Amelia Jo Parish is honored to be fighting the patriarchy alongside the Firebrand team! Amelia studied Musical Theatre for two years at the Webster Conservatory, before transferring to Drury University where she is currently pursuing a degree in History and Gender Studies. An actress and teaching artist based out of NYC, she has performed with such theaters as The Muny, The Paramount, and The Goodspeed Opera House. In her spare time she enjoys caffeinating, learning new things (currently that includes developing her meditation and yo-yo-ing skills–occasionally at the same time!), and consulting with her dog/life coach, Fred.
“It is important to empower women, (and every person that society continues to other) through Theatre because perhaps in doing so, we can encourage people to do the same in their every day lives, on and off the stage. I am a Firebrand because everyone deserves to be celebrated.”
