What's Wrong With The Way I Talk?

Allie Schauer is hilarious as the vocally challenged Lina Lamont in Singin' In The Rain.   
I grew up in Fargo, ND.  Fargo is very friendly and very cold!  My childhood was a blast.  I was always involved in theatre and loved auditioning for musicals whenever possible.  I started dancing and taking voice lessons when I was 14.  In high school, I attended a local summer performing arts school called Trollwood Performing Arts School.  They had/have amazing teachers there and I think that really helped prepare me to pursue a career in performing. 
I've always loved performing so much!  Moving out to New York was always a dream of mine, but I never really knew for sure if it would happen.  New York seemed pretty scary coming from Fargo, but a few students at Trollwood had moved there and they inspired me to do the same.  My parents were always very supportive and my college voice teacher, Karen Hamilton, was really influential and gave me the confidence to make the move.
I grew up watching Singing in the Rain.  I love the movie!  I've never done the show before and have always wanted to play Lina.  I think the stage version is very similar to the movie and also has the added thrill of live theatre. My favorite moment in the show is probably "Good Morning."  The song makes me so happy and the dancing is great!                        
I love Funny Girl and would love to play Fannie Brice.  I also love Les Miserables. So good!  I'd also love to play Ado Annie in Oklahoma.  
When I'm not on stage, I teach voice, dance, and piano lessons. I like to watch Law and Order SVU and the Food Network and bum around on facebook. Sleeping is nice too.  I mostly, though, enjoy spending time with friends and my super duper boyfriend, Justin.  
I like all kinds of music.  I love me some Beyonce and any current Pop or Rock music.  I like Country too. I also listen to a lot of Praise and Worship music.
