And for the most part that’s the case here, aided by Carey’s ability to slip back and forth between guitar, piano and fiddle. But the mulit-instrumental championship goes to Greenfield, who played guitar, banjo, mandolin, autoharp and sang up a storm that would knock a possum off an Arkansas stump.

Tour is Winding Down!

I have been on tour with Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train Live– Buddy’s Big Adventure, since the first of the year! It has been a wild ride– from Colorado through to Texas, up to the Dakotas, down and across to California, up into Washington, all which way until Kentucky, and then up up up into Canada, back down into the US… whew! And now we’re resting ourselves and performing our final NY shows before taking the long drive to Florida for our final week together. We have become a family on this tour– after all, we saw the Thing? together; hugged the world’s largest pistachio; visited a number of weird old Dinosaur parks; gazed at (and drove ourselves through) lots of beautiful countryside on our epic drive across the country; had our luggages stolen in Fresno; saw Niagara Falls; took trains, planes, and automobiles; visited some of the most iconic music destinations; and even made our own puppets on our days off in hotels. We have eaten our way through many strange meals, survived many hardships, experienced many joys, slept in many hotels, and have really become a big weird family. As a puppeteer, and as the swing especially, I have had the blessing of learning how to skillfully operate (sometimes with short notice) all of the puppets on our tour– even ones I wasn’t hired to perform!

I am physically stronger than I have ever been, mentally more able to hop between characters like a little bunny, and definitely a lot more patient and focused than I was before this tour. I have learned a lot, and I have the folks at Gables Grove, Mills Entertainment, and Mungioli Theatricals, to thank for it– as well as the cast and amazing team! It’s been a heck of a ride on the Dinosaur Train… here’s to another week or so of excellence– ALL ABOARD!

Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train– Live!

DinosaurTrain

I’m currently on tour with Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train – Live! I am one of the two swings for the show, and I cover Mr. Conductor (the orange Troodon in the red hat), Mom (the tallest of the Pteranodons), King (the pink Cryolophosaurus), King’s arms (which are operated separately), and sometimes Don (the darkest green Pteranodon). So, if anyone gets sick or injured, it’s my job swoop in and play any of those parts at the drop of a hat! It’s an honor to be able to work with these amazing puppets and this incredible team!

Ring of Fire review!

Screen Shot 2014-08-21 at 5.10.27 PM

I have been having a really terrific time at Cortland Repertory Theatre’s production of Ring of Fire. The rest of the cast is incredibly talented, and I feel motivated every day to continue working to become the best musician I can be. Apparently, all of our hard work has paid off– at least, as far as Syracuse.com is concerned! Read the full review here: http://tinyurl.com/ls2g9ka

I am honored to have been mentioned individually, alongside the incredible Reanna Flemons, the only other lady in this intimate performance of some of Johnny Cash’s greatest hits.

The show will continue to run until September 13th. Visit http://www.cortlandrep.org for more information and to secure tickets. But don’t wait– we’re pretty consistently selling out!

The Johnny Cash musical will feature all six of us as not only the actors and singers, but also the full band! The show opens on August 27th, and I’m already working on music, as well as learning a couple of new instruments. Please stay tuned for more– this is going to be so much fun!

I had a LOT of fun in the role of Lilly, and I think it shows– at least, it does according to The Omni Horror Review with Mark Del Negro!

Please check out DRY SPELL!!!  –but a word of caution to this tale: though it’s not rated, I’d steer the kiddies away from this one, for the most part. ;)
