About Tracey

Born in Wiesbaden to an American military family stationed in Wiesbaden Germany, Tracey began her life as an international traveler at a very young age. In her early years, her family moved to various cities throughout the United States, finally landing in San Francisco, California. Tracey began her studies in music, theater, and dances while growing up in Northern California, and had the honor of being chosen to study at the famed American Conservatory Theater (ACT) in San Francisco.
She made her professional debut, at the budding age of 14, in a production of Mame at one of the largest Civic Light Opera companies in the country. Her stage appearances have also included leading roles in Oklahoma, Ain’t Misbehavin’, Hello Dolly, Kismet, and Cinderella and Pippin to name a few.

Tracey continued her travels and made the move on her own to New York City, New York. Within 4 months of her arrival, she landed a leading role in the new musical The Tap Dance Kid on Broadway. She enjoyed a two-year run with the show and received much critical acclaim for her work. During this time Tracey studied dance with Maurice Hines of the world famous dance team The Hines Brothers. She also appeared as a headliner in many of New York City’s top Bistro’s and Nightclubs.
Having achieved many of her dreams, Tracey wanted to explore a new challenge as an artist, so she began studies with Madam Luba Tcheresky in classical voice. In a relatively short period of time, Tracey began performing with several opera companies throughout New York City and California.

Come on to my House," Tracey’s new intimate cocktail show, is full of romantic swingin’ songs from American Songbook Collection. This cocktail show highlights music from the classic jazz era from some of the world's loved composers (Gershwin, Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart, Johnny Mercer and Harold Arlen) “Come on to my House" was slated to debut in 2016 Frankfurt, Germany.
Tracey is the founding member of performing theatre troupe “THE SHOESTRING PLAYERS.” The Shoestring Players, founded in 2002 Heidelberg, Germany, is an English speaking theatre company dedicated to performing the works of English and American playwrights in English for European audiences.

Due to the success of the completely sold out first run of this show, Tracey has decided the company is now ready to stage their first musical. Tracey directed, choreographed, and wrote a new musical called “TWIST,“ a 1960’s rock and roll musical celebrating the girl groups of the 1960s.

Tracey’s 2008 move to Frankfurt, Germany gave her the opportunity to expand her private voice and performance studio. Due to the rapid influx of students, Tracey decided to showcase her students in an original musical theatre revue called “Follies, Songs from the Big Broadway Musicals.”

It was such a success with Frankfurt audiences that Tracey wrote another show for her students called “Murder, a Christmas Tale," which was pre-viewed at the Frankfurt Jazz Keller 2009.
In 2012 Tracey began her latest adventure. She has been writing plays for young audiences. Tracey has written 6 plays for audiences.  She has begun pre-production preparation for this performance series called Showtime Theatre.
