HANNAH'S HAPPENINGS (MORE OF THEM!)
This spring I got to be part of one of my favorite musicals playing Helen Bechdel in Fun Home for my last show at IU. I also got to graphic design our poster (pictured above!).
This past March, the IUMT Class of 2023 had our New York City showcase! Click here to watch our full virtual showcase!
I was thrilled to be chosen as one of the 2023 Emerging Talent Award recipients for the Kurt Weill Foundation's Lotte Lenya Competition. I received a $750 prize for my performance program including one Kurt Weill selection, a pre-1968 musical theatre piece, a post-1968 musical theatre piece, and an opera/operetta selection.

NEXTGEN TOP 10
This past February, I got to perform at Lincoln Center as part of the American Pops Orchestra's NextGen national vocal competition! It was an amazing weekend getting to know and perform with the other finalists.
SENIOR CAPSTONE DIRECTING PROJECT
To finish off my senior year I directed Sweeney Todd, my first full scale musical as a director, for my senior capstone project at IU. I reimagined the story with a cast of entirely women and non-binary actors with the exception of Judge Turpin to highlight the dangers of the patriarchy's placement of cis white men in the highest positions of power.
