Hey there! I’m Annalisa D’Aguilar I’m an 18 year old actor from Brooklyn, New York. I just graduated from LaGuardia High School where I studied as a Drama major. I’m working on my BFA in Acting/Music Theater at Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama. I’ve been acting and training since I was 10 years old and have been involved in the arts since I was 6 years old. In my summers I have studied film production, musical theater, and acting concentrations at Summer Arts Institute, New York Summer School for The Arts and New York Film Academy. I’ve studied opera voice with the National Children’s Chorus and have worked with countless theater groups in the city. I am currently working with New Victory Theater as an Usher and activities assistant for workshops and family engagements at the New 42 Studios where shows like Hamilton, Frozen, and over 800 Broadway shows have started their journey. I was homeschooled from 4-8th grade and in that time that is where I gained the most training and versatility in my craft. I worked in YouTube, Filmmaking, Dance (tap, ballet, hip hop, jazz) to even puppetry and SFX Makeup and costume and prop design. I have worked in child care for many years. I’ve been a babysitter, acting coach, child wrangler and production assistant at TADA! Youth Theater, and Teaching Assistant at Children’s Museum of Art. I have co-produced a benefit show for the organization Guns Down, Life Up called “LaGuardia Says Enough”. I have worked with Patrick Page, Jordan Peele, Chita Rivera, Ben Vereen, Jason Robert Brown, and Stephen Shwartz. Within these past 10 years I have had many invaluable experiences and will be able to help you gain the skills you need when first starting out, or taking those first steps in an audition room. I am here to help this process as an actor be a lot easier and a little less daunting. I am here to advocate for BIPOC, LQBTQIA+, and disabled individuals who are underrepresented in the industry and allowing them to create space where they do not feel welcome. To help them figure out how to pave a way for themselves in an industry where they may not feel wanted or accepted, you need to the tools to succeed.
