Her previous shows are The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Harvey, Fiddler on the Roof, Check Please, Annie, and You Can't Take It with You. She is grateful to play this role that she has dreamed of since she was little. Sharing this with her best friend has made it truly amazing. Her favorite memories were all the times she got to work behind the scenes with her friends. Her favorite line is “That mealy mouthed little bootlicker.” She thanks Miss K for always believing in her. She thanks her family for sacrificing their time with her and her cast members - the reason this show has been the best experience ever. She dedicates this performance to her late grandmother, Connie Staggs, who loved to sing and dance. “I know that every time I step onto that stage, she is standing there next to me, singing and dancing her heart out.”
