With deepest pride and greatest pleasure I announce this:
I am lucky enough to have earned the privilege to play for you the lead role of Natalie Haller / Ed in All Shook Up for Midvale Performing Arts Center! All of you who have been dying to see me play a man, your wildest dreams have just come true. Should be exciting for all of us:-) (don't get confused, this is a different company than Midvale Main Street that just finished their run of this same show)
I'm stoked. I saw the show on Broadway when it first opened. For those of you who don't know the plot, you basically have Shakespeare's Twelfth Night (or Amanda Bynes in "She's The Man") set to the tune of Elvis music...mmm...Elvis.
I love Elvis, I love the people I will be working with, I get to again pretend to be substantially younger than I am...who wouldn't love to come see me and an entire cast of people having the time of our lives?!
Mark your calendars - July 15-22!
Midvale Outdoor Stage in the Park
455 West 7500 South
Bring your blankets, chairs, and picnics!
I also just realized that I got another dream role of mine last year after auditioning for Seven Brides and working hard to earn a callback for the show - such fun dancing! Any theaters doing Seven Brides next year? Seems to be my good luck charm, although I am quite sad I keep missing the opportunity to perform with amazing theaters in that crazy show. I hope I get the chance in the future!
For those of you wondering, I get to sing these songs as solos, duets or small solos in company numbers: One Night With You, C'mon Everybody, Follow That Dream, Teddy Bear/Hound Dog, Love Me Tender, Blue Suede Shoes, Can't Help Falling in Love, A Little Less Conversation, Fools Fall in Love, and Burning Love.
