Abby Boudreaux, Voice
Abby Boudreaux is a native of New Iberia, Louisiana, where her love of music and art blossomed at an early age. In elementary school, she became part of the Talented program for visual arts. By the time she reached high school, she was in the Talented program for all three disciplines of art, music, and theatre. With seven years of private piano lessons and years of the Talented program under her belt, Abby discovered her true love was singing and acting. She then decided to pursue a career in voice. Abby went on to study Vocal Music Education at UL Lafayette, learning the importance of technique and healthy singing. Upon graduation in 2013, she moved to Orlando, Florida, where she performed at the Walt Disney World Resort and interned with the Orlando Children's Choir during its start-up year. Abby discovered her new love and passion for choral music through her experience with the Orlando Children's Choir. This inspired her to move back to the city of Lafayette where she is now teaching music and chorus at Prairie Elementary School.
Today, Abby is active in the community theatre scene, recently performing the roles of Joanne in Godspell, Wednesday in The Addams Family, and Olive Ostrovsky in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. She recently won a Rosie Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her role in The Addams Family. When not on stage, she enjoys sharing her talents by vocal directing, costume designing, and set/prop construction. She has worked with many local theatre companies, both on and off stage, including Iberia Performing Arts League, the Riveters, and the board of Acting Unlimited. During the summer months, Abby vocally directs production camps for Kidz Kabaret, where children discover the art and responsibility of theatre at an early age.
With years of studying music and creative expression, Abby is thrilled to watch her students grow into confident musicians and performers.
