What was the very first show you did ever in your entire life?
I was in the Christmas Pageant for my Kindergarten.
I got to play a sugar plum fairy. I remember being so excited to wear a tutu and makeup. I didn’t have ballet slippers, but my mom bought me a beautiful pair of plum colored flats to wear on the day of the show. We didn’t really rehearse the dance sequence prior to the show and then my nerves took over and so when I supposed to move right, I moved left instead and stepped on my scene partners foot.

I played the Hawaiian volcano goddess Pele in a musical at the Vortex a few years ago. I got a dance solo while surrounded by some really good looking merpeople.

Messing up a scene in a Greek tragedy that nearly derailed the play.
