About Isabella (She/Her/Hers)

Isabella is thrilled about joining the Statera team. She is an actress, singer, and dancer from Las Vegas. She just graduated from Southern Utah University with a BFA in musical theatre and a minor in dance performance. She is the daughter of immigrants from the Dominican Republic and is bilingual. She has spent several summers in Santo Domingo and Puerto Plata, where most of her extended family still lives, and considers her family background to be one of the most important aspects of her identity. She has a passion for creating and presenting art that is accessible to all humans all around the world and hopes to use her involvement in Statera as a way to learn how to make those passions realities.

Isabella’s favorite roles from university include Veronica Sawyer in Heathers, Charles Guiteau in Assassins, and several roles in The Laramie Project including Zubaida Ula, Andrew Gomez, and Catherine Connolly. She recieved two acting awards from the SUU Faculty for her work in Assassins and The Laramie Project. During her senior year at SUU, she became the artistic director of Second Studio Theatre Company, a student-run theatre organization; she made her directorial debut with a fun little show called Assistance by Leslye Headland.

Most recently, Isabella finished an incredible internship at The Utah Shakespeare Festival in her first professional theatre job, where she performed in British Isles Night of The Greenshow, and played Launcelet Gobbo in The Merchant of Venice.

Isabella loves tap dancing, podcast listening, badly playing the piano, and loudly posting her political opinions on Twitter. Most days you can find Isabella making coffee at The Grind Coffeehouse in Cedar City, the cutest coffee shop in Southern Utah.
