This Memorial Day, catch me in Theatre Now New York's SOUND BITES Festival!!  

Cooking For Two -  "It's the first season finale of Food Network's latest, Tasty Time with Jenny and Brett - but as the cameras roll, the eponymous couple's cheery facade starts to crack. When Jenny tries to end the show in a desperate bid to save their marriage, Brett must confront a terrifying choice: relationship or career?"

Book & Lyrics by Charlie O'Leary. Music by Karl Hinze. Directed by Tasha Gordon-Solmon

I play the "Nameless PA" who is tasked with keeping alive a failing cooking show and marriage.  I get to wear a headset. It's truly a dream role.

Ellis Island: Gateway to a Dream

Words can't express how happy I was to step back into the shoes of Hjordis, a role I originated three years ago! 

On short notice, and with only a two hour rehearsal, I returned to tell this classic tale of immigrants passing through Ellis Island in the early 1900s.  

Many thanks to Sundog Theatre and the entire staff at Ramapo College of New Jersey.

 

Ninya & Hjordis Forever <3

Good Boys And True

I'm excited to announce I'm playing the part of Justin in Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's Good Boys and True going up at the Gene Frankel Theatre! 

Reviews:  "...the strongest of the bunch...  Amenta gave Justin profundity and charm. As the outcast of the school, you could see why Brandon was magnetized by him. But beyond that, Amenta didn’t play into any stereotypes. He made Justin authentic." - Theater In The Now

Returning to the Williamstown Theatre Festival!

WTF!  I'm returning to the Berkshires to star in Samuel Hunter's A Great Wilderness, as Daniel, a frail, intimidated, quick witted gay teen sent to a conversion therapy camp in Idaho.  

Reviews: "... a touching and affecting Stephan Amenta... You sense in Amenta's Daniel the fragility of a trusting youth who is bewildered, afraid, made timid and cautious by a young life marked by rejection and disgust from others" - The Berkshire Eagle
