Cari's current project is performing the role of Victorian "Sherlock-Holmes-meets-Batman" superhero, Mrs. Victoria Hawking, in Phoebe Roberts's serial theatre series Mrs. Hawking. She has performed in parts 1-6 from 2017-2022 as well as in the forthcoming proof-of-concept film. She looks forward to reprising the role in future episodes.
Cari's 14 years of classical dance training has come in handy onstage, as does her recent training in parkour and stage combat. She also enjoys dabbling in stage makeup, specializing in blue and green aliens.
By night an avid thespian, by day Cari is an English professor. She particularly enjoys fairy tales, both onstage (whether she’s playing the witch or the princess) and in the classroom (where she teaches their origins and evolution).
