With a career both in front of the scenes and behind them in the Entertainment Industry, performing on hundreds of stages in North America, working for a major talent buyer, major talent agencies, a major music company, a production company, and a management company, there is no kind of creative environment Sarah Donaldson does not enjoy. Her goal
in life is simple... to create smiles and laughter through everything she does to make everyone's life a little more entertaining.
2006, The Catholic University of America featured her as the fifth and youngest
alumni to be honored in their monthly feature, “Alumni Spotlight.” As a
Musical Theatre major earning a Bachelor of Music degree, Sarah attended CUA on
both academic and music scholarships, was a member of the honors program, and studied
at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. Additionally, she was
already performing on professional stages in college when she played
Ursula in "Bye, Bye Birdie" at the Olney Theatre in Maryland and
joined the Equity Membership Candidate program of the Actors' Equity
college, the Philadelphia native returned home to play the Maid of Honor in
"Tony N' Tina's Wedding," interned at South Jersey's NBC40 in news
reporting, and commuted to NYC for auditions. It wasn't long before she landed
a dream role as Jan, one of the Pink Ladies, in the 2003-2004 North American
Broadway Tour of "Grease" performing alongside other Philly natives
Frankie Avalon and Chubby Checker. Over
one hundred cities later, Sarah settled in Williamsburg, Virginia for the 2005
season at Busch Gardens Europe singing "Mambo Italiano" and
performing other classic Italian songs and dances in "Holiday in
Roma." In early 2006, she returned
back to Philadelphia and worked steadily in various films and TV shows locally
and in NYC to become a member of the Screen Actors Guild. Some of her
favorite credits include being a stand-in for Rocky's girlfriend in "Rocky
Balboa," an Eagles' wife in "Invincible," and a featured dancer
in "Step Up." Additionally, she can be seen as a lead dancer in Cascada's "Everytime We
Touch" music video as the song spent weeks at the top of the charts in 2006 and has been viewed over 52 million times.
2006 and 2007, Donaldson left the spotlight to gain experience behind the
scenes in Atlantic City as a Regional Entertainment Coordinator for Harrah's,
Caesars, Bally's, and Showboat including House of Blues. There, she worked on headlining acts like Jay
Leno, Rachel Ray, Tony Bennett, Sheryl Crow, and Carrie Underwood.
relocated from the East Coast to Los Angeles at the start of 2008, she worked
as an Executive Assistant at high profile talent agencies like ICM and MPI,
Universal Music Group, Azoffmusic Management, and 51 Minds. Most notably,
she's worked for the Senior Music and TV agents for Aretha, Ringo, and Vanessa
Williams, to name a few of the many.
2009, she surpassed thousands to make it into the top 25 on the web
based reality competition show for actors, "Hellbent For
Hollywood." Additionally, she joined AFTRA and worked for a year as
a regular office worker for "Mad Style," the fashion company on
"True Jackson, VP."
2010, she worked an assistant at TalentWorks, continuing to learn about what it
takes to become an agent while working for both established and emerging
talent. In her spare time, she started performing at The World Famous
Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard remembering that if she isn't making people
laugh and smile that she hasn't lived her life to the fullest. Her fun
personality and social networking skills also brought her Facebook page to a
maxxed out status with over a 1,000 pending friend requests, showing that she
must have something special and contagious that you should try to catch... if
2012, she relocated back to the Philadelphia area to be near family once again and, coming into 2013, Sarah has had some fun on television
competition shows. First, she made it to
the live celebrity judges audition round for Season 2 of “The X Factor.” Then, she had the time of her life when she was a contestant on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" during Disney's "Cruise in and Win Week."
Now, into 2016, she continues to be eager to take her talents to the next level and looks forward to hearing from Entertainment Industry professionals who would like to work with her. She has proven that with a strong and solid foundation in the arts nurtured throughout her life and career, it seems that there are no limits to where her roots are capable of reaching and nothing that isn't able to be accomplished with hard work and determination.
Thanks for visiting & come back soon!
Sarah would love to hear from you:
