Molly is a singer/actor originally from St. Paul, MN.  She started performing at an early age by knocking on her neighbors’ doors and asking for candy/loose change in exchange for a song or dance.  After realizing she can make a buck , Molly began auditioning for professional shows and theatres. 

She paid her dues singing at Valley Fair in MN, The Medora Musical in North Dakota, Six Flags Over Georgia, and Walt Disney World in Florida.  Molly then spent a year traveling around the world singing on Norwegian, and Royal Caribbean Cruiselines.  Her next move was a year and a half contract singing at Universal Studios, Osaka, Japan.  Living in Japan turned out to be one of the most positive, memorable experiences of her life.

 

 

Upon returning from Osaka, Molly heard about an audition for the Rocky Horror Picture Show in Chicago, IL.  She decided to hop in her car and crash the audition on a whim.  She landed the role of Magenta, fell in love with Chicago, and decided to stay.  Molly then met the all girl, rock band CATFIGHT, who happened to be looking for a replacement lead singer.  She got the job, and spent 3 years with the girls... playing everything from college frat parties, to New Years Eve at The Drake Hotel, to a National Swingers Convention at The Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. 

 

After Catfight, Molly performed in musical theatre shows at Beef and Boards Theater in Indianapolis, The Marriott Licolnshire Theater, Ravinia Festival (with Patti Lupone!) and the Mercury Theatre in Lincoln Park.  Shortly therafter, Molly joined pop/dance/cover band Rock Candy, and happily returned to the bar/festival scene.  Next, Molly put away her fishnets and combat boots to take a year long gig playing Vivian Pressman on the National Tour of Dirty Dancing on Stage. 

 

 

After dancing dirty for a year on the road, Molly returned to Chicago, purchased her first condo, and began to sing in rock cover band Black Betty.  In the fall Molly took a short break, returning to MN to play Magenta (for the 3rd time!) in Rocky Horror Picture Show with Cardinal Theatrics.

 

 

 

Molly is now back in Chicago.  She is currently singing with Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band- entertaining the military and their families all over the world.  She sings in an all girl band called CATFIGHT.  She is also singing regularly downtown in the lounge at a 5-star steakhouse called Mastro's.  She continues to perform on musical theatre stages in Chicago.  Molly is a fan of yoga, her family, wine, Chicago in the summer, doughnuts, and rare red meat.  Not necessarily in that order.
