More on Abby:
With strong background and many professional credits in musical theatre, dance, circus and theatre, Abby has been performing since age 11 (originally a young Opera singer, she then switched over to dance before continually finding she was able to dabble in Musical Theatre 'on the side'), she has done over a dozen Musicals in various capacities from leading roles to featured dancer, technician, hair and makeup, etc, she has performed in various cities and has even toured across Canada for Musical Theatre as well as around the world for Dance and Circus. Reinventing herself now, she has decided to self produce and give her self permission to explore the idea of art, independent identity, belonging through creating spaces that feel safe and welcoming to anyone who is a human. Several local drag artists have found their first first show through her during her first year producing and now she is giving herself the chance to open her heart and sing the songs deemed ''not meant for her'' based off appearance and expectation, as these are the ones that touch her heart. Come share in the beauty of a first step toward something truly beautiful!
