An Unplanned Hiatus and Announcement!

So the end of November threw me into an unplanned hiatus from blogging and personal social media. My online activities were restricted to the social media responsibilities for my job, as well as extra holiday hours at the store. Not that it wasn't a welcome time to be...

Keys To The Animal Room

My next project is a staged reading of Peta Murray's Keys to the Animal Room at The Beacon Theatre. Directed by Christine Vittorini, it takes a hard look at domestic violence and how the signs of abuse so often go ignored. I play the role of the battered wife, Julie....

Presently…

Can you believe it's almost the end of September? Where did all the glorious warm weather go? It's been such a busy past few months. I've been working a lot, and next week I start rehearsals for a new project I'm working on. On the go as always, and even though I just...

Behind the Scenes of The Pawffice!

The web series I worked on earlier this summer with Pet360 went LIVE today! Check out ALL the episodes of "The Pawffice" HERE! Here is one of our blooper reels! The other actors Joie and Brett were great to work with, but the most professional actor of all was little...

The Pawffice

I Got A Rocking Chair

I bought myself a rocking chair a few days ago. For my porch. Here's to completing one more trip around the sun! Considering how close I was to not completing the first one, I am thankful for every year. It's funny how the trip just gets faster and faster and faster...

An Actor's Job

This post is inspired by a actress friend of mine. She is beautiful, talented and one of the sweetest people I know. Like all actors, all she wants is to perform good, provocative and artistically satisfying work in the industry she's chosen. Over lunch one day, she...

Music Monday – The Way You Are

Here's an oldie but goodie that I wrote several years ago. One day I'll have the music fleshed out and marvelous instead of just basic chords. I am but no means a trained musician, but I'm quite proud of this rough draft of little ditty. Every broken heart I've ever...

From Ingenue to MomBod...
My name is Yvonne de Salle, and I’m a singer-actor on a selective hiatus. Maybe I’ll make it back onstage someday, but for now I’m perfectly happy making up nursery rhymes and songs for and about my two daughters. Sometimes the songs go off the rails pretty ridiculous, but life’s too short, so just keep singing!  Read more…
