Allie is anything but your typical 19 year old girl and describes herself as open, fun and impulsive. And impulsive she is! Allie took a very big, courageous step when she moved all the way to New York City from Nashville by herself at the age of 18 to try to make her way on Broadway.
Allie began at an academic high school, but the summer before her senior year she ended up at a performing arts summer camp called Interlochen Arts Camp. The staff at the camp was so impressed with her that they invited her to come to Interlochen Arts Academy, a selective performing arts boarding school in Michigan that only has a total of 500 students each year.
Allie said going to Interlochen taught her responsibility and prepared her for living in Manhattan, but she says she misses the structure she had there. She claims her biggest challenge has been having all of her friends in college while she lives on her own for the first time without any real support system.
When she first moved to New York City, Allie lived in a women's residence in Greenwich Village. She also has been working at her uncle's dance studio while taking various acting, singing and dance classes. Allie loves Chai tea, thunderstorms and actors Matt Damon and George Clooney.
Allie says her involvement in Grease has been surreal, especially after speaking show creator, Jim Jacobs, at Grease Academy, but it hasn't been as nerve-wracking as she thought it would be. When asked how she thought the show would change her life, Allie said, "A lot…because millions of people will know who I am. This is the perfect thing for me…I need a creative outlet."
