Raised in Mountain View but now residing in Hickory, Williams has added her role in THE PIRATE QUEEN to an already busy schedule that includes two jobs, acting classes, and working on a BA in Criminal Studies. Phew.
On joining THE PIRATE QUEEN, Williams says: "I like pirates and history, and thought it would be interesting." She is grateful to HCT for giving her the "opportunity to learn a new craft", in a role that demands versatility throughout the performance.
