Erin was fortunate to find The Equinox Theatre after moving from the Twin Cities in 1999. She brought with her a B.A in Theatre, multiple performance credits, years of dance training (thanks to her dance studio owner mom) and the need to escape "big city" life. After working for years at the Stafford Animal Shelter in Livingston and performing inmany of Equinox's matinee and main stage productions, the theatre founders Soren Kisiel and Katie Goodman invited her to join the staff. As the current Artistic Director and Programs Director she couldn't be more proud of the theatre's mission and place in the community. She is a regular performer with Broad Comedy, an all female comedy troupe that got its start at the Equinox Theatre. Some of her favorite roles at Equinox include Mrs. Siezmagraff in "Betty's Summer Vacation", Magenta in our annual production of "The Rocky Horror Show", L'il Bit in "How I Learned to Drive", and as "herself" in "The Santaland Diaries" with Brian Kassar. She hopes that Bozeman and the surrounding area continue to value how Equinox brings off-beat and unlikely productions to this small mountain town!

Recently he can be found spreading his comedy wings at the Equinox theatre of Bozeman, Montana. This October he made his puppet debut with Frankenstein: A Love Story, where he played Frank himself as well as co-wrote and co-directed the play.
