Sam Schrader, Stepsister
A native of Farmington, CT, Sam Schrader grew up taking voice lessons and attending musical theatre intensives at the University of Hartford Hartt School. After studying Music and Environmental Science at Vassar College, he took on New York City and quickly booked a national tour of The Wizard of Oz. Soon after, he followed regional work in the tri-state area including a summer at Ivoryton Playhouse during which he played Corny Collins in one of his favorite musicals, Hairspray!
Yearning for adventure, Sam moved to Santa Fe, NM, where he found a wealth of work as a singing server in a local restaurant, a lead soloist in a number of community and church choirs, and even as an ensemble member in opera works. Schrader recently moved back to his home state and since has worked with Playhouse on Park in West Hartford and is excited to perform in his first ballet with Ballet Theatre Company.
