We also work with Head Start Sites~doing story times and promoting literacy for children who typically aren't exposed to literature. This summer we are doing virtual performances for libraries.We write all our own material using folktales and fables as the base.


7. Let us know a bit about your family?
Just me and my dog. Though many of the folks I've know from the Barn are my "family"


8. Anything else you’d like to share about your life or life at the Red Barn?
I was one of the first people outside of Frankfort to work at the Barn. The first weeks were a little odd...I was the "new" girl. Several weeks in folks were looking for a place to have a party after the show...I volunteered my house in Lafayette. Folks came and that was the beginning of becoming a "Barnie".There may have been singing in lamps. I am still friends with many of the folks I worked with at the Barn and it gave me the chance to play roles I might never have played. I think it gave me a confidence to try new roles and expand my comfort zone.
