Samantha Brown’s Fanathon – February 2010

I heart The Travel Channel and have always been a fan of Samantha Brown, the perky, funny host of shows like Great Hotels and Passport to Europe. Something else I heart? Walt Disney World! (I’d live there if they’d just say the word). So imagine my delight when I ran across an ad looking for fans of Samantha and of Disney World to participate in a show taping!

A Christmas Carol – December 2009

The famously classic holiday tale by Charles Dickens about the infamous Scrooge (Ebenezer, not McDuck), the workaholic evil-doer turned turkey-gifting do-gooder. But Scrooge cannot see the error of his cold, un-Christmasy ways until he gets a good ghostly intervention. Enter moi!

I Do Not Know – Summer 2009

After continuous theatre work since last August, I am “without show”, to coin my own peculiar phrase. Nothing to rehearse, nowhere to perform, no dozen songs to learn by next week. So it is back to heavy-duty auditioning and the actor’s perennial search for The Next Job.

Les Misérables – March & April 2009

Wow, wow and triple-wow! To be cast in Les Misérables is a musical actor’s dream come true. Specifically, my dream come true. Ever since I learned Actors’ Playhouse would be staging the first-ever Florida production, I wanted to be part of it. “Wanted”, however, may be too gentle a descriptive. More like “Insanely Obsessed Over” it.

Showtune – Dec 2008-Feb 2009

Eileen is starting 2009 starring in this fabulous revue celebrating the music & lyrics of Jerry Herman, the musical genius behind Broadway hits like Hello Dolly, La Cage Aux Folles, Mame and more. With one hit song after another, this popular musical is a favorite with audiences who will recognize one Broadway Anthem after another!
