I am so pleased to join the Concert Chorale of New York to perform the Brahms’ Requiem with the New York Philharmonic.
Jaap van Zweden conducts A German Requiem, Brahms’s moving musical statement about the human condition. On first hearing this work composer-pianist Clara Schumann wrote to Brahms, “I am completely filled with your Requiem,” and rhapsodized over its “profound seriousness, … magic and poetry.”
I am happy to announce that I will be a featured singer in the hit musical, Swing!
High energy beats and fast-paced dance moves are hallmarks of swing music, which exploded out of pre-war Harlem’s hotbed of youth culture and became a worldwide phenomenon. The genre crossed racial and cultural barriers to bring us popular dances like the Lindy Hop, the Jive, and more. SWING! celebrates this remarkable diversity to the beat of the most exhilarating songs of the period. But as this enthralling song-and-dance show makes abundantly clear, swing was never a time or place.- it has always been a state of mind.

Sarah is thrilled to reprise the role of Eliza Doolittle this fall at the Dayton Playhouse!
To celebrate their 60th anniversary, the Dayton Playhouse announces a stellar season. Fans of musicals, mystery and classic literature will be thrilled. The 2018-19 season kicks off with the musical My Fair Lady directed by Brian Sharp. When Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady opened on Broadway, it collected six Tony Awards including Best Musical. The film version took home eight Oscars including Best Picture. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s playPygmalion, My Fair Lady is the tale of a cockney flower girl transformed into a lady. The musical features some of the best-known tunes including “The Rain in Spain”, “I Could Have Danced All Night”, and “Get Me to the Church on Time”. Production dates are Sept. 14 – 30, 2018.
Since moving to Cincinnati, I have enjoyed participating in a range of theatrical projects at both professional theaters and otherwise. Community theater has been a wonderful way to get integrated into the community in the tristate area. I do so look forward playing the role of Aldonza in Man of La Mancha at Mason Community Players.
Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ seventeenth-century masterpiece Don Quixote, MAN OF LA MANCHA is one of the most successful musicals in Broadway history. Powerful, brutal, hilarious, and heartbreaking, MAN OF LA MANCHA celebrates the perseverance of a dying old man who refuses to relinquish his ideals or his passion. The celebrated score includes “The Impossible Dream,” “I, Don Quixote,” “Dulcinea,” “I Really Like Him,” “Little Bird,” and “To Each His Dulcinea.”
I am thrilled to join Cincinnati Music Theatre as Guenevere in Camelot performing at the Aronoff Center in Cincinnati.
Borrowing from the Arthurian legends, Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot is the duo’s fantastical masterpiece, which triumphed on Broadway in a legendary original production that lead to a film version, and numerous revivals in New York, London and across the globe. Its Original Broadway Cast Album topped the charts for 60 weeks, with a rich score boasting such gems as “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “I Loved You Once in Silence,” “The Lusty Month of May,” and of course, “Camelot.” An idealistic young King Arthur hopes to create a kingdom built on honor and dignity, embodied by his Knights of the Round Table. His Ideals, however are tested when his lovely queen, Guenevere, falls in love with the young Knight, Lancelot and the fate of the kingdom hangs in the balance.

I look forward to playing the role of Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls this February at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts!
Guys and Dolls
Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser; Book by Jo Swirling and Abe Burrows
Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

I am thrilled to make my debut with the Children's Theatre of Cincinnati as Mrs. Darling in Peter Pan Jr.
Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook. Peter Pan JR. is the perfect show for the child in all of us.
I will be playing the role of Kate Keller in William Gibson's THE MIRACLE WORKER at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts in Cincinnati.
Immortalized on stage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie's success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: "water". Winner of the 1960 Tony Award.
I am thrilled to be returning to The Carnegie in Covington, KY again, but this time as Marian Paroo in The Music Man!
Playing January 19 – 29, 2017
Seventy-six trombones will be marching into The Carnegie for the annual, family-friendly January production. See Professor Harold Hill take on the stubborn citizens of River City, Iowa while unexpectedly falling in love with the town’s buttoned-up librarian, Marian Paroo. With plenty of Americana and rousing up-tempo tunes, it’ll be the like the fourth of July in the middle of January!
Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, THE MUSIC MAN features such iconic songs as “Seventy- Six Trombones,” “The Wells Fargo Wagon,” “Pickalittle Talk a Little,” and “Til There Was You.” Come enjoy an American classic with the family at The Carnegie.
I will be playing Catherine Moore in the world premier of THE NIGHTS BEFORE CHRISTMAS by Tim Perrino and Steve Goers.
Filled with romance, heartbreak and mystery, The Nights Before Christmas reveals the dramatic life of Clement C. Moore and the writing of the poem he gave to the world, “A Visit from St. Nicholas”. Could such a sour-faced scholar write a trifle about a jolly elf in a red suit? Did he really pen the poem on a Christmas Eve sleigh ride? Could the rumors that he is not the author be true? But what secret prevents him from claiming it for his own?
It’s a love story, a literary mystery, an ode to Christmases gone by – wrapped up in beautiful songs like “Christmas Belongs to Her”, “Summers at Chelsea”, “Tonight, My Lullaby”, “Santa Claus is a Friend of Mine” and an inspiring musical version of “T’was the Night Before Christmas”.
THE NIGHTS BEFORE CHRISTMAS runs Dec. 1-23rd at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts in Cincinnati. For tickets click HERE or call 513-241-6550.
