After receiving a BFA in Theatre from Virginia Commonwealth University, Amy moved to New York City where she promoted Broadway shows to the travel industry, and worked at the Broadway advertising agency, Serino Coyne. Continuing her career in theatrical marketing, Amy stepped into lead marketing for the Family Tours division of Broadway Across America. For ten years, she created all materials, promotions, and marketing guidelines for several tours with Nickelodeon, Warner Brothers, Mattel, and Dreamworks. Additional work in the touring entertainment industry included Harlem Globetrotters, America’s Got Talent Live, and the Jillian Michaels tour.
Amy was Managing Director at Edmonds Driftwood Players for a year before moving to ACT Theatre where she celebrates contemporary theatre and the conversations it starts. It’s work she finds fulfilling and challenging. She also lends a marketing hand to the Phoenix Theatre in Edmonds.
After a 20-year hiatus from acting, Amy is thrilled to be back on stage. Most recently she was seen in God of Carnage as Annette at Phoenix Theatre in Edmonds, and as Cassandra in Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike with Lamplight Productions. Amy also performed in the 2017 Seattle Fringe Festival, and Seattle 48-Hour Film Festival. Favorite early roles include Babe in Crimes of the Heart, Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors, Amy in Company, Nellie Forbush in South Pacific, Sister Marguerite in Red Noses, and Sister Mary Leo in Nunsense (with Pat Carroll).
In her time away from theatre, Amy focuses on her family of five with a healthy helping of “mom duties,” loads of fun, and never-dull moments. She loves “down time” with her concert-promoter husband, which might involve stand-up comedy, a concert, or family movie night piled on the couch with their three kids.
Using her experience in the business side of theatre to help create this company with two women who continually amaze and inspire is a dream come true. Amy is excited to bring meaningful productions to the Kenmore neighborhood, and to watch the arts community take hold there.
