Born and raised in Danvers, Massachusetts, when she was presented with the options of being either a Pilgrim or a Native American in her preschool Thanksgiving pageant, Paris chose to dress as a turkey. After she played Peter Pan in third grade, Paris determined that she wanted to be an actor when she grew up, and her wonderful parents supported her with love and laughter every step of the way. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theatre from Ithaca College in upstate New York, and her Masters degree in Acting from California State University, Fullerton. Paris joined the Resident Acting Company in 2014 after having spent parts of the previous two seasons with Barter, and was overjoyed to find a home after working in regional theaters across the country over the past 20 years. Favorite roles here include Mrs. Meekly (Unnecessary Farce), Bonnie (Anything Goes), the Bird Woman (Mary Poppins), the Witch (Big Fish), Carmen (Curtains), Rosie (Mamma Mia), Vernadette (Dixie Swim Club), Emma (Over The River and Through The Woods), Martha Watson (White Christmas), Dody (Madame Buttermilk), Elizabeth (Richard III), and Mrs. Hubbard (Murder on the Orient Express). Paris sends heaping bushel baskets of love home to her fantastic folks, and is so very grateful for the passion and commitment of the wonderful Barter family. Enjoy the show, and thank you for supporting live theatre!
