AT 51, NICKIE SUMMERS DOES NOT LET AGE KEEP HER FROM LIVING HER DREAM OF BECOMING AN ACTRESS. IN TWO WEEKS, AT 51, SHE IS OPENING AS THE STAR OF “MRS. BILLINGSLY”
HER STORY IS INSPIRATIONAL TO SAY THE LEAST
Nickie Summer’s favorite phrase is: “Bloom where you’re planted.” Nickie truly believes that whatever the circumstances in your life, there is opportunity to be productive, creative and to contribute in your life.
She certainly has lived by her philosophy that self-imposed limits should not prevent you from pursuing your dreams.
About 2 years ago, when her daughter was going off to college, her daughter asked her if there was anything her mom had always wanted to do, but didn’t? That simple question caused Nickie to pause and consider;” what is her passion, her joy, her true self?” Her answer was acting and modeling. She had dabbled in it in her early ’20’s, but never followed through. So, she set a course and began taking steps that would move her in the direction to pursue her passion.
“The last two years has lead me on a journey in the entertainment industry, fulfilling experiences I left behind years ago.”
On February 16th, at the age of 51, she will walk on stage performing the lead role in the theater production, Mrs. Billingsley, and will follow that up this spring with a role in the stage play Slavery to Freedom, both produced by TY Martin Studios.
“Age can be a self imposed limitation whispering in one’s ear ‘pursue your dream? what’s the purpose?’ When in reality, this is the best time to come full circle in life, get re-engaged with joy, and bloom! Life is about endurance, living life with vitality at the age of fifty and over as we did in our twenties…live your life not your age…how fun is THAT???!!!! The difference between today and tomorrow is the will to start…Define your goal, Set a course, Move it forward!” Nickie Summers
