Grace is thrilled and honored to be making her Crane River Theater debut in the winter season of 2019. Originally from Rockville, Nebraska, Grace graduated from Centura High School and is currently a freshman honors student at UNK, pursuing broadcasting and a degree in journalism. In high school, Grace earned best actress in many one act festivals and is a four-time state speech medalist in humorous prose and entertainment, becoming the C-1 2018 Humorous Prose Runner-Up and 2019 Entertainment Runner-Up. At UNK, she writes for The Antelope newspaper and continues her love for singing and theater in one act productions and the choral groups, Choraleers and Harmonix. Previous roles include Mary Girard in The Insanity of Mary Girard, Ms. Crabapple in Recess!, and Mrs. Gottlieb in Dead Man’s Cell Phone. In her free time, Grace enjoys making people laugh, playing volleyball, watching Marvel and 80’s movies, jamming to Disney music, creating artwork, and writing. She would like to thank her parents, siblings, church family, friends, UNK supporters, and high school drama coaches and judges for their love and guidance.
