Wellstone Center and was a terrific way of introducing young kids to musical theater.

Big Fish

Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed Columbia Pictures film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Big Fish served as my senior capstone performance. The production featured some innovative tech elements and was featured at USITT for the tech and design elements involved.

In the Heights

Out of all the productions I've done, this was the one nearest and dearest to my heart. This was my first foray into music directing and where I fell in love with musical theater as an art form. In The Heights was a powerful experience as it was the first time I'd seen an immigrant story (similar to mine!) onstage.
