Being a stand-by means that I do not have a principal role in the show, but I "stand-by" to provide coverage for any actor that gets injured, has an illness, or goes on vacation. Many stand-bys never go on, and some go on often. What's certain is that I'll have my hands full preparing three separate roles, ready to go on at any time! The show stars Jana Robbins, Traci Bair, Aneesa Folds, and Haley Swindal.
