is a native Philadelphian & spent her childhood in the green room & touring bus of the Philadelphia Prince Music Theatre as the youngest member of their innovative Rainbow Company. When she wasn't in Philly, she was in NYC workshopping theater such as MTI & Disney's Cinderella Jr, where she played the title role for two years.
She was awarded a full scholarship at the historic high school, Germantown Academy where she was cast as leading roles each year, but her biggest scholastic accomplishment was portraying the title role in "Thoroughly Modern Millie": it was awarded Best Musical at the tristate area CAPPIE awards & Ally was awarded Best Actress. As she departed, she was honored to be featured in The Philadelphia Magazine after Germantown Academy won "Best High School Theater Program" in the Philadelphia area. She also spent those years touring around New York and Poland with the Singing Patriots, & she was the proud president of the Gay Lesbian and Straight Society (GLASS) where she promoted equality & respect amongst the student body & beyond.
She attended Roosevelt University's Chicago College of Performing Arts for her BFA in Musical Theater & proved to be a serious & competitive actress, so she continued her studies and traveled to the UK only a few months following her college graduation. After a year of intense training while on a full scholarship at The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, she received her Masters in Acting for the Stage Screen and Radio.
She moved to London where she signed with New Faces Talent Agency. While living in Cardiff and London for two years, she was honored to perform on stages in world-class theaters such as The Royal Court, The Gate Theatre, & The Richard Burton Theatre. She proudly worked professionally as a radio drama actress, worked creatively with students from top London Film schools, & sang American standard jazz tunes in Soho, London.
Ally now lives in Brooklyn.
She is madly in love with all that the city has to offer between galleries, the rich Shakespeare scene, and priceless experiences with old and new friends. She made her NYC Shakespeare debut with Classic's on the Rocks' summer production of The Winter's Tale. She has also completed two national tours singing lead vocals for Cirque du Soleil's Cirque Dreams: Holidaze Edition ( check out the photos in her Gallery: they are wild, to say the least..)
A few interesting tidbits: Winter of 2017 her one woman show, Screw The Ruby Shoes (which premiered in the UK at The Richard Burton Theatre) was selected by The NYC Winter Playwright's Festival and was performed at The Hudson Guild Theatre in Chelsea. She is a regular performer with A Work of Heart Productions in which you can catch her singing on the many NYC stages like 54 Below and The Metropolitan Room. By day, you can get a glimpse of her raunchy side on the Sex and The City Hotspot Tour where she works as a Licensed NYC tour guide & sexpert!
