I am creating my second solo theatre show.  It's hilarious & heart-warming & delves into the character & experiences of a fabulous Korean immigrant in New Zealand.  Soo Young Kim, the narrator and comic relief from my first show "Nick:  An Accidental Hero" had a dream.  To tell the story of her own musical form!  Audience members kept asking when we might see it is now time to give the people what they want!

I have enlisted a team of highly respected industry professionals and I am incredibly grateful for having them onboard.  This includes Ben Crowder (director), Alex Taylor (music composition), Rachel Marlow (lighting design). This money raised here will be to pay them for their services.  It will also cover set/props and some marketing.  Your contribution will be allowing me to create to another piece of work that I can develop and tour.  I can't express how appreciative I will be for any contribution to this.  Thank you!

-The show will gently bring awareness to the trials and tribulations of the many immigrants in New Zealand.
- I'll develop my performance and story-telling skills, I'll entertain the masses and tour both shows for the foreseeable future.  I'll be self-sufficient and financially stable in this crazy artistic career!


  • One Day More!


    The show is opened, the reviews are fantastic and Soo Young is fufilling her dream! Theatreview sung Soo Young's praises and they thought Renee was pretty spectacular as well. "As Soo-Young says, "Everything has to sparkle!" and this show certainly does. A brilliantly glittering wee crown to be worn proudly by such an energetic, giving actress." You can check out the review here.

    Ben, Soo Young's director, felt she may benefit from some singing lessons with outstanding kiwi song bird Don McGlashan. She thought this was a wonderful idea....
