Michelle is thrilled to be returning to the beautiful Kearney, NE for the 2018 summer season! You may remember Michelle as our pleasantly plump protagonist, Tracy Turnblad, in last year’s production of Hairspray! This summer with Crane River Theater, you can catch Michelle as Sheila in The Boys Next Door, Gloria in Madagascar out at Yanney Park, Star-to-Be in Annie, and as a performer in the annual Celebrate Broadway. She was most recently seen in the staged reading of a new musical called Letters to Eleanor with the Blixt Playlab in Lincoln, as well as the premiere production of the new Nebraska Repertory Theatre, Abigail:1702. Her favorite credits include Spokane in Puddin and the Grumble, Annie in Catherland, Dragon in Shrek the Musical, Sour Kangaroo in Suessical, Maggie in Dancing at Lughnasa, Bernadette in This Random World, and Horatio in Hamlet. Michelle is so thankful to the Kearney community for supporting their performing arts organizations, and to her friends and family for supporting her endeavors.
