You won't wanna cross Miss Margarida when she teaches us a lil lesson at
Small Space Fest!
Annette Verdolino is a local professional actor and burlesque emcee/performer, originally from Queens, New York. She attended the high school of the Performing Arts and NYU, and was a company member of the OBIE-award winning HERE arts center in New York. She's been living and performing in Las Vegas since 2003. In October of 2015 she played the title role in Miss Margarida's Way at the Smith Center, directed by Troy Heard.
Miss Margarida is a tyrannical eight grade teacher; the audience is her classroom. The New York Times described the original production this way, "savage, mad, funny and ultimately moving. Miss Margarida is a grotesque, deranged and somehow perfectly normal schoolteacher. A tour de force for an actress; part tirade, part political allegory, part expressionist vaudeville show.”
