A devoted outdoor enthusiast who grew up in south central Michigan, Martha was introduced to theatre at an early age with the vibrant community theatre of the Tibbets Opera House. While working as a nurse at a university clinic, Martha was able to earn a BA in Theatre Arts which cemented her love of the art. Martha has been a part of Playhouse 395 since The Sound of Music in 2006 where she was cast as a nun alongside her daughter (one of the highlights of motherhood). Martha has since been both on-stage and behind the scenes working as a Stage Manager, Director, Producer, and Artistic Director. Martha has focused on presenting standard, classic musical theater to the Eastern Sierra and takes immense pride in the Playhouse 395 alumni that have gone on to study Theatre at University and pursue careers in the Arts.
