As a queer, genderfluid, and non-binary person, Allegra is a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community. Their pronouns are they/them. (Learn more about pronouns here). They feel comfortable and affirmed voicing characters and narrators across the gender spectrum, including those who identify as non-binary and women.
Fun Fact! Allegra’s first acting role at the age of 12 was as Jafar in Aladdin Jr. so she’s been smashing gender roles since adolescence! One of Allegra’s 6th grade teachers even said “She is versatile and by far, the BEST Jafar this musical has ever seen!”
Allegra enjoys using their acting talent, vocal range, and unique perspective to breathe life into multi-dimensional characters, tell captivating stories, and amplify important messages.
Storytelling and performance have been a through-line in Allegra’s life. Born in Brooklyn, they were raised in Shaker Heights, Ohio by a family of modern dancers. Summers were spent watching as many cartoons as possible and assisting their parents with dance workshops for adults and children with disabilities. This early experience instilled in them a drive to create art that helps others.
Allegra grew up acting, dancing, and writing plays, leading them to study playwriting and screenwriting at SUNY Purchase College and earn their B.A. in Women & Gender Studies from Hunter College. Throughout and after college, they volunteered and worked for a wide range of organizations that advance justice for low-income communities of color and LGBTQ+ folks. Allegra cares deeply about incorporating this commitment to liberation, safety, and joy for marginalized communities in everything they do, including voiceover and acting.
Acting throughout middle and high school, college, and beyond, theater and acting has remained one of Allegra’s greatest passions. Most recently, they have enjoyed acting in plays produced by Breaking & Entering Theatre Collective and Theater Accident.
Allegra has loved diving into voiceover in the past few years and learning the ins and outs of all VO genres from Elizabeth Bunnell, Jen Sukup, Erica Schroeder, Ed Lewis, Andy Roth, Roger Becker, Carrie Faverty, Paul Liberti, Darren Dunstan, Jason Sasportas, and Julia Schoeffling.
Allegra enjoys all genres of voiceover, particularly animation and video games. They have continued to be infatuated with cartoons and animated storytelling, especially as shows like The Legend of Korra, Steven Universe, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, and The Dragon Prince are centering BIPOC and LGBTQ+ voices that are too often erased in children’s media. It is Allegra’s dream to voice characters in cartoons and video games that make LGBTQ+ young people feel seen and affirmed.
Allegra is a proud member of Blue Wave Voiceover, a collective of progressive, political voice actors who look and sound like America today. They also enjoy working on the other side of the mic as Blue Wave’s Virtual Assistant!
