Delta’s current news

During the past pandemic year, we adapted Rich Reeder's play "Broad Stroke" to a video for the Fringe Festival's Digital Hub. I've been also been doing scene & monologue work remotely with Raye Birk (founder of Actors Workout at the Guthrie) and crisis intervention trainings via Zoom. Here's a link to my essay for MN Playlist in May 2020:


I've performed in more than 50 productions in the Twin Cities metro area, and toured throughout Minnesota with My Antonia (Illusion Theater) and Help Wanted (Teatro del Pueblo). I was a company member with Theatre Unbound for 10 years (2004-14) and appeared in a dozen productions, including world premieres of Silkworms, The Good Fight, Frankenstein Incarnate: The Passions of Mary Shelley and Women! Live on Stage!
