    CARE and Care Alike

    CARE and Care Alike

    I have always been marginalized, but NEVER alone in the margins. When I created a Coalition as a part of the launch of my Second Edition, it immediately asked the question: "What if we all helped each other out of the margins? What if the disability community lifted the LGBTQUIA Community, and what if they held space for the BIPOC community, and we all changed theatre together?"
    Please meet the pioneers of Rock The Auditions CARE Coalition. They are the wild student and faculty at Oklahoma City University's Wanda L. Bass School of Music, who are changing the theatre culture at college with me, so we can change the industry from here.
    You can find OCU CARE on INSTA at @OCU_CARE. You can also inquire about bringing CARE into your College or TEEN Program by contacting hello@rock-the-audition.com.

    Carlita Victoria: Let the Darkness Rise

    Carlita Victoria: Let the Darkness Rise

    If we didn't have mental health issues before, we certainly have them now. But what if you grew up in a cultural environment where you weren't allowed to be emotional- much less ask for professional help? I watched Carlita Victoria stand in the MIDDLE of #blm, in the MIDDLE of the pandemic, and announce her unbelievable mental health initiative for people of color. Carlita took her OWN struggle with her emotional wellness, turned it into a healing mechanism for the community, and shared it with us.

    Joy Dewing: An Ally for an Ally

    Joy Dewing: An Ally for an Ally

    Does anyone remember when Joy Dewing Casting would have me come to their Pop/Rock auditions, and teach everyone in the holding room how to communicate " "feel "to a piano player (as opposed to tempo), so you could come in and have a better audition? If you do, you'll know Joy and I have been "Auntie Allies" in the theatre community together since the dawn of time. We're here to break down what ally-ship is, what it means to the bigger picture, and the many thrilling ways to mobilize our friends in the Black community.

    Virginia Child: Hearing My Voice for the First Time

    The reason why I created Cause an Effect was to take the shame and stigma off the mental health issues that come along with just being a human in the world. With Buoyancy and Transparency, Virginia and I speak candidly about living with multiple mental illnesses, surviving trauma, and what it takes to be in service with it in your art. You'll be excited to know Virginias show, ""From Asylum to Asylum"" is now a BOOK!
