    "This 70-minute concert version of the musical had teensters present a story centered around 'The Heavenly 7,' a group of Brooksville Middle Schoolers led by golden-voiced Samantha Belding as Caroline, being launched into their high school experience with all the excitement, angst and anxiety that entails."

  • About Me

    Nice to meet you!! I’m Sam! :)

     

    I’m an actor and musical theatre performer from the San Francisco Bay Area, currently based out of Philadelphia and NYC. I have been studying Musical Theatre at University of the Arts (UArts) and just returned from my first national tour adventure with the amazing cast and creative team of Little Women The Musical .

     

    I’ve been a theatre kid for as long as I can remember. I’ve always wanted to tell
    meaningful stories onstage and work with other artists to create something
    special for audiences. The passion and joy I feel about musical theatre
    drives me to seek out new and exciting opportunities every day.

     

    If you ever want to discuss Dungeons and Dragons, Good Omens, Sondheim,
    Renaissance Faires, Hunger Games, Greta Gerwig movies, or Lost, reach out with
    any and all theories or opinions. I’m also a huge animal lover and miss my West
    Coast-based Golden Retriever, Cosmo, every day!

     

    “The day begins and now let’s see what this new world will do for me…”
