Beverly is returning to The Holiday Radio Show this year and reprising the role of Dorothy, of which she couldn’t be more thrilled! She earned her degree in Theater from Northwestern University and has been performing on stages throughout Chicago ever since. Her recent musicals include the role of Aunt Missy in Purlie, and the ensemble of Aint Misbehavin at Fleetwood Jourdain Theater.
An original member of the Najwa Dance Corps, Beverly performed in a special tribute to the Club DeLisa, which featured 1940’s dance styles, making this WWII era production that much more fun.
Her debut with Red Ink Productions was in God’s Favorite by Neil Simon as Madie, and later in Miracle Worker, as Helen Keller’s Aunt Ev. Prior to appearing in McKay Arts’ comedy pilot, Craytopia, Beverly had several featured extra roles on Chicago PD, Chicago Justice, and the indie film, Market Value.
More recently, Beverly played the role of Mrs. Tinsley in West Loop Paradise and Harvey in Poison Control, within the 10 Minute Play Fest at McKaw Theater, as well as a staged reading of The Passing in the Next Draft Reading series.
Beverly is so excited to be in The Holiday Radio Show with such an amazing cast, director and crew.
