Sierra Rep did it with a hilarious comedy in the Fallon House. Based on the Hasbro game and the iconic Paramount movie, six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects.
Jill Slyter is enjoying her second career as a Registered Nurse after retiring from show business in August of 2007. She finds that exposing herself to the vulnerability of live performance, where sheer terror lives, is a great way to unwind from the daily stresses of Hospice Nursing. Before retiring from Musical Theatre, Jill appeared on Broadway in “Show Boat,” opposite Jerry Lewis as Lola in the National Tour of “Damn Yankees,” as Peggy Sawyer in the National Tour of “42nd Street,” and as Cassie in an unbelievable number of National, European, and International Tours and Regional productions of “A Chorus Line.” Regionally, she appeared as Rose in “Gypsy,” Polly in “Crazy for You,” Woman 2 in “…and the World Goes ‘Round,” Fastrada in “Pippin,” Miss Sandra in “All Shook Up,” Miss Adelaide opposite Maurice Hines in “Guys and Dolls,” Charity Hope Valentine in “Sweet Charity,” one of the cats in “Cats,” The Acrobat in SJCMT’s production of “Matilda,” Martha in SJCMT’s “White Christmas,” and most recently as Solange LaFitte in “Follies” at SF Playhouse. For a brief moment, Jill carried a 4.00 GPA at the Colorado School of Mines where she majored in Mechanical and Chemical Engineering before finally graduating Summa Cum Laude at CSU Monterey Bay with a BS in Nursing. Jill hopes to be the first Engineer/Nurse/Actor on Mars.
