Alumni Spotlight – Charlotte d’Amboise

For our SAB Alumni Spotlight this month we spoke to Broadway star Charlotte d’Amboise, who shared how her SAB training provided her with the technique and work ethic that allowed her to excel as a performer. With parents Jacques d’Amboise and Carolyn George – also both SAB alumni – it’s no surprise that Charlotte and her siblings all trained at the School. Watch as she explains how she wanted her own daughters to have that same special experience too…

Ms. d’Amboise has been gracing Broadway stages for decades. Since making her Broadway debut in CATS, Charlotte has been nominated for two Tony Awards for her performances in the Broadway revival of A CHORUS LINE (Cassie) and Jerome Robbins’ BROADWAY (multiple roles). She has also won numerous Fred Astaire Awards for her roles in PIPPIN (Fastrada), SWEET CHARITY (Charity), and DAMN YANKEES (Lola). Most recently, she has been seen in the role of Roxie in CHICAGO, that has earned her the LA Ovation Award, the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award and the San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Award. Charlotte has also appeared in the Broadway casts of COMPANY, CONTACT, CARRIE, and SONG AND DANCE. Additionally, she has appeared in featured roles in several films and TV shows.

Throughout her career onstage, she has worked alongside several legendary directors including, Jerome Robbins, Michael Bennett, Rob Marshall, Ann Reinking, Debbie Allen, Gillian Lynn, Rob Ashford, Diane Paulus, Walter Bobbie, Scott Ellis, and George Balanchine.
