A couple months ago, I announced that I would be returning to McLeod Summer Playhouse for the summer season.
While this is still true (!!!) and I'm so thrilled, they had a little bit of a change-up in their show line-up. Instead of doing Grease! I will now be working on one of my most beloved shows... Into the Woods. (!!!!!!!!)
And the kicker? I'll be playing a bucket-list role... The Baker's Wife. Honestly can't believe I get to tackle this incredible role! You may recall that I previously played The Stepmother with TheatreZone in Naples, FL during the 2016 season.
Endlessly grateful for the opportunity. Many thanks to Wes Drummond, Tom Kidd, and the entire MSP staff. Now, let's go into the woods to get the thing that makes it worth the journeying.
I had a killer time working with the Barry Baker: Aspiring Serial Killer crew again for Episode 4 (and some scenes from Episode 5) on a whirlwind trip to Florida.
Not to give anything away, but we got to film in a variety of locations - including our regular "Shi-Tech" office, a dimly lit restaurant, on-stage at a dinner theater, and in front of Barry's house. (Praise the weather gods for a gorgeous late afternoon of filming outside!)
Every time I get to step back into Annie's shoes, it's a joy! Well, I should rephrase that... I actually never wear shoes on set. My feet have yet to grace the screen, so why wear uncomfortable flats or heels? But, either way, playing Annie Parker is such a blast -- and this episode, I got to meet and work with some characters I haven't had the chance to share the screen with!
Which characters, you ask? You'll have to wait until it airs on Amazon Prime to see! Catch up on Episodes 1-3 here: https://www.amazon.com/Barry-Baker-Aspiring-Serial-Killer/dp/B01MTKX2X9
