Relax, let go and be yourself in this blissful and eccentric celebration of singing, dancing and seduction.

From as early as I can recall, writing has always been my passion. Being able to combine this with my love for theatre has been a rewarding and exhilarating experience. I truly believe that there is magic in seeing a story brought to life on stage, and this is what I would like to promote to audiences.
