I believe strongly in the power of the arts….to change people’s lives, thoughts, opinions. I believe strongly in the power of live theatre…to bring words to life, to erase prejudice, to enlighten. I believe strongly in the mission of The Provincetown Theater and its new audiences. I was a theatre nerd in high school, a theatre major in college, and attended graduate school for playwriting. I feel fortunate to be able to collaborate as an actor (and sometimes as a director), with numerous theatres on the Cape, including Cape Rep Theatre, Cotuit Center for the Arts, Eventide Theatre Company, and Cape Cod Theatre Company (HJT). My professional work includes: press and marketing for The National Trust for Historic Preservation and The National Building Museum; feature writing for newspapers and magazines; Arts Producer for PBS affiliate KCPT-TV; television engineering for ABC affiliate KAKE/KUPK TV. My volunteer service has included work for DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids in Kansas City, MO); The Kansas City Friends of Alvin Ailey; The Jazz Museum of Kansas City; The Art Docents of Los Gatos, CA; Children’s Musical Theatre of San Jose, CA; and Cape Rep Theatre. I was an Incorporating Board Member for NPR affiliate KANZ Radio and have served on the
Board of Trustees for The Kansas City Art Institute. Professional affiliations include: Gender Parity Task Force (Stage Source Boston); Dramatists Guild Associate Member; Theatre Communications Group; and the International Centre for Women Playwrights.
