Her first role in a musical was as a flying monkey in The Wizard of Oz, but some of her favorite roles to portray include The Cat in the Hat in Seussical and Marty in Grease. This Hoosier has been in the peach state for 12 years: paralegal at Morgan & Morgan by day, sound engineer at the Bay Street Theatre by night. When Cami isn’t on stage, you can find her watching wild birds with her wife and taking too many pictures of her dogs.
