Julie is an actor, singer, narrator and host who will next be seen in Bark! The Musical at Theatre Palisades from August 31-October 7th. In recent years, some of her acting projects have included a starring run of Annie Get Your Gun with the Aerospace Players in Torrance, and a run of The Cinderella Waltz at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre playing the role of Mother McGee, the bawdy and vivacious fairy godmother to rave reviews.
Her latest short film, Moving Day, won an Award of Recognition from the IndieFEST film awards and a Special Mention at Global Shorts, and is up for consideration in other festivals around the world. Intrusion, another short film she starred in, played in two film festivals in 2015, winning the audience choice award in Los Angeles. Other short films can be found in the short film gallery of this site.
She’s composing a Christmas concert of original holiday music with Diego Hellewell, the Ultimate Holiday Musical Spectacular, to be performed live in Los Angeles this December. Stay tuned for more details.
Julie sings all over town on recordings, soundtracks, and local church services – her current vocal residencies are at Westwood Hills Congregational Church in Westwood and St. John Chrysostom Catholic Church in Inglewood. She sang with the Angeles Chorale for many years. With them, she has sung with Julie Andrews, Barbra Streisand, Barry Manilow and others. They also record music for various trailer libraries, so you’ve likely heard her voice (the highest one!) on trailers, commercials, television shows and more.
Julie is a producer, writer and director.
She has produced many short films and is looking into expanding into feature films. She has written two pilots and seven feature-length scripts, including one called Whisper about a rock star whose voice is permanently damaged, which her production company, Red Tape Productions, is raising funding for.
