About Me

Virginia is a NY/VT-based actor, writer, director, singer, dancer, dramaturg, and teacher. She has performed with Home Made Theater (Saratoga, NY), The Dorset Players (Dorset, VT), Genesius Theater Company (New York, NY), Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts (Cambridge, NY), among others. 

Favorite roles include: Mamma Mia! (Sophie), Oklahoma! (Dream Laurey)Hand to God (Margery), The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek (Gin), Romeo and Juliet (Juliet), and Twelfth Night (Viola).

When not on the stage, Virginia can be found writing or directing for it. As a playwright, she has had works performed in festivals and readings throughout the Northeast (with her senior project play Austentation receiving the Kay Capo Award for Adaptaion of Comedy and her play G is for Gallium being named a finalist at the VSA Young Playwrights Festival at the Kennedy Center).

 

As a Director and Teacher for children and teens, she has run a Youth Theater Program for several years, directed high school musicals, and taught improv/acting and playwriting workshops for children and teens in various schools, theaters, and community centers in her area.

Hailing from a small town in rural upstate New York and raised in a creative household, she participated in youth theater, dance classes, guitar/piano/voice lessons and sought out every affordable theatrical/musical opportunity her community had to offer.

 

At 16, Virginia was accepted as an apprentice at Broadway Theatre Project and, after a summer spent having her ass kicked by the best of the best, she returned home with a blown mind and the crazy idea to apply to Interlochen Arts Academy. Astonished by her acceptance and scholarship, she set out for Michigan to receive two years of rigorous theatrical education. While at Interlochen, she continued to hone her craft, discovering a love of Playwriting and Screenwriting along the way.

 

Seeking to continue studying scriptwriting in tandem with theatre, Virginia attended SUNY Purchase, an institution that would allow her to major in both. While at SUNY Purchase, she was involved in numerous productions as a playwright, actor, choreographer, director, dramaturg, and costume designer. She was a member (and later president) of the SUNY Purchase Improv Club, and performed in multiple sketches for her college's television network.

 

After graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2018 with dual degrees in Theatre and Playwriting & Screenwriting, Virginia completed a year-long Artistic Fellowship at Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts and Education, the HTSO Mentorship Program with Roundabout Theater, as well as Magnet Theater's Moxie Sketchwriting workshop.

 

She is currently shooting an independent film, working on a screenplay for an upcoming biopic, rehearsing for two upcoming productions, and working at a delightful bookstore in Saratoga Springs, while continuing to write, perform, and direct.
