LAURA HISZCZYNSKYJ(Choreographer) is excited to return to The Shedd which is where she had many opportunities to develop her career as choreographer and performer. Since moving to Portland 7 years ago Laura has continued her work at the Broadway Rose Theatre Company, Lakewood Theatre Company, Pixie Dust Productions, Portland Singing Christmas Tree, and Santa Barbara Theatre Group. Originally from Topeka, Kansas, Laura holds a BFA in ballet from Texas Christian University and an MFA in dance from the University of Oregon. She currently teaches at the Bridgetown Conservatory of Musical Theatre, and Laura's Home Studio. In this production of HOLIDAY INN, Laura wanted to pay homage to the classic movie, the popular dances of the 1940s, as well was the Broadway Production while modifying the dances to work with this fresh cast of actors. Thank you to Jim, Richard, Robert, and Emily for welcoming her back with open arms and to her supportive family, Dennis, Alex, & Will.
