She Got a Masters!

Five years and two degrees later, Nicolette officially finished her time at Shenandoah in May, graduating with a Master of Science in Performing Arts Leadership and Management. She is so grateful for the professors, mentors, and study buddies who helped her get there, and so excited to start her multi-hyphenate future!

A Summer at LAByrinth!

Over the summer, Nicolette worked virtually at LAByrinth Theater Company, a New York- based Off-Broadway house, as an administrative intern. She assisted their annual Intensive Ensemble (on Zoom this year) by overseeing, creating, and distributing daily schedules to all students, facilitators, and staff.

"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic..."

Famous last words...

While Nicolette was excited to announce her first post-grad contract with Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre in Winchester, VA (as Sister Mary Theresa in SISTER ACT and ensemble in HELLO, DOLLY! and CINDERELLA), she remains hopeful to hit the SSMT stage in the future!

Back to Summer Camp!

Nicolette is so excited to spend the summer playin' improv games and teachin' kids! As the new Acting Instructor at Smithtown Center for the Performing Arts's Summer Theatre Intensive, she will teach acting classes and direct a culminating musical showcase with campers age 6-17. And as a former camper herself, Nicolette loves this full circle moment.

Saving Up for NYC!

Nicolette has also been taking advantage of this time to save money to move to New York in 2021: nannying two sweet boys, and teaching virtual musical theatre lessons and classes for teens and adults with special needs at The Music Academy for Special Learners!

Got that BFA, baby!

It's a Privilege to PEE!

Nicolette kicked off her junior year in the ensemble of URINETOWN at Shenandoah Conservatory! As the understudy for Pennywise, she even went on for two dress rehearsals (pictured below) while Ms. Pennywise was recovering from illness. Playing this role with no rehearsals and short notice was an absolutely life-changing experience.
