Billie’s first professional review stated she “couldn’t be more appealing if she were a banana.” Sadly there is no practical way to test this statement. Billie enjoys a vibrant theatrical career in Seattle where her work in Cabaret (Sally Bowles) at The Village Theatre, Sunday in the Park (Dot/Marie), Guys and Dolls (Adelaide), Wonderful Town (Eileen) at the 5th Avenue Theatre, Das Barbecü (Brünhilde), Vanities (Mary) at ACT and Seussical (Mayzie la Bird) at SCT has been celebrated with 3 Gregory nominations a Gregory Award and 3 Footlight Awards. This year you might have also caught Billie as Carrie Pipperidge in the 5th Avenue Theatre’s production of Carousel or one of 2 well-received productions she directed – Scott Warrender’s Peanutty Goodness at Theater Schmeater or Jesus Christ Superstar at SMT. Billie debuted on Broadway with Scandalous and can be heard as Eve on the Original Broadway Cast recording. You can hear her as well on the original cast recoding of A Christmas Story in the creamy radio quartet and on Café Nordo’s Music for Dining Vol. 1 – the tunes from which she is currently reprising in a remount of Sauced at Nordo’s Culinarium in Pioneer Square. Billie is not at all famous for Rita’s running piano ad lib in White Christmas or playing Dyanne in the first music-stand reading of Million Dollar Quartet at the coolest event of the year – the Village Theatre Festival of New Musicals- but she sure does delight in over-developing ensemble roles, making the band laugh and new works at all stages of development. Billie is a proud founding member and middle voice of the golden age girl trio, The Riveting Rosies. She loves all sides of the creative table and produced the first annual Seattle/Mainstreet Festival of New Musicals hot on the heels of her directing debut - Kiss of the Spider Woman at Second Story Repertory. Billie has also written and performed her own original work at several venues that shut down shortly afterwards such as the Seattle Fringe Festival, Liberty Deli and Thumpers. Billie hopes this was a coincidence and is working on a new piece for 2016. Billie has been teaching many facets of musical theatre arts to all ages around and about Seattle for the last 10 years (the 5th Avenue, Freehold Theatre, Village Theatre) and has enjoyed running song interpretation/are-you-sure-you-want-to-do-this-with-your-life-? master classes at schools far and wide. Billie attended Fairhaven College at Western Washington University with a concentration in Performance: Becoming the Artist and the Instrument that meant spending most of her time in the theatre and music departments and she takes life lessons at the church of Maya Angelou and L. Cohen albums: Ring the bells that still can ring/Forget your perfect offering/There is a crack in everything/That’s how the light gets in. www.billiewildrick.com.
