UPCOMING: Camp Rolling Hills - On Tour Company - Calhoun High School

Camp Rolling Hills the Musical will be produced by the On Tour Company at Calhoun High School in Merrick, NY! I'm particularly jazzed 'n' honored since Calhoun is the high school I went to and loved. Being a part of the On Tour Company - actor, scribe, head of props, head of media, and eventually president - changed my life. It's what got me writing and acting and gave me the confidence to pursue a career as a theatre maker. The production will be in May and I'll be involved - meeting with the Drama and English classes as well as signing books. I seriously can't wait. :)

PINK! production at Second Stage, Wesleyan University

My full-length play PINK! was produced by Second Stage at Wesleyan University, February 21 - 23. Reviewed in the Wesleyan Argus, "'Pink!,' written by Stacy Davidowitz and directed by Annie Ning ’20 this past weekend, was simultaneously one of the best and one of the most difficult to watch shows that Second Stage has put on this year. The play takes place at a summer camp that is implied to be wealthy, and examines the ways in which female socialization can lead to experiences of girlhood that are brutal, complex, and at times, darkly funny."
