Explain what shows you are in this summer: All 3! ‘Mamma Mia!’, ‘Newsies’, and ‘West Side Story’.

Tell us about your roles: I am Tanya in ‘Mamma Mia!’. She is one of Donna’s (the lead) best friends and she is known for being a gold digger and a flirt! In ‘Newsies’, I play multiple roles but mainly Hannah, the secretary of the evil Mr. Pulitzer. In ‘West Side Story’, I play Velma, Riff’s sassy girlfriend, and I also sing the song “Somewhere”.

What should audiences take away from Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre?: I think RMRT is incredibly special. I am constantly amazed that this theatre has survived for 50 years in this tiny town, and every year we gain more and more support. The arts are so important, and I hope that RMRT continues to grow and bring joy to people all over Colorado.

One interesting fact about yourself: I spent 9 months in Japan performing for Tokyo Disneyland.
