Instructor in Theatre
In 2002, Michelle began her own company in the UK - "Victorian Experience: Interactive Educational Theatre" - a one woman, three hour interactive show set in the Victorian Era; the demand is such that she still travels back to the UK once a year to perform this. She also toured with Romeo and Juliet (playing 'The Nurse') around London and the Home Counties until she was 4 1/2 months pregnant with her twins. Then she had to quit partially because she was exhausted and partially because she no longer fit into her costume. Her role included a vicious sword fight and she still has a patch on one leg that has no feeling in it from a fall taken during that scene.
She also performed on-stage at the Criterion Theatre in Picadilly Circus (Theatre District) in London's West End as part of an Actor's Showcase.
And - to quote Michelle - "I suppose that birthing the twins was notable AND an accomplishment - it was certainly dramatic!!! (and an 'Experience')".
