Both my mother and father had lovely singing voices and my dad was a natural storyteller. I remember music being played a lot in our home. The acting bug really bit me in second grade when I played a love sick Martian in a musical at the Walden School in NYC.
My performance garnered much praise and I was invited to perform the song in other classrooms for students' birthday parties. I was given cake and punch for my efforts and a trip to another floor of the school. I knew then that I was destined to entertain.
Since those days, I have gotten to perform in much bigger venues and to audiences who actually pay me to do so! It has been my pleasure to act at many US regional theatres, on Broadway National Tours, on television and in films.
"Stop being so dramatic, April!" my mom would say. Well, good thing I didn't listen. Sorry Mom, I've got the acting bug. There is no cure.
