Salutations! I’m Chala and your Fun Feisty Americanized Latina. Americanized because I was born in Jersey and raised in Kansas by my firecracker of a Latina mom but taught common sense by my Italian-Irish father.
I moved from NYC to attend Chicago’s SECOND CITY’S Conservatory program. After the freeze burn, I decided to venture West to LA and I was ever so grateful to land the role of brassy Daniela in my dream musical “IN THE HEIGHTS” at two venues; one used the original Tony Award winning choreography. This year, BARBERSHOP 3 premiered which I shot in Atlanta, GA directed by Malcom Lee. And on January 10th, SOY NERO premiers directed by Rafi Pitts. Other credits this year include THE 11TH (Dr. Cho) SOUL (Linda), DAYS OF OUR LIVES (Mrs. Carter), MAKE AMERICA GREAT (Margarita) and EL BULLY (Serena), and a wonderful production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s revival version of “CINDERELLA”. I was cast as Charlotte, the snooty & sassy stepsister of Cinderella….who never gets the prince.
