Founder/President, Wagtail Productions, LLC
Creator/Executive Producer, Cory's House
Cory is a highly successful singer/actress/writer in the Chicago area. Nominated for two Joseph Jefferson Awards, she has been seen on stages across the country, working with such notables as George Hearn, Patti LuPone, Lonny Price, Bea Arthur and Margaret O'Brien. In addition to starring roles in theatres across the country, Cory can be heard on many voice over and studio singing recordings and she has also sung live with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Auditorium Theatre's acclaimed Ovations series, and as a soloist at the distinguished Ravinia Festival. She has even taken a turn as co-host of the home improvement television show, Maxwell's House. Cory began her association with Wagtail founder Paul Pement in 1990 when they performed together in a touring social outreach program at inner city high schools. Their writing partnership began a few years later when they created live industrial programs for clients such as Marshall Fields/Dayton Hudson's, Mobil and Remington Jewelry. Foreshadowing her starring role in Cory's House, she performed as host of their children's shows I Like Who I Am and School Is Cool touring malls across the Midwest and garnering rave reviews from children and parents alike. Cory has a BFA from Michigan State University where she specialized in children's theatre and continued on over the next 15 years to dedicate herself to theatre for young audiences portraying every fairy tale princess imaginable (as well as a few wicked witches!) As mother of Celia, her two-year-old daughter, Cory enjoys having an "inside track" for learning what appeals to toddlers and babies as well as their parents. Recognizing the often-patronizing nature of children's material, she feels "inspired to write quality music that educates and entertains children while identifying with the challenges and rewards of parenthood." Cory's continued experience in the field gives her a unique perspective for creating children's educational entertainment.
