Project Description

As a proud SAG-AFTRA member for many years, Candy has appeared on stage, screen, in commercials, voice-overs, TV, and the internet. She co-founded an improv and stand-up comedy group, The Barely Insane Players, then developed her first two solo shows about nurses, Whatever Happened to My Paradigm? and Full-Frontal Nursing: A Comedy with Dark Spots

Candy’s third solo show, An Evening with Florence Nightingale: The Reluctant Celebrity, is presented as an interactive show based on the question: “What would Florence Nightingale think about our world today, and what advice would she give?” 

As Florence, she captivates with her spoken-word poetry and audience Q & A. Florence is wise, witty, sassy, and lives the “we” centered message. The world needs Florence now!

“Candy’s use of voices, humor, music, and full stage movement provided a truly captivating and authentic performance…Her depiction of Nightingale to make connections between Florence Nightingale’s time and our current healthcare system that otherwise wouldn’t be possible, and as a result, her performance was more relevant than most. We would highly recommend Candy Campbell to any organization looking to engage lovers of history and honor nurses in their community.”
