I've been involved in over a dozen shows as a rehearsal pianist, pit musician, and/or music director. Below are reels from two of the productions I music directed in Oregon, as well as a song I wrote and music directed for a children’s show.
Family / Childrens Theater
Phantom // Quincy Community Theatre, Quincy, IL
I had the privelege of coaching an incredible ensemble, playing rehearsal piano, and conducting a sixteen piece orchestra for this lush production of Yeston and Kopit’s sweeping score.
Chateau La Roach // Rosetown Playhouse, Roseville, MN
Sometimes the goal is wider than simply putting on a good show: making rehearsals fun, keeping the energy high, teaching the cast something new, and herding the kittens were all part of the job, music directing this incredibly fun children's production at Rosetown Playhouse. I co-wrote this song with my friend Rachel Teagle, a Twin Cities playwright and lyricist.
Adult Musical Theater [Warning: some explicit content]
Avenue Q // The Tower Theatre, Bend, OR
A hilarious—if irreverent—comedy at Bend's premier theater.
Rent // Cascades Theatrical Company, Bend, OR
Energy, energy, energy...that was the rallying cry in this dynamite production of Rent.
