Erika is bundle of excited and nervous energy as she joins the company of Crane River Theater this summer for her first-ever production. As a theater novice, she is eager to watch others in action and play off of their talents. She is a 1991 graduate of Kearney High School and a 1994 graduate of the University of Nebraska-Kearney. In the real world, Erika can be found playing with pretty little sparklies behind her desk at Hawthorne Jewelry. If she’s not at work, Erika can be found carting her two teenaged girls (Ella -14 & Kait -12) all over town. With a love for adventure, this production of Footloose has sent her on a new escapade! She is appreciative for the opportunity to meet and work with so many talented people… all the while reliving her youth through this great musical. The ’80s were a great time to be a kid!
