An Indoor Theatre Adventure at the Barn Theater

Directed by ZOË SWENSON GRAHAM

Zoë Swenson-Graham returned to the Bay Area in 2015 after living in London for nearly seven years, where she worked as an actor, dancer, and trained as a stage combat instructor and fight choreographer– working around the UK teaching in various drama schools, and working with organizations such as the Royal Opera House, The Globe, Southwark Playhouse and The Kings Head Theatre. Since returning to the Bay, Zoe has choreographed for and taught with the American Conservatory Theatre, Berkeley Rep School of Theatre, Oakland School of the Arts, Sierra Repertory Theatre Company, Broadway By The Bay, East Bay Center for the Performing Arts, YMTC, Palo Alto Children’s Theatre, Mountain Play Association and MoonSchool with 42nd Street Moon. At the Mountain Play, she has performed in Peter Pan and Grease, performed in and choreographed the fights for West Side Story, fight choreography for Beauty and the Beast, and co-choreographed Mamma Mia: she absolutely loves the mountain! Dance choreography credits include: Newsies (Hillbarn Theatre), Camelot (Sierra Rep Theatre), Mamma Mia (Mountain Play and Hillbarn Theatre), White Christmas (Sierra Rep Theatre Company), The Producers, A Chorus Line, Company (Mayhem Musical Theatre Company, London) and she worked as the Associate Choreographer on Music Man and Saturday Night Fever at Broadway By the Bay. Directing credits include: Bring it On (The Musical), She Kills Monsters, and A Chorus Line.  Zoe’s horror film Lasso features her acting and stunt work, which was released internationally last year, and her motion capture and voiceover work will be seen in an upcoming feature film. Zoe still loves to perform on stage, most recently appearing in Cabaret at the SF Playhouse and A Chorus Line at Sierra Repertory Theatre. She is also thrilled to be back on the mountain next summer choreographing Hello, Dolly! She would like to thank her partner David for his endless love and support, and dedicates this show to you, dear audience member, as we get to celebrate being together for live theatre once again.
