"The young actors were just like adults. They always helped to inspire moments that I was worried would feel stale. Alison was always joking around making me laugh. It was a real collaboration."
Alison Jaye’s path to Broadway began when she was 11 years old, on the stage of her
local library, barely three and a half feet tall, wearing a full nun’s habit and a cross almost
half her size, singing “Climb Every Mountain” from The Sound of Music. A few months
later, Alison was auditioning for Stephen Sondheim. She was cast as Louise/Bather in
Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway revival of Sondheim’s Sunday in the Park
with George. Immediately thereafter, Alison assumed the role of Jane Banks in
Broadway’s Mary Poppins. Since then, Alison returned to school full-time, but continued
to focus her attention on honing her craft in theatre and film. Alison is a recent BFA
graduate of the University of Southern California’s School of Dramatic Arts, and a proud member of both AEA and SAG/AFTRA.
