Julianne began her career as a musical theatre performer following a B.A. in Theatre Arts from Point Park University. After a year in the Pittsburgh cast of NUNSENSE, many silly theme park shows, dinner theatre gigs too scary to mention and a stint in a hen suit, Julianne turned her focus to writing, eventually completing an MFA at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, studying under John O'Keefe, Julie Jensen, and the late, beloved Davey Marlin-Jones. Julianne has performed at such theatres as Mill Mountain in Roanoke, VA, the Fulton in Lancaster, PA, and here in town at SkyPilot Theatre and the Secret Rose. As a playwright, the theatres she has been read or produced at include Venus Theatre (Laurel, MD,) Mill Mountain, the Fulton, American Theatre of Actors (New York,) the Blank (Los Angeles,) the William Inge Center for the Arts, Ensemble Studio Theatre (New York,) the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, SkyPilot Theatre, the Secret Rose and Whitefire Theatre (Sherman Oaks). She has directed and/or produced several original plays, and has served as a literary manager, dramaturg and theatre professor. Currently, she is an Arts Minister at the Parish Church of St. Mark, works on THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON, and is enrolled in the Fundraising and Institutional Development program at UCLA. She is an Active Member of the Dramatists Guild of America, and represented by the Robert A. Freedman Dramatic Agency in New York.
