About
GHOSTED

GHOSTED Wall hugging herself.jpg

I wrote this solo performance, as a way to dig deep into my own story of love, loss, shame and redemption.  Solo performers connect with others through shared experiences. this is a story about reconciliation with past ghosts, reclaiming my authentic self, and finding empowerment through healing and resiliency. This story has taken 35 plus years to tell. I believe that we all have the ability to create a powerful third act in our lives and I'm thrilled to share my story with you.

My Director/Producer, Jessica Lynn Johnson, along with her company, Soaring Solo Studios allowed me to take the steps necessary to create my latest solo performance.

As an Actor

Acting is my greatest joy.  It is my place of passion and liberation.  The great acting teacher Sanford Meisner said, “Acting is living truthfully in imaginary circumstances.”

 

I do not lose myself in the characters I play, but rather allow them to live through me.  I give them a voice.  I tell their stories.  Whether I am playing Dorothy Parker, Maria Callas, or a character from the imagination of the playwright, I look for their truth, their struggle, their humanity, and partner that with the “magic if.”  What would I do if… 

 

I was trained as a “Method” actor.  However, I prefer my mentor, Sam Schact ‘s process.  I use whatever it takes to tell the story.  My job is to lead the audience on a journey through the world of the character. 

 

Solo performance is both terrifying and liberating. GHOSTED is my third solo show, the second that I’ve written and performed. I have choosen solo performing because, I have stories of my own and I have a lot to say.

 

My mission is to bring cinematic quality performances that move and inspire audiences. With years of experience and a passion for storytelling, I'm here to deliver compelling and unforgettable performances that will stay with you long after the curtain falls.
