Anna Uzele knows, sometimes things get turned upside down. In 2018 when she was in New York City on a school trip, she auditioned for the Broadway production of “Once on This Island.” Forty-eight hours later she was in rehearsal for her Broadway debut. In 2019 she started turning herself upside down, doing handstands to help her maintain the stamina to dance in the high and mighty heels of Catherine Parr in the Ordway’s pre-Broadway production of “SIX.” Not all of Anna’s tales are about being upside down, but what you will hear in all of them is this:  Even when life throws her off balance, Anna knows how to find her equilibrium. So tune in, listen up and let her tell you a story. This event will be co-hosted by Twin Cities actor, director and choreographer Austene Van, who is the artistic director of Yellow Tree Theatre and directed the musical “Annie” at the Ordway in 2017.
