Julia Suriano, born and raised in Hatfield Massachusetts, made the move to The Big Apple to earn her Bachelor of Music Degree from Manhattan School of Music in classical voice performance.
A two-time ASCAP award winner for “excellence and promise in musical theater”, Suriano has been praised by critics for her “chillingly beautiful” voice starring as Maria in West Side Story both at the award-winning Fireside Theatre in Wisconsin and New Hampshire’s Interlakes Theatre. Reviews said, “Her voice is flawless, her acting, too. I doubt anyone could find a more perfect casting.” (Rock River Times) and “The shining light of this production is the incomparable Julia Suriano… Suriano’s portrayal of Maria is not to be missed as she is hands down one of the best vocalists Interlakes Theatre has ever had.” (Onstage.com)
In addition to acting, she has performed in various concerts in the ensemble with The New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall, as a Soprano Scholar at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, and as a soloist at The Kennedy Center with MSM’s chamber choir. Other regional credits include Cosette in Les Miserables with Red Mountain Theatre Company and most recently this summer returned to Interlakes Theatre to take on the role of Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady!
