Stephanie Wahl as Cruise Director Melody Joy Lapidus

I grew up in Baltimore.  My mother was involved in a local not-for-profit theatre group and got my older sister involved in classes because she was shy.  I went along to rehearsals at 3 years old and started performing with the group when they needed a replacement for Gretl in The Sound of Music.
I had so many wonderful actors around me as a child as well as the artistic director of the company and I learned all my basics from them - it was wonderful.
I've been lucky enough to perform some of my dream roles: Wendy in Peter Pan Laurey in Oklahoma, Lady Macbeth in Macbeth and Abigail Adams in 1776.  One dream role still eluding me is Hedda Gabler.
I've known about "Nunsense" since it's run Off-Broadway.  And it is truly a delight to get to work everyday with Danny Goggin.  He is kind, generous, and oh yeah...funny!
What is my favorite moment in this show? Of course when I get to say "I can see Russia from my state room".
I think you can learn anything if you have an affinity or love for it.
I love to cook, be with my family, watch movies, and watch other great actors work on stage and film.
