Zoe Salina Zamora
Teen actor storms local theater scene
The Mesa resident and freshman at Red Mountain High School is ready for the world and the big stage. At 15, and with a G.P.A. of 4.17, Zoe is hard at work to become a triple dare, further developing her singing, dancing and acting.
In just the past four years, she has participated in twenty theatrical productions. Most recently, in May, 2012, she played the role of Scout Finch in Hale Centre Theatre’s production of Harper Lee’s American classic, To Kill a Mockingbird. In April, she played the role of The Little Girl in Mesa Encore Theatre’s Ragtime Remount; and in March of this year, she performed the role of Baby Louise in Gypsy, produced by Phoenix Theatre. She has also participated in productions staged by Fountain Hills Community Theater, Tempe Little Theatre, Greasepaint Youtheatre, Valley Youth Theatre, Actors Youth Theatre, ASU Gammage, and Mesa Community College. Her acting has been noticed by local critics; she has been nominated three times to the AriZoni Excellence in Theater Awards (in 2009, 2010 and 2011).
In addition to receiving private voice and dance instruction, Zamora has also furthered her training by participating in courses and programs offered by Childsplay, Mesa Community College, and Phoenix Theatre’s inaugural Musical Theatre Conservatory.
Her goals for 2012? Continue to do well in school, and audition for musical theatre opportunities outside of Arizona.
Break a leg, Zoe!
