Marjie is an actor-dancer-singer in New York City. In January, she made her cabaret debut in What Would Judy Do? at The Duplex Cabaret Theatre to a sold out crowd, directed by Michael Pesce, accompanied by Max Gordon, and featuring guest artists Lauren Patten (Fun Home) and Daniel Emond (Great Comet). She assisted choreographer Brandon Powers with movement on Arden/Everywhere: The As You Like It Project, a re-framing of the Shakespearean play into the context of today's refugee crisis directed by Jessica Bauman at BPAC in October 2017, and on the 2017 New York Musical Festival production of The Goree All-Girl String Band, directed by Ashley Brooke Monroe. She previously performed in three original immersive productions in New York, including Kerrigan-Lowdermilk's The Bad Years, and in a core season production at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. She studies acting with Jayd McCarty at The Studio / New York and regularly collaborates with Jennifer Jancuska + The BringAbout to help develop and activate new musicals with a synthesis of movement, instinct, and language.
Marjie began performing as a young child in northern Minnesota and took her dreams to the East Coast to earn her B.A. in Dance and Human Rights from Barnard College of Columbia University, where she studied acting with Rob Bundy and Rebecca Guy and worked with modern choreographers Twyla Tharp, Larry Keigwin, Sidra Bell, and Katiti King. She also spent cherished time abroad studying performing arts, culture, and international politics in Senegal, New Zealand, and Paris.
In addition to performing, Marjie is a Regional Director for Broadway Connection, a performing arts education company that facilitates master classes with teaching artists in touring Broadway shows at performing arts studios and schools across the country. She is also the Communications Coordinator for the Manhattan-based law firm Reavis Page Jump LLP.
