Noddea is so proud to be a teaching artist for Young Artist Studio, because Civic is where she gets to work as the Director of Marketing and Communications *and* play onstage and backstage! Recent on stage credits include Bea in Something Rotten! and Marie Antoinette in The Revolutionists. Other favorites include: Little Becky Two-Shoes/Mrs. M in Urinetown, Rachel Jackson in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson (Actors’ Theatre); Lady of the Lake in Monty Python’s Spamalot, Regina in Rock of Ages (Circle); Miss Hannigan in Annie, Ring of Fire, Electra in Gypsy (Civic); Tayna in Mamma Mia! (Kindleberger Fest). In addition to her work at Civic she is a Travel Consultant/Manager with Goofy Getaways, specializing in Disney Destinations. Her favorite part of teaching at Civic is spending time with young artists and sharing knowledge and ideas. She loves traveling to New York to see live theatre on Broadway, and of course, going to Disney World and Disneyland. When not at the theatre, you can find her playing Mario Kart, supporting the West Michigan drag scene, and training at the gym for her next runDisney race.
