Annie Gaybis Actress, Singer, Dancer









D.O.A Takes Home the Gold

At the Flagler Film Festival

Tom Coughlin, once said, "Winning is what happens when commitment, desire, talent, preparation, hard work and leadership all come together".

In 2023, all of those elements came together for my latest firlm, D.O.A., as we swept the house at the Flagler International Film Festival.

So, without any further delay, ladies and gentlemen, your winners:

My time working on D.O.A. has been amazing, and seeing it striking such a chord on the festival circuit has been nothing short of incredible.

Onward and upward!

Die Fledermaus

Last year, I kicked off rehearsals for the comedic opera, Die Fledermaus for First Coast Opera. It's an Opera performed on New Years because it's about a New Years Party gone wild, and our NYE production lived up to its reputation!

I played a role that was written for a male named Ivan but, hey, it was adapted to a female character named, by the director, Ivana. Nelson Sheeley, our director, assured me this would be a wild ride full of dance and wanton behavior, and I came ready for it! In fact, when I spoke with him on the phone, he asked if I would be alright with it. I was a muse to Prince Orlofsky and I said "Fine" and, guess what: Prince Orlofsky is always portrayed by a woman - in this case, Opera Singer Sarah Nordin.

Who knew? But I certainly was game!

Well! I unfastened my seatbelt and let myself fly all over that stage.

Oh, and there was a comedic role that they usually have a comic actor portray. It's a very pivitol part. Sid Caesar did it at THE MET, as did Dom Deluise, and Jack Gilford. Well, my husband and I don't say this modestly, but the talented actor/comedian JOHN BYNER portrayed this role.

It's considered almost an honor to be asked to do this. What a way to go into 2023!!!

A Tale of Stage and Screen

I was thrilled to finally see the film I co-star in, DOA, come to life. It's currently making the festival circuit and I have gotten and seen, first-hand, how different audiences react to it.

It recently closed out the St. Augustine Film Festival, with the biggest audience turnout the event had seen in 13 years. And I have to say...please visit my latest What's New Page and I will tell you e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g!
