Having grown up in Wilmington, Erin is thrilled to be back in the Port City after 18 years of living in New York City, and a quick 3 years in the Raleigh/Durham area. As a professional actor for over 20 years, her vast skill set pairs well with the hospitality industry. Proudly wearing the badge “a jack of all trades”, Erin’s professional background includes 25+ years in the restaurant industry, 15+ years in catering and event planning, 10+ years of customer service, dozens of regional theater productions, and 5 years of Broadway National Touring (Hairspray, Grease, Shrek and The Wedding Singer). Being the Hospitality Coordinator for the Wilson Center is a beautiful package of all the things she’s ever done in her life!
Growing up on the Wilmington stages, most recently Erin was honored to kick off Thalian Hall’s 2017 Artist Season performing her award-winning one-woman Marilyn Monore tribute cabaret play entitled “With Love, Marilyn” in which she not only starred but co-wrote and co-produced. Erin worked for 7 ½ years for Joe Allen Restaurant in the heart of Manhattan’s Broadway Theater District where she served, assistant managed, and planned events. Erin was also the co-producer, production coordinator and served as the coveted title ‘Miss Joe Allen’ for the yearly award show, The Joey Awards; celebrating the theatrical patrons, celebrity clientele, regulars, and the restaurant staff.
Recently Erin added teaching to the resume. This past year and a half she served as the Performing Arts Teacher (grades 6-12) for Camelot Academy in Durham, where she was able to keep her passion for the arts alive through arts education during a very difficult time for our industry. She teaches and coaches privately as well. In 2015, Erin published a book entitled ‘Theatrical Baggage: A Manual, Workbook and Bible on How To Survive a National Tour and Other Gigs’, selling over 1200 copies to date, ‘Theatrical Baggage’ has guided many touring actors over the years and is honored to be on the shelves of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and the American Musical and Dramatic Academy.
New to the Wilson Center staff, Erin is excited to oversee all the Food and Beverages that pass through this beautiful theatrical venue, as well as take care of the incredible artists that grace our stage.
When not frolicking around the theater, Erin can be found drinking rosé, traveling, and watching scary movies with her handsome surf lovin’ High School Visual Arts teacher husband, Luke, and their beautiful husky rescue, Boo.
