Audible Narrator- Be Wild, Be Free

During COVID I had the rare gift of being able to Narrate an Audible book

BE WILD, BE FREE

By Amber Fossey

This incredibly beautiful and very cheeky book, along with its creator, has a cult following on Instagram- Zeppelinmoon

You can hear a sample of my work via her VO page HERE

or via the Harper Colins page HERE

"Adults need picture books, too! A stunning, full-color debut gift book from renowned artist Amber Fossey (@zeppelinmoon), whose whimsical illustrations and clever witticisms reveal the universal struggle and happy magic of being a perfectly imperfect human being.

Do you hear the beasts scratching at the door?

They’ve been sleeping too long, and now they’re getting feisty."

Will Scarlet gets an award...

I won a Scenie for my role as Will Scarlet in 

MARIAN: Or The True Tale of Robin Hood

"Outstanding Performance by a Featured Actress in a Comedy"

 

See our wonderful Reviews HERE

“one of Theatre Of NOTE’s most exhilarating hits in years”

“there’s not a weak link in the cast of Theatre Of NOTErs”

“Most memorable of all ...Brady’s engagingly manly/womanly Will, ... best-of-show.”


“From his first literary appearance in the 1370s to 2010’s Russell Crowe big-screen starrer, Robin Hood has kept audiences captivated for centuries. Adam Szymkowicz’s gender-bending latest may well be the most entertaining of the lot.”

ROOTS: An Evening of World Premiere Shorts is an evening of four wonderfully strange world premiere short plays, written by four accomplished Theatre of NOTE-grown playwrights, which together usher audiences through the complexity of the human condition."

"Pride and Prejudice" for Christmas

A sequel to Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" set two years after the novel ends, "Miss Bennet" continues the story, only this time with bookish "middle sister" Mary as its unlikely heroine. Mary is growing tired of her role as dutiful middle sister in the face of her siblings' romantic escapades. When the family gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, an unexpected guest sparks Mary's hopes for independence, an intellectual match, and possibly even love.

Cleo Theo and Wu- Ive Been Cast Again

I was cast as LUCY U/S (Understudy to Kirsten Vangsness)

in the Theatre of Note Production
Cleo Theo and Wu


Created by, written and starring
Kirsten Vangsness


Directed by Lisa Dring

Lucy is a modern Angeleno gal just trying to be her best self—the Cool Girl, Lady Boss and all-around getting sh*t done Boss Bitch. But, suddenly, the fate of the universe is in her hands and she’s gonna need to do better than self-help books and inspirational Insta Quotes. Never fear! Space creatures from the future and the forgotten women of ancient history are teaming up to get Lucy on the right track.

Careening through time and place, CLEO, THEO & WU takes Lucy on a heroine’s journey with the remarkable women who were so much more than the power-hungry, sex-obsessed obstacles that history books would have you believe.

Acting in Virtual Reality/ 360

PHRAZZLED


written and directed by
Phinneas Kiyomura.

"Meet Phraz and Frasz,
two different (or the same) "wannabe" writers battling ego, jealousy, love and doubt, as they strive for, and attempt to define, success in Hollywood."

Alysha at the Independant Shakespeare Co. LA

I performed twice as WOMAN/Mrs Wilde

at the ISC LA Iambic Lab for the reading of

C.3.3.: The Redemption of Oscar Wilde.

 

The three-hander play was adapted by

Scott Carter

Executive Producer of

HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher

and performed at the ISC Studios

 

Stared David Melville as Oscar Wilde.

 

"Wilde spent two years doing hard labor in English prisons after he was convicted of gross indecency in May 1895. His extraordinary writing about his experience is the centerpiece of this new play."

Alysha is a BANSHEE

I stared in the NOTE hit show

BANSHEE

Directed by James R Carey

Written by Brian C Petti

CAST LIST-

Junior- Bill Voorhees

Cara- Alysha Brady

Kit- Lynn Odell

Neil- Joe Mahon

Truck Driver-Norm Johnson.

Understudies- Jonathon Lamer, Jenny Gillett, Suzanne Voss, & Brad C. Light.

 

"BANSHEE cuts to the heart of what ails a New York family headed by an impossible matriarch, Irish immigrant Kit Sullivan. Kit is disappointed with son Junior and makes no secret of it. Junior, turning 40 and having recently suffered a nervous breakdown after years of caring for his widowed mother, wants life to return to normal. He is helped by his well-meaning cop brother, Neil, and his new girlfriend, Cara. Soon the girlfriend meets the mother, Kit, and Mother has some supernatural suspicions about this young Irish woman. All might be well if Junior weren't having terrifying visions of his own. Be it the psychological trauma or the Irish legend plaguing their home, both beg the question, which is this family's true tormentor?"
