Summer has worked locally with ReAct, Langston

Hans Wolf (of Seattle Opera), Washington Shakespeare Festival
(based in Olympia), and Imagination Central (N.W. regional
school tour). Her favorite roles/shows include: Bianca in
Taming of the Shrew, Celia in As You Like It,
and Queen Isabel in Richard II all with WA Shakespeare
Festival last summer; also Magggie in ReAct's first
run of A Chorus Line and Edge of the World Theatre's
1999 cast of Godspell.
She performed in Tawnya Pettiford-Wates'
remount production of Women on Tap at Langston Hughes.
Summer loved playing multiple characters in this new multi-media
muscial drama, and she agrees whole-heartedly with the Women
On Tap cast and crew (& the visiting guest of honor Jeni
LeGon) that this show needs to go on the road! Summer has
done corporate video and independent short-film work in Seattle,
and commercial work in Oregon, where she was raised on the
coast, two hours from Portland.
