Adams began her professional career as a dancer in a 1994 dinner theater production of A Chorus Line in Boulder, Colorado.

Although she enjoyed singing and dancing, she disliked waitressing and ran into trouble when a fellow dancer, whom she considered a friend, made false accusations about her to the director. Adams said, “I never really knew what the lies were. I only knew I kept getting called in and lectured about my lack of professionalism.” She lost the job but went on to perform in dinner theater at Denver’s Heritage Square Music Hall and Country Dinner Playhouse.
