Personal Biography:
Hello my name is Andrea Fantauzzi and I’m honored and excited that you are looking at my website! I started my acting career at the age of five with my first musical theatre class at Steppin Out The Studio in Lee’s Summit, MO. I grew up training at that studio both as a competitive dancer and a performer in their musical theatre troop. I trained there in dance till I moved to Miller-Marley School of Dance and Voice as a high school freshmen. My last two years living in New York I trained at the Broadway Dance Center as well. My early acting training came from the Coterie Theatre. I trained there for ten years until I graduated high school along with the other schools mentioned. I started my vocal career at the age of nine when I began vocal lessons. I was desperate to begin training that I was begging for lessons before I was vocally mature enough to begin. Through my early training, I was fortunate enough to have started my professional acting career at the age of twelve as a munchkin in The Wizard of Oz. I will never forget the first time I looked up backstage at Starlight Theatre. I was in awe. Since that time I have been working in both theatre and film professionally in Kansas City, New York City, and Los Angeles.

 

My struggles as a child are what, I believe, led me into my craft. The trials I faced turned into my dedication and my ability to grow quickly as an actress. I wanted to be someone else as a child and that quickly turned into my love of storytelling. As I grew older, I began to accept myself and my circumstances because you never truly become another person. The character is you in the given circumstances that are put in front of you. The ability to understand another human being by analyzing and understanding their point of view that maybe has never been discussed is a great joy I thrive on. I don’t believe in limiting myself and I believe anything is possible with time, dedication, patience, and training.
