“Easton & Zelonky are especially engaging as the guileless star-crossed lovers.” – Stage Raw

“Jillian Easton as Kate, the leader of the mechanical bull riding group, seized her opportunity to showcase her strong vocals in ‘Ride ‘Em.'” – Broadway World

“Fresh-faced and affable with a smooth, bluesy vocal quality, she proves it with fantastic flair, particularly by leading ‘Ride ‘Em’.” – Bucking Trends

“As for Easton, we saw her last in The Count of Monte Cristo – The Musical at HFF15, when I wrote: ‘She combined her strong voice with a very interesting look and performance, and was a delight to watch.’ The same was true here: a strong vocal performance, strong dance, and strong performance. Just watch her during ‘Ride ‘Em’.” – Ryan M Luevano, CA Highways

Only a few more weekends to catch me in Zanna Don’t! before I move on to Evita! You’re guaranteed to love this little show, so don’t miss it!

Booked Kate in Zanna Don’t!

“Welcome to Heartsville High, set in a world where everyone is gay–well, almost everyone! The big-man-on-campus is the chess champion, and the captain of the football team is made cool by being cast as the lead in the school musical. The students write a controversial show called ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ about straight people in the military, which becomes the catalyst for a young man and woman to fall in love. Enter Zanna, a magical, musical fairy who, with a wave of his wand, brings true love to one and all!” I’ll be playing Kate, the popular girl who realizes she’s straight in a gay world. This is going to be fun. 😉

Check out the Siamese Sex Show

In the dystopian future, Monocorp, a mysterious military/industrial/ entertainment complex, fabricates a global epidemic condemning the most innocent form of intimacy as deadly. As the world teeters on the brink of apocalypse, four fallen pop stars must overcome their difference and ban together to stop Monocorp’s evil agenda. The show humorously explores the importance of connecting and potential loss of intimacy in an increasingly technological world.

“Siamese Sex Show is a living comic book that satirizes pop music, technology, and of course sex,” says director Kiff Scholl. “Enter the underground world of the Siamese Sex Show — a sexy, shadowy, decadent futuristic cabaret that will keep you coming back for more.”

I play Vivian, the right-hand woman to the CEO of Monocorp, but I may be up to more than I seem. Tickets available here.
