dc.description.abstract My primary goal as a theatre artist is to tell stories that I believe will impact an audience. I believe that theatrical pieces should not only be engaging and interesting, they should also challenge an audience to introspection. I believe theatre can take difficult topics and ideas and explore them by setting these ideas in a context of a fictional world that can be observed. I also believe that using iconic stories and characters for this exploration is particularly effective, because the audience becomes first acquainted with the piece of art as something familiar. With all of this in mind I helped develop a concept for a Musical adaptation of the "Pied Piper of Hamelin" in conjunction with Chance Varner. My partner and I used the familiar story and iconic character types to explore difficult subjects of corruption, justice, crimes against the innocent, and the obscure nature of good and evil.
