Most recent credits include the workshop of the new musical Lightning in a Bottle, Spamalot (Vintage Theatre), Same Time, Next Year (Cherry Creek Theatre), Baby (The People’s Building), The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of (Miners Alley Playhouse), and Me, Myself, and Die (Open Jar Studios, NYC).

Tour), Mrs. Pettigrew Lives for a Day (BMI).
Teaching future artists has become a passion for Amy, leading children’s programs at A Class Act (NY), Sonoma Academy of Arts & Dance (CA) and now here at Miner’s Alley. There is nothing greater than a child’s imagination…let’s create magic!
