Solo theatre artist
April Wish has spent a lifetime creating, most notably her two stunningly perfect children. From hundreds of stage performances to producing nearly a dozen feature films, she is a pioneer in interactive live streaming narrative storytelling and throws really wild themed birthday parties for her kids. Having spent two decades working to support and uplift female voices on stage and on screen, she is excited to be amplifying her own story now as a Solo Theatre Artist. In 2019, MY NAME IS MOMMY went on a National Tour of San Diego, Wisconsin and Hawaii, played to sold out audiences in Los Angeles, garnered a Producer’s Encore Award at The Hollywood Fringe Festival, was extended into a run at The Whitefire Theatre and invited to participate in The Santa Monica Playhouse’s Binge Fringe Festival, the Studio Collaboration at The Long Beach Playhouse as well as The Solo Stars Series at The Lounge Theatre. MNIM was selected to be featured in the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival and New York’s UNITED Solo Festival (but was unable to perform, due to the pandemic).
In 2020/2021, she performed MNIM on Zoom several times as well as developed her second show, MOMMY MONSTER, presenting it live on Zoom to an international audience….all while making 48 ghost pinatas by hand for her daughter’s Elementary School fundraiser and learning how to teach preschool on the fly for her son’s classroom of one.
She is currently in development, collaborating on a practical and magical Solo Indie Rock Musical with an accomplished muscian, as well as a historical and personal piece exploring genecology and a storyteller series with leading solo theatre artists in the Los Angeles community.
