‘Olivia and Friends’ share delightful song stylings
Sutter Street Theatre and Allen Schmeltz Productions present Olivia Kaufmann in concert.
Sixteen-year-old Olivia was born and raised in El Dorado Hills. She started performing in musical theatre at the age of 9 and since then has acquired a wide range of experience performing with community theatres throughout the Sacramento region, including Sacramento Theatre Company 2, Chautauqua Playhouse in Carmichael, Magic Circle in Roseville, Sutter Street Theatre, Rocklin Community Theatre and El Dorado Musical Theatre.
Olivia has also performed with the Sacramento Theatre’s Young Professional’s Conservatory in Washington, D.C., and as a featured singer in their Broadway Cabaret in 2008 as well as appearances as a national anthem singer for the Sacramento River Cats and other venues in the Sacramento area. In November 2008 she was named as Sacramento Magazine’s “Best Little Girl with a Big Voice” and she earned an Elly Award for her performance in “Smile, The Musical” with the Rocklin Youth Theatre Company in September 2008.
Recent roles have been in El Dorado Musical Theatre’s production of “Hairspray” as Lil Inez, Sutter Street Theatre’s production of “13, the Musical” as Kendra and Rocklin Community Theatre’s production of “Footloose” as Rusty.
In Olivia’s words, “If I had to choose one thing I could not live without, that would be singing!”
