Allie

What is your dream role? Why?

I my dream is to originate a role in a piece that incorporates modern dance, spoken word, and a dash of R&B.

What was your first big performance opportunity? Tell us about it.

I did the regional premier of 26 Miles by Quiara Alegría Hudes (the book writer for In The Heights) at Kitchen Dog Theatre in Dallas, TX. I was 17 and still in high school so the professional experience was a huge and valuable adjustment.

What is your go-to audition outfit? Why?

I'm honestly a dress pants girl. I love to feel grounded and powerful.

Funny Girl, because it was the first musical I ever came in contact with.
