AUSTRIA! I've been invited to present my work with PLAA at the IUGTE (International University Global Theatre Experience) Conference. Its an exciting opportunity to broaden the range of my work in Actor Training. A great way to end the year!
The conference was wonderful on all fronts! Fantastic people, amazing workshops, beautiful setting! My Master Class on PLAA (my actor training methodology) was enthusiastically received! Looks like some international collaborations will be forthcoming!

This winter and spring I'll be directing She Loves Me at Montgomery College. At George Washington University I'll be choreographing and doing movement work on Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Alan Wade. And last but not least, I will be coaching movement and slapstick for Round House Theatre's production of Around the World in 80 Days, directed by Nick Olcott.
Much Ado About Nothing opens next week at George Washington University. Performances are February 18-21, Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 2pm. All performances are in the Bettes Theatre in the Marvin Center at 800 21st Street NW, Washington, DC.
Shipwrecked! directed by Derek Goldman at Everyman Theater in Baltimore, MD was incredibly fun to work on! Pure delight for me to be the movement coach and choreographer-so much to play with! The cast was amazing and the set was a fabulous playground!
I also performed in Alcestis in the Hope Operas in October. A very fun project written by Tom Mallan and directed by my dear friend Lynn Sharp Spears.
Little Shop of Horrors opens October 29, just in time for Halloween! The production is at George Washington University. I am the puppet and fight choreographer. For info and tickets: www.theatredance.gwu.edu or call 202.994.0995.

Go Dog Go has been remounted in a new exciting production at Adventure Theatre and runs until November 8.
I also had the immense pleasure of choreographing a fabulous production of The Rocky Horror Show at Montgomery College, directed by Roberta Gasbarre. The show has closed, but great photos are at on the Speech, Dance, and Theater Department's site. (I will also be posting them here soon).
