Sara Ornelas

Actor, Musician, Combatant, Voiceover

"Sara Ornelas’s Maria is naive and her longing and love palpable, too, but more so in her nuanced acting." Revue

"Other standout performances include Ornelas's dynamic huge voice and energy in the big gospel number “Bless The Lord” as well as her opening of Act II in which she single-handedly reprises the entirety of Act I with flair." 


"Sara Ornelas convincingly plays masculine roles with phenomenal energy and physicality, from comical fight scenes to shoulder stands on slanted platforms..she’s a marvel to watch." Revue

"As Ornelas sings, she is not the Frida as we know her. Ornelas perfectly captures the character: exuberant, feisty, and sincere. We can see that her fireball energy is generated from pain, both physical and emotional." Theasy

Sara Ornelas was born and raised deep in the heart of Texas, and wears her Latin roots proudly. She sang at every opportunity at church and usually played Satan. When she found theater, she drove 6 hours north and received her BFA at the University of Houston. She’s performed in Amarillo, lived in the 1700’s, and fought D’Artagnan in fifteen countries. Her New York Debut was with the Exquisite Corpse Company as Frida Kahlo in A Ribbon About A Bomb, and most recently played Maria in West Side Story at Hope Summer Reperatory Theater. If she’s not watching The Great British Baking Show she’s roller skating, reading, or baking for her roommates.
