“I’ve had the honor of working on some wonderful projects. Let me tell you about them…”
Working on “Glee” has been a blast. As an onscreen guitarist, I have the fun of learning the songs, going to set, and playing my heart out.
A riotously fun show based on the novel by Carl Reiner - script by Joseph Stein, music/lyrics by Stan Daniels, directed by Stuart Ross. I played Wanda in a special one-night celebration at the Mark Taper Forum, a reading, and now - at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts!
Under The Dome
I sang a new version of “Turn! Turn! Turn!” and recorded vocals in W.G. Snuffy Walden’s score for Season 2.
I worked with composer W.G. Snuffy Walden to write vocal parts and sing in the score for an episode of “Huge”; Working with Snuffy is always awesome and I loved adding layers of sound to the show!
This was my second time working with Christopher Young. I’m the vocalist on the score in this movie. It’s fascinating to see how his music brings the film to another level.
What great memories with great folks! I played one of the leads, Patrice, in Jason Robert Brown and Dan Elish’s show, 13. First, we had the workshop at the Kirk Douglas Theatre and then the show opened at the Mark Taper Forum.
Teen Witch The Musical
There was a musical version and corresponding CD made of the 80s movie Teen Witch. I played the lead, Louise. Working on the show was a great time and I had the pleasure of being with a fantastic bunch of people.
Akeelah And The Bee
I’ve always been infatuated with spelling and grammar, so what better fun than to be in a film entitled, Akeelah and the Bee? I was a spelling bee contender, Polly. Written and directed by Doug Atchison and with an amazing cast including Angela Bassett, Laurence Fishburne, and Keke Palmer, the result was wonderful.
Exorcism of Emily Rose
This was the first occasion on which I worked with Christopher Young.
His passion and outlook on music, particularly score, taught me a lot and singing in this film was an incredible opportunity.
One of my most special experiences, Hollywood Arms will always have a special place in my mind and in my heart. This was my introduction to theatre – and WOW – was I introduced! The play was written by Carol Burnett and her daughter Carrie Hamilton, directed by Hal Prince, and featured a stellar host of actors including Linda Lavin, Michelle Pawk (who won a Tony for her performance), and Frank Wood.
My time working on “Gilmore Girls” was fantastic. I got to perform music from Fiddler on the Roof and take part in a very fun show.
Barbie As The Princess And The Pauper
I sang the song, “I’m on My Way,” that was used as the end-title track. This movie had such heart and I always smile looking back.
Home was an early encounter with the world of film, and it was a neat thing. Watching the process of creating a film and being right in the middle of it was eye opening.
“Providence” was a great adventure. I played the pint-sized pageant queen, Shania Seacrest. I danced, I sang, I bantered! What a time!
“First Monday” marked one of my first appearances on television and it was wonderful! I played one of the main characters, Ellie, as a child and took part in a beautiful episode. The experience confirmed my belief that performing was the path for me, and I haven’t stopped since.
