Allison received her training at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA and Columbia College in Chicago. As an actor, she has performed in over thirty productions in Chicago since 1992. She was last seen performing in Frankfort, Michigan for Lakeside Shakespeare Theatre as Antonia in The Merchant of Venice and Sicinius in Coriolanus. She was a proud member of the Factory Theater’s ensemble from 2000 to 2011 and she also served as their Executive Director from 2001-2007. In 2009, she successfully made the leap to a full time job in not-for-profit theater administration as the Managing Director for Lifeline Theatre where she remains committed to the production of new works. After years of admiration, Allison is thrilled to be finally working with WildClaw for the first time and thanks Manny for not complaining that she is never home.
