WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. − West Lafayette native Amanda Walker is not letting the parade pass her by.

Walker is pursuing her stage career at the Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire, Ill., most recently with her portrayal as Minnie Fay in the theater’s production of “Hello, Dolly!”

Walker, who was born and grew up in Greater Lafayette, has been performing in the Chicago area since 2019. With live shows just recently resembling a sense of normalcy since the COVID-19 pandemic, “Hello, Dolly!” is one of Walker’s first shows back on stage.

“I was born in the (Lafayette) area and was there my whole life,” Walker said. “…I live in Chicago (now) and I have on and off since 2019. Obviously, the pandemic kind of put things to a stop for a while, but I have been doing theater here in Chicago for the last couple years.”
