​Krista Buccellato

Krista grew up in Queens, New York.  Her parents' insistence on limiting childhood TV intake to classic movies and musicals explains a lot of things; including (but not limited to) her love of theatre, and why she's never seen "The Goonies" or "The Sandlot."

A proud graduate of Emerson College in Boston, she now calls New York home.  Krista has traveled the country playing Wendy Darling opposite Cathy Rigby in "Peter Pan," and as an understudy for Christine Daaé on tour with the spectacular new production of "The Phantom of the Opera."

Offstage, she is a devout bookworm and foodie.  She has a silly talent for rhyming, which she uses to write children's stories and whimsical poems for her friends and family.  

She feels supremely grateful for every opportunity that has come her way, and looks forward to future adventures.
