Diana’s current news
The day after Thanksgiving, I am hitting the road to Sullivan, IL, to go into rehearsal for WHITE CHRISTMAS at The Little Theatre on the Square (as Martha). http://www.thelittletheatre.org/white-christmas-december-8-17/
So thrilled to be a part of the 2017 Minne Mini Film Festival! I appear in THE NOTIFICATION (Austin Anderson, Kirstie House). http://minneminifest.com/2017-festival-program

Summer stock, 2017, "Bessie the Cow," in JACK AND THE BEANSTALK at The Old Log Theatre. Too. Much. Fun.

She was an actor with, and Assistant Director of, the Murder Mystery Company in Minneapolis, and has also worked with the Mr. Mystery murder mystery troupe.
