Happy New Year! I'm so excited to be headed back to Florida to work for Prather Productions doing Midlife 2 #WhatDidIComeInHereFor, the newly revised version of Bob & Jim Walton's show. It will be my debut at their Off Broadway Palm space, and I get to share the stage with lots of friends including my boyfriend Kristofer Holz. He's pretty talented and I love spending time with him on and off stage. We are available to work separately or together, so head on over to his site to check out his work!
After working all year I'm excited to be going back to Australia to visit friends from my days working on Celebrity Cruises MV Horizon!
I get to literally break a leg in Prather Productions sensational 42nd Street, directed by Ann Nieman.
See the reviews!
BroadwayWorld: "Hope showed the audience Dorothy's transformation through the show. Though Dorothy is a bit cynical and not exactly the kindest character, she does have a soft side, and I think Hope did a marvelous job of showing the audience that side of her. Hope also has been in many shows at Broadway Palm, and I am impressed by her strong vocals every single time."
Captiva Sanibel Times: "Hope who knocks it out of the park with two great songs...."
Fort Myers Weekly: "Ms. Hope ...has a terrific voice, and her scenes have great energy...."
Leapin' Lizards! I'm going to have to be mean to two of my favorite Little Girls (Piper Sobon and Ava Stoeberl) in Prather Productions Annie at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre! Looking forward to another fun summer in Fort Myers, FL!!!
I'll be re-boarding the Cotton Blossom as Parthy Hawks in Prather Productions Lancaster porduction of Show Boat at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre!
While I'm in the city for auditions before heading back to Lancaster to board the Cotton Blossom in Show Boat, I'm also living the dream working as a background extra (finally I can say I did an episode of Law & Order!). I also had the opportunity to catch up with former voice student Sam Seleznow and recreate one of our favorite production stills from when he was Toby and I was Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd!
I will also be appearing in the Cranky Cabaret at 7 pm on Saturday, February 24, and 6 pm on Sunday , February 25.

I'm headed to the Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre to portray the wisecracking Martha Watson in Irving Berlin's White Christmas.

I am wrapping up Quilters the Musical, and will finally be able to fulfill a lifelong dream of being in two productions at different regional theatres in different states simultaneously, having recorded the voiceover role of advice columnist Gwendolyn Holmes for Maples Repertory Theatre's production of Shout! The Mod Musical while portraying Martha Watson in Prather Entertainment Group's production of White Christmas at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre in Lancaster, PA. To purchase tickets, click here.
I'm headed out to Macon, Missouri for a month to portray Mother in Maples Repertory Theatre's upcoming production of Quilters the Musical. Follow the link for more information on the production and on how to purchase tickets if you will be in the area.
Reviews are out and Prather Entertainment Group's Mary Poppins at the Broadway Palm is a smash hit!
"Jennifer Hope was a standout as Mr. Banks' horrible nanny Miss Andrew. Clad all in black, she swoops around like a cross between Cruella De Vil and Miss Hannigan. That she is also portraying the gentle Bird Woman shows her versatility. And what a voice she has."
I'm currently in rehearsals for Prather Entertainment Group's upcoming production of Mary Poppins at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. I will be playing Bird Woman and Miss Andrew. I'm also currently appearing as Mrs. Peacock in Clue The Musical and as the Witch in Rapunzel.
"Jennifer Hope is wonderful as the philandering Mrs. Peacock, who is lining up the be-medaled Colonel Mustard as her sixth husband as soon as Boddy is out of the way. Her chilly rendition of 'Once a Widow' is spellbinding."
