Claire is immeasurably excited to be opening her first musical at MSU, Ordinary Days, directed by Lisa Brescia. She plays Claire (it was bound to happen), and is so honored to be able to share this story.

 

Thank you to the cast and crew for such a fulfilling and joyous experience. 

Hooray for live theatre!

Claire is so excited to be starting her musical theatre training at Missouri State University, as a BFA Musical Theatre major!

Amidst a pandemic, the arts go on (safely of course:) 

Springfield here she comes!

Dear Daddy,
| Daddy Long Legs

Claire has had the wonderful opportunity to direct and star in Daddy Long Legs, a two-person musical about trust, communication, and, of course, love. She, playing Jerusha Abbott is joined onstage by lifelong friend Karson Bollinger, who plays Jervis.

The production ran January 31- February 1, 2020 at the Yorba Linda High School Forum Theater.

She had a blast and learned a LOT from this experience!

The Big Apple
| Broadway Artists Alliance 2019

Thanks to the John Raitt Awards for Youth, Claire got the opportunity of a lifetime to go to NYC for a musical theatre intensive ending in an industry showcase for various casting directors, agents, managers, and more. Throughout the week, she learned more than she ever has from people like Susan Blackwell, Bob Cline, Michael Riccardone, and Randy Graff just to name a few. The students who attended Broadway Artists Alliance were enormously talented, but even more than that, so genuinely kind and supportive of one another. Claire cannot express enough thanks to the JRAYs for her remarkable experience.

Life of Glamour
| The Drowsy Chaperone

In April of 2019, Claire got the incredible opportunity to play one of her favorite roles in one of her favorite shows: Janet Van de Graaff in "The Drowsy Chaperone!" She had such a wonderful time belting her face off with the best castmates a girl could ask for. Her stamina increased immeasurably in this show, and she wishes she was still that in shape! Thank you to the YLHS Theatre Department!
