Hi, hello! It's Alana, like uh-LAH-nuh, and this is my website. I am currently a senior at the University of Michigan and spending my days drinking some form of coffee and, when I feel ambitious, attempting some strange vegan recipe.
This is where I organize my work in process, and things that I think my friends would enjoy.
Growing up in Gainesville, Florida, ballet and jazz dance was my self-expression until I was in high school, when I took part in my first musical. In Ann Arbor, my work with We the P.R.O.U.D. Polycultural Productions has given me the gift of collaborating with the people I most admire. My fascination with new forms of play has taken me to New Hampshire with the New England Literature Program and to the Northern mountains of Italy to perform INTO THE WOODS. I am also so happy and grateful for my work with the Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts, where I've played Stephanie Mangano in SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, and I plan to play Susan in BIG: THE MUSICAL, this Summer 2021!
And I am so happy to announce that I just graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre from the University of Michigan, Class of 2021 -- Go Blue!
