HANNAH LOUISE FERNANDES is a New York City based Equity Membership Candidate actress, singer and dancer, who has performed roles, ranging from "Jasmine" in the brand new production of DISNEY'S WHEN YOU WISH, "Carrie Pipperidge" in a fully staged concert of CAROUSEL (Music Theatre Wichita/Wichita Symphony) to "Velma" in CHICAGO (directed by Stephen Kopel of Roundabout Theatre Company), in addition to her work in the resident ensemble of MTWichita's 2015-2017 summer seasons.
Originally from La Crosse, Wisconsin, she accompanied her BFA in Musical Theatre from Wichita State University by studying at CAP 21 and Goodspeed Musicals, under great artists such as Randy Skinner, Kelli Barclay, Bill Daugherty and Randy Redd. She is currently studying at the prestigious Maggie Flanigan Studio in New York City.
Most recently you could have seen her as "Jasmine" in Disney's When You Wish and as "Rosalia" in West Side Story at Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma.
Hannah is an old soul, but don’t mistake her for someone who’s “got the dream but not the guts”. She is an artist but also a fiercely passionate and engaged advocate for activism. She believes if you want to make the world a better place, you have to actively participate and she does that by volunteering and helping her community register to vote. She also conceived and produced a cabaret, featuring female performers, as a desire to raise awareness about sexual assault, in which all proceeds were donated to a local women’s shelter.
She balances her life through painting, writing and watching as many documentaries as she can.
