Natalie Blalock Jennings

Theatre Instructor

Natalie Blalock moved to NYC directly after graduating from High School in Apopka, FL to attend the summer program at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. During that time she was encouraged by her singing teacher to audition for The American Musical and Dramatic Academy from where she graduated 2 years later. She received her equity card right here in NE Ohio from the Carousel Dinner Theatre (thank you Joey Patton). Natalie was most recently seen playing one of her dream roles (Mama Rose) in this summers production of GYPSY at the Beck Center for Performing Arts in Lakewood, OH. Some of her favorite shows have included Paper Moon (Miss Trixie Delight) at Ford’s Theater, The Scarlet Pimpernel (Helen/Chanteuse) Broadway , Houdini (Madame Tolka/Wilma) at Goodspeed Opera House, The Little Mermaid (Ursula) at Beck Center for the Performing Arts, Annie (Miss Hannigan) at Bucks County Playhouse and Ladies and Gentlemen Natalie Blalock (Herself) at Joe’s Pub, The Public Theatre, NYC. Other wonderful experiences include the T.V. shows Strangers with Candy (Edie Harley) “The Bully” episode, THE O.C. (Gail VanDeepen) and Eve (Mrs. Garris). Natalie is a grateful member of Actor’s Equity and SAG.
