July 2019: Join Tora as she plays Viola in this foot stomping version of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.
Célébrons ce beau jour… In this “hootenanny” Twelfth Night, Director Thomas Kapusta reimagines Shakespeare’s wistful play of festivity and loss via his French-Canadian heritage, transporting the ensemble comedy to a kitchen parlor in Hardwick, Vermont. This Twelfth Night invites its audience to join in fifty years of LeCours family music-making tradition, inspired by the American folk revival, their Québécois roots, and the joy derived from performing together for each other. When words fail, it’s music that lets us love in mourning, mourn while celebrating, and celebrate being in love.
May 9th-11th: Come see Tora play WENDLA in the heart wrenching and angst-driven SPRING AWAKENING at the Irondale Center, running May 9th-11th. Tora and a cast of actor-musicians will act, sing, and move all while accompanying themselves in this new take of this famous musical. Visit the website to learn more, and purchase your tickets here.
Summer 2018: Starting at the end of June, Tora will be appearing in three shows in rep at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival. Make sure to see her in Richard II, The Heart of Robin Hood, and The Seamaid's Music playing all the way through the beginning of September. View calendar and purchase tickets on Hudson Valley's website here.
Spring 2018: Catch Tora playing violin in the upcoming NBC series Rise! From Jason Katims, writer and executive producer of "Friday Night Lights" and "Parenthood," and Jeffrey Seller, producer of the explosive Broadway hit "Hamilton," comes a heartening new drama about finding inspiration in unexpected places. When dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor, "How I Met Your Mother") sheds his own self-doubt and takes over the school's lackluster theater department, he galvanizes not only the faculty and students, but the entire working-class town. Inspired by a true story. https://www.nbc.com/rise?nbc=1
