DIRECTing

I've been involved with directing in some way or another for five years. My favorite part of directing is casting. When I'm casting I get the power to see an actors potential and imagine where they would be the best fit and how they could help bring a character to life. I also love making props and costume pieces.

James and the Giant Peach

A Musical Masterpeach

Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale.  Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.

There's been a murder! Multi-millionaire Garret Hampton was found after being suffocated in a vat of glitter, in his own factory, during his New Years Ball. The question is, was it an accident, or was he pushed by his ex-partner Rose Gold? Who better to be on this case but district attorney Lisa Sullivan. All that Lisa wanted was some alone time, which is what she thought she had until her husband, Jeremy Sullivan, informs her that they will once again be taking on a court case as a team. Lisa is upset with the fact that her immature husband has taken on yet another case with her, only to find that the defense attorneys are the Sullivans mortal enemies, Sam and Nicole Osborne, who never lose a case. Through heated arguments, wacky jokes, crazy connections, and a plethora of glitter be roped into the crazy courthouse of Reton Hills Montana, where the most unlikely of people will do the most unlikely of things. And find out what happened that night during the rather flamboyant occasion.

Wonderland!

WHY WORRY WHERE THE PATH MIGHT END? WHAT MATTERS IS THE JOURNEY

This was a fun project. I co-directed with Ashley Pyle Patterson. Also on the team was Trayson Wilson, Katrina Powell, Ester Dutson, Malani Taylor, and Madeline Powell. This is a fun show by James Devita and Bill Francouer. Wonderland! is a silly adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass. It has every type of music from country to hip-hop. And it brings a lot of the character from the story to life. But also incorporates characters from other stories like Humpty Dumpty. We had a cast of 34 kids ages 8-16
