Deanna Doyle is the fourth generation in her family to be a performer, beginning with her two great-great- aunts who had a sister act on the vaudeville circuit. She danced with the Kansas City Ballet, dancing numerous principal and soloist roles in ballets choreographed by legends such as Agnes de Mille, Donald McKayle, Twyla Tharp, and Paul Taylor. She studied tap and jazz with her mother and trained at the School of American Ballet and American Ballet Theater. She made her Broadway debut as Meg Giry in Phantom of the Opera, performed as Ivy Smith in Barrington Stage’s On the Town, and most recently was nominated for an Astaire Award for playing 17-year-old Winnie in Broadway’s Tuck Everlasting. She has performed at the Astaire Awards, Career Transition for Dancers, and has appeared in national commercials such as Tide and Twix. When not performing, she teaches at Broadway Dance Center and is thrilled to return for another season at Joffrey.
