Alyssa Yard (she/her) is originally from Atlanta, Georgia and has loved her time in Winchester, but is definitely ready to take on the Big Apple! “She’s a dancing queen with a heart of gold who’s known for her incredible work ethic and her ability to get more done in a day than should be humanly possible, all while looking red carpet ready and making everyone around her smile.”… That is a quote about her from her mother who is definitely not biased at all. While she likes to joke that she does musical theatre because she wants to kick her face in sparkly costumes (which isn’t entirely untrue), she really does have a passion for performing and bringing audiences joy. Some of her favorite past credits include Val in A CHORUS LINE (Shenandoah Conservatory), Patty Simcox in GREASE (SSMT), ALL SHOOK UP and ANNIE (The Muny). In the spring, she is excited to be assisting Shannon Lewis with choreographing TUCK EVERLASTING! Her passions other than musical theatre are fitness, cirque, her cat Luna, bad reality television, and Taylor Swift.
