Vicky is so excited to take part in such a fun and silly show! She’s lived in Colorado her whole life, and the Flatirons are probably her favorite hike; so this opportunity is a dream. She studies theatre at UNC in Greeley, and also performs in the metro area when possible. She wants to thank you for supporting the arts and non-traditional theatre as well as enjoying the beauty of the Colorado outdoors. “Great art picks up where nature ends” -Chagall
