NOT HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
And that is more than okay! I spent the holiday season just north of the city in the ensemble of "A Christmas Carol" over at White Plains Performing Arts Center. It was definitely difficult navigating every new day with the surge of COVID cases in NYC, but the whole team came together and we were able to finish our run. It felt so great to be dancing onstage again, and a huge shoutout to #swingnation always!
A FALL IN MASSACHUSETTES
My first show back coming back from quarantine just so happened to also be one of my favorites: The Last 5 Years at the New Bedford Festival Theatre. I felt so honored to revisit this show and Cathy post-graduating. Entering back into the audition world definitely has some of those "Climbing Uphill" moments, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I also got to stretch one of my favorite theatrical muscles - understudying! I absolutely love the organizational skills and preparedness need in swinging and understudying, and jump at any chance to to perfect my process.
GRADUATING 497 DAYS LATE
A day I never thought would come: Graduation Day! Being a 2020 grad was not ideal, but Syracuse made sure we still got the whole ceremony, the festivities, and to walk across the stage. It may have come 16 months later than expected, but it was totally worth the wait to reunite with my class and visit the old stomping grounds one more time.
