Amy the Actress

I have both classical and contemporary musical theatre training, and have acted and performed in film, theatre, commercials, opera, sketch comedy, theatre for young audiences, cabarets, Shakespeare, physical theatre, film noir, and everything in between. I’ve played 50+ ingenue leading roles and supporting characters in regional and traveling productions, (including my own one-woman show) and some of my favorite roles have been Maria in Sound of Music, Eponine in Les Miserables, Anne in Diary of Anne Frank, an Agnes in Agnes of God.

These are some of my other favorite roles: Download PDF
