Body Parts
broadcasts live mondays on Skylight T.V. at Children’s Memorial Hospital
Directed by: Rene Roy

Tracey has been making rounds at Children’s Memorial for seven seasons as Extra Techician Tracey, the host of Body Parts — a one-hour, two-segment, live game show filmed before a contestant-filled audience of ambulatory patients, WITH callers joining in the fun from beds throughout the hospital!
That’s right — everybody plays when Tracey's interrupts the hospital routine with a chance to win something from the prize cart, delivered by Extra Technician Tracey herself!
Jay Jay in the Lobby
Improv Performance/Pilot Program at Children’s Memorial Hospital
Directed by: Rene Roy

Tracey wheeled around as Jay Jay a very curious resident of the hospital. Jay Jay's never at a loss for words and interested in everything, everyone, everywhere.
