ACTOR, SINGER, TEACHER
Winter & Spring 2023:
Hillary just closed an exciting seven-person production of The Tempest playing Antonia/Trinculo and Juno. It was a pleasure to share the stage with the accomplished Lawrence Pressman as Prospero. quintessencetheatre.org
Hillary Parker shines as both the scheming Antonia and the King of Naples' Court Jester, Trinculo. Her clown work is deftly executed. -Ellen Wilson Dilks, Delcoculturevultures.com
I also had the pleasure stepping into the role of Mrs. Banks in Mary Poppins at Quintessence Theatre Group during the holidays.
Hillary had the pleasure of playing one of her all-time favorite artists Georgia O'Keeffe in the world premiere of the musical Nearby Faraway in beautiful Lake George, NY. The musical follows the tumultuous relationship of O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz.
I was thrilled to return to the stage in Quintessence Theatre Group's Transformation Repertory, playing Hermione and Time in The Winter's Tale and the trickster Surly in The Alchemist.
..Days after seeing both plays I find myself unable to forget Hillary Parker's delivery of Hermione's Courtroom monologue in The Winter's Tale... Broadstreet Review
Much of the Pain and Power in The Winter's Tale comes from Hillary Parker's Spellbinding performance.... Talkin' Broadway
2020- Fall of 2022:
Quarantine was hard on all but I did find ways to stay creative. I created Rey of Light, Magical Creations. An Etsy store with magical lanterns of all kinds to bring some light during dark times. You can find more information on my contact page.
I enjoyed collaborating with InterAct Theatre company again for an online reading of Love by Kate Cortesi 10/17/21.
Hillary played The Bakers Wife in the Resident Theatre Company's production of Into The Woods 12/13/19-12/30/19.
At the front of that class were Hillary Parker as the Baker’s Wife and Kevin Toniazzo-Naughton as Cinderella’s Prince (and his appearance as the Wolf). Their performances were flawless, true to character and incredibly entertaining.
Parker and Toniazzo-Naughton deliver the best song in the production as well with their rendition of “Any Momemnt/Moments in the Woods.” It’s simply perfection. -Anthony SanFilippo, Delcoculturevultures
2018 & Summer/Fall 2019:
Hillary helped produce and perform in The Motherly Love Cabaret to raise money for Together Rising.
We raised $1000 to help families at the border.
In collaboration with Simpatico Theatre, Hillary once again
helped produce and perform in the June 2018 revival of The Motherly Love Cabaret. This time to raise money for The Maternity Care Coalition.
In November 2018 Hillary gave birth to her daughter Reyna deVallenger Parker-Goldberg.
Hillary played Case Study 1 in Siren Songs during the Philadelphia Fringe Festival Fall of 2018
Siren Songs was a verbatim styled theatrical piece focused around the topic of addiction and substance use disorder. Cultivated from first person interviews, it followed 7 individuals' tumultuous journeys through addiction and how they fought their way to recovery.
Hillary received the 2017 Best Supporting Actress Barrymore award for her work as Liz in You For Me For You with InterAct Theatre Company.
Hillary played Paulina in The Winter's Tale with The Saratoga Shakespeare Company. August 2017.
"The cast is flawless. Hillary Parker elevates the role of Paulina to that of the conscience of the play. Parker brings a sense of calmness and righteousness to the character that gives her an objectivity that helps the audience grasp the greater themes taking place within the play." - Bob Goepfert, Troy Record
Hillary married her wonderful husband JR on July 1, 2017 at
The Mansion Inn outside of Saratoga Springs, NY.
