Let's Start at the Beginning...
Born into a theatre family, Sarah was wearing elaborate costumes before she was old enough to protest. By 9 months old, she was dressed as Norma Desmond and poised to perform (see photo above.) Countless costumes followed, and childhood was spent imitating her dogs and recreating scenes from Waiting for Guffman’s Red, White, and Blaine. After an early Sound of Music audition spent crying in the bathroom, she began to get the hang of it and started belting out Sondheim songs at home and performing in school and local productions.
She went on to attend the Orange County High School of the Arts (OCSA) and recently graduated with a BFA from Oklahoma City University. She currently resides in New York City and just finished a nine month run at New World Stages.
When she isn’t performing, you can probably find Sarah thrift store shopping, playing with puppies, practicing yoga, reliving her glory days of rowing crew in college, or reading and bookmarking vegan recipes she’ll never actually follow through on. Her main goal is to break the boundaries that say a woman over 4’11” can’t be an ingénue, and that a woman can’t play Abraham Lincoln. (Because she could just as easily have been killed by John Wilkes Booth.) If anything defines her it is her eyebrows.
