When life gives you lemons,
Make a musical!
Tara is overjoyed to make her NYC debut with
PIP’S ISLAND, an imaginative + immersive theatircal experience unlike anything she’s ever done before. Think “Sleep No More” for children and all young explorerers at heart.
Tara came full circle in a near year of performances and teaching at the Walnut Street Theatre, ringing in 2019 R-E-V-O-L-T-I-N-G with their holiday production of MATILDA! She stood in justice for pigtails with Amanda Thripp and played her dream role of the Cook, butt scratch and all.
Last spring/summer at the Nut, Tara celebrated her 30th year on this planet playing a 20yr old bridesmaid bestie understudying a 40 something cougar in MAMMA MIA. Tara got to go on a number of times for Tanya and live the dancing queen dreams she never knew she had.
On September 24th, 2018, Tara married her best friend in barn with a flower crown on her head, and an off the hook live band getting all the people she loves on the dance floor.
Tara the Teacher
Tara is back in the city playing in the artistic sandbox with both pre-schoolers and professionals! She recently began subbing for the The Stage Theatre School in BK and is back to co-hosting BYOSong, a happy hour style space for actors in the biz to wine, shine, and refine their rep without pressure.
She spent 2018 as the resident choreographer of Camp Walnut at the Walnut Street Theatre (which included choreographing Elf Jr) and abroad directing musical theatre camps in China for Sunrise Art Group. She also co-created The Training Tent masterclass series to sharpen vocal acrobatics and storytelling skills with vocal technician goddess, Jenna Pastuzsek.
