I am excited to be a part of this unique opportunity with NCT, a brand new musical and World Premiere Production of "The Most miserable Christmas Tree"! I will be playing the role of Virginia Pine, a student who befriends the main character Douglas Fir. I truly can’t wait to jump into rehearsals with such an exceptionally talented group of people.
Some great press on our show!
Great hair days: ‘Hairspray’ show says ‘Welcome to the ’60s!’: http://www.brooklynpaper.com/stories/39/41/24-hairspray-bay-ridge-2016-10-07-bk.html
“Hairspray” Shines in Bay Ridge":
Excited to be performing in my first production with Ridge Chorale! Hairspray is opening in ONE WEEK!!! We are having way too much fun on stage and I adore all the people I have met in this cast. It is truly special.
The day is finally here!! The one where I write my friends and family to tell you that tickets are available to the show I am starring in, Annie Get Your Gun!
Even as I write these words, I still can't believe I will be playing this part in just one week. It is truly a bucket list role that's been given to some of my idols. Ethel Merman. Mary Martin. Judy Garland (before they gave it to Betty Hutton). Bernadette Peters. To think that 9 months ago I hadn't done a musical in almost 10 years! Wow.
Our director Drew Franklin is incredibly talented and so professional to work with (our lives have crossed paths through my old job working at Manhattan Movement and Arts Center!) and Paolo Perez, our musical director, who I previously worked with in South Pacific, has been so helpful getting me ready for the 13 gorgeous Irving Berlin songs I will be singing! As prepared as I may be, I am still TERRIFIED at the thought of captivating an audience for that long!!
So, it would make me feel a whole lot better if I saw your smiling faces =)
Although NCT may be a local BK theater company, this is a huge leap for me! And I would love nothing more than to share my voice and love of theater with you all. NOTHING makes me happier than when I am on a stage. And NOTHING makes me happier than when I see people I care about afterwards.
See the flyer attached. To see show dates and to purchase tickets click here, and let me know which night you will be coming.
Can't wait to see you there!
All my love, Jen
Woke up this morning with biggest smile on my face. Had my first rehearsal yesterday and excited to be playing ANNIE in NCT's Annie Get Your Gun!!! I'm so grateful for this opportunity and can't wait to share it with you all this June.
