Monique is not only thrilled to be in her first production here at theater in the Heights, but also to be working with
director Candi Pickering. Monique has a degree in Theater Arts and has been acting since age nine. She worked in Los Angeles
as an actress, location scout, and makeup artist. She has studied with local actor and director Ed Claudio, playwright and actor
Richard Broadhurst and studied Shakespeare in Ashland Oregon in summer workshops. Some are her favorite roles include but
are not limited to: Lottie - An Enchanted April, Monica - The Bad Seed, St. Monica - The Last Days Of Judas Escarriot,
Aunt Abbey - Arsenic and Old Lace, Truvy - Steel Magnolias, Miss Hannigan - Annie, Lady Macbeth - Macbeth and
Kate - The Taming Of The Shrew.
It may be cliche, but this cast of women are truly talented and more importantly all beautiful of heart.
This experience has been a gift. Thank you to Candi for the experience and Blake Flores and Vanessa Voetsch for bringing this wonderful
theater space to the Citrus Heights community. I would like to dedicate this performance to my recently deceased friend
and wonderful actor Ron Galbreath.
