Stage fright? Not a chance! Lacey started her theatre arts career at a very young age, auditioning for Gretl von Trapp in The Sound of Music. Brunette hair wasn’t in her favor, and over time she found if she wasn’t always right for the on stage role, being behind the curtain was just as fulfilling.

Marketing and Publicity
Too often, small community theatres are forced to use grassroots marketing due to budget constraints. Wanting to see the show succeed, Lacey often volunteered to create posters, programs, and social media campaigns to get the seats filled. This is where all of her marketing experience began – for the love of theatre. Learn more about marketing and social media services available here.
Scenic painting, carpentry, MIG welding, props fabrication, lights, sound, costuming, makeup… Lacey took advantage of every stage craft opportunity that came her way to learn advanced techniques from experts in the industry. Having experience in all fields of stage craft allows her to assist in any backstage emergency during a live performance.
Lacey is a natural teacher and loves to share her passion for theatre arts with children. She teaches children ages 4 months – 12 years, but typically starts acting lessons around the age of 5 years. She has worked at several schools along California’s central coast between Arroyo Grande and Paso Robles.
From a beloved fairy princess in Children’s Theatre to a wicked whore in The Good Woman of Setzuan, Lacey is able to portray a broad spectrum of theatrical characters. In 2000, Lacey recevied an Award of Excellence from the International Model and Talen Association for her soap opera acting in Los Angeles, California, and was invited to play the lead role for the Santa Maria Civic Theatre’s 50th anniversary production of Wake Up, Darling, under the direction of founding member, Meg Smith. Elizabeth Taylor came to the final dress rehearsal.
