My mother once said, “Find what you love to do, and then find a way to make money doing it.” I do believe I have found that something. For the last seven years, there has been no question of what I want to be when I grow up- “Famous.” I have been performing musical numbers since I began playing the violin at the age of four. When I was in elementary school I added private piano lessons, Mesa State College youth orchestra, and youth Music Theater to my performance pursuits. In middle school I played clarinet and drums in the school band, joined a bluegrass group, and entered fiddling and piano competitions. My instrumental music was ultimately edged out, however, after I started private voice lessons and high school choir. By the end of my freshman year, I knew Music Theater was my true love. Although it is a time consuming activity, I find I am the happiest when there is at least one musical production in the works. I enjoy the entire process from the auditions to the final curtain call; therefore, my primary goal over the course of my existence is to be on stage as much as possible, in more challenging roles and productions.

Although I have been active in a variety of school activities and programs, Music Theater has been my life. I have been in thirteen professional productions, three high school productions, and ten youth productions, to date, totaling over 250 performances! During the last seventeen months, I have been in ten shows back to back. Rarely has there been a week when I was not performing, rehearsing, or both simultaneously.

My favorite shows? I enjoy the challenge of six to seven performances a week, Adrenaline can get you through a weekend, but you really need to develop your character to be able to bring it back to the stage every night for nine weeks. My favorite role would have to be Luisa in Fantasticks. I wish I could still be performing that every week with James Werner (director/voice teacher) and cast. My most challenging performance would be Bianca in Kiss Me Kate. I had four hours to learn all the lines, blocking, and three solos for this lead part before performing to a full house as the understudy.

The intense feeling I get when preparing for any show, then stepping out on stage, absorbing the bright lights, and connecting with an audience cannot be explained. Perhaps it can be compared to a spelunker exploring a new cave, or an author finding a new idea for their next book; however, unlike these professions where this feeling comes very sporadically, when in a show I get to experience this feeling six times a week, if not more. I can only hope to maintain this passion and become a life-long-performer.

The big question is, now that I have found “that something” and know what I want to do with my future, how do I make money? Currently, I am a BM classical vocal performance major. The University of Denver and the Lamont School of Music has given me a very generous scholarship to be a part of the program, and I could not be happier. However, in addition to challenging and improving my vocal, acting, and dancing skills, I would like to acquire a business management background. My ultimate goal is to head to Broadway, and I recognize the need for a “day job” (beyond waitressing) to support my theatrical desires. It may sound like a flaky dream to some, but by balancing my theater experience with a solid business background, I believe I can acquire the skills that will prepare me for a successful life in New York.

In my “dream future,” I would be a business administrator of a corporation by day, working my way towards a lead role in a Broadway production by night. With both of these careers underway, I plan on living in a reasonably sized “walk-up” apartment right outside the heart of Manhattan. Before long, a husband and two children enter the picture, but not until I am extremely secure with myself, both financially and emotionally and am ready to dedicate all my time and effort to my family. Eventually, when the appropriate time came, I would continue performing, but still leave enough room in my schedule to successfully manage the household.

Growing up in a loving and stable home has helped me understand how important it is for me to create opportunities for my children. Without the help of my parents, I would not have such a crystal-clear picture of what I want in my future, and I would want to open the same doors for anyone I bring into this world. joozone.com
Obviously, I expect a lot of my future and realize the need for more than a vocal performance degree to fulfill (pay for) all my dreams. Not to say that I am not learning “practical” things through the Lamont School of Music- in fact I am absorbing a great deal of valuable information even outside vocal and performance technique (i.e. how to control an unpredictable life as a musician)- I just value other aspects of education as well, and I am sure large corporations do too. For instance, in an interview situation I might have tremendous people skills and make a wonderful first impression, but if I am completely oblivious to a Data Management System or any specific technology to the business, what good am I to hire? I have seriously considered the limitations that come from a one-sided education, and plan on eventually undertaking a business major.
