Yates

Actor . Singer . Dancer

Samantha Yates (she/her) is an actress from Dallas, TX. She is currently a senior BFA Musical Theatre major at the University of Miami where she has trained in classical and contemporary theater, dance, stage combat, improv, and voice.

At an early age, Samantha took the motto “everything is bigger in Texas” and let it influence everything about her until she became the bold and bubbly performer she is today. Whether it was playing the lead role of herself in home videos or on stage as a tapping pink poodle, there was no doubt that entertaining and performing was something she was born to do.

In her free time, Samantha enjoys travelling, trying out new recipes and restaurants, perfecting her skincare routine, and giggling with her girlfriends. If offered a one-way ticket, Samantha would grab her YiaYia and head for the Greek isles for a hot plate of moussaka. After college, Samantha plans to relocate to New York City to pursue live theatre as well as film and television.
