Meet Stacia Fernandez
We Welcome Stacia Fernandez to the Cast of Mamma Mia as Tanya!
I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia where I was the youngest of 4 girls. Being the youngest, I was always the loudest as I was trying to get people to hear me. I guess that's why I am an actor now!
I spent 5 years doing Mamma Mia on Broadway in the ensemble and playing both roles of Rosie and Tanya. So, you would think this was an easy transition for me. Joyful yes! Easy no! All new blocking and choreography make it necessary to erase some pretty old hard drives. That makes it quite a challenge, but a fun one!
I've worked up here at the WBT many times before, but it's been several years and I'm thrilled to be back. It's like coming home.
As far as musical movies go, I surely do appreciate the idea. I think it promotes a love of the art form to a lot of people who never appreciated a good musical before. I look forward to seeing the prequel of Mamma Mia!
I loved playing Grizabella in CATS up here, and playing Mrs. Anna in The King and I. I would play Mrs. Anna again in a minute. I would also love to revisit Diana in Next to Normal, one of my all-time favorite shows that I've done. Also, I can't wait to play Mrs. Lovett, the Witch in Into the Woods, and Mama Rose in Gypsy somewhere soon. In addition, I just did Night of the Iguana with James Earl Jones. Let me tell you, that was a dream come true!
