Shanna's love for music sparked at an early age when she started studying Italian Opera. She quickly switched interests to Musical Theater and has never looked back!
Originally from Huntington Beach, California, she went to Orange County School of the Arts to pursue her dreams of performing and joined the musical theater conservatory in 8th grade. During her time there, she played Polly Baker in Crazy For You which performed at the MACY Awards and received a National Youth Award, and Eurydice in the high-school premiere of Jasper in Deadland.
Shanna recently graduated with her Bachelors of Music in Music Theatre from Florida State University, and it has been nothing short of a dream.
When she is off-stage and off-screen, Shanna loves cooking, makeup artistry, belting at the bars, belting in the shower, belting in the car, and soprano for her mom. Shanna also has an extreme passion for educating young performers, and is lucky to have worked as the Assistant Director, Music Director, and Choreographer for several children's theater companies in the LA/OC area.
