Sarah Elizabeth Combs
Vocalist / Performer / Entertainer
Sarah has always felt at home on the stage, and ever since she could remember she has loved to perform. Even as a toddler, she thrived on expressing her talents through music and dance. Her parents, who shared her love of the arts, introduced the young Sarah to old Hollywood Musicals as well as an eclectic assortment of music. Sarah would act out all of the ingénue roles, and her family would oblige her insistence to, “Sit down, I’m gonna do a show!” Growing up in Southern California, Sarah had access to the music, film, and theatrical arts prevalent to the area. Sarah began formal vocal training at the young age of nine. She began her theatrical work as a child in several regional and community theatre productions as well as film/tv commercials in Los Angeles. At age seventeen, she was awarded a scholarship to attend the Idyllwild Arts Academy where she studied musical theatre as well as classical voice. Upon completion, she was accepted to the prestigious Eastman School of Music in New York as a Vocal Performance Major. After attending Eastman, Sarah moved back to Southern California to pursue a lifetime career in musical theatre. She has performed for regional theatre companies across the LA and San Diego areas, including: Musical Theatre West, CLO of South Bay Cities, Reprise, Candlelight Pavillion, Performance Riverside, San Bernardino CLO, The Welk Resort Theatre, Moonlight Stage Productions and Starlight Theatre. Beginning in 2010, Sarah spent over two years in Phantom of The Opera in Las Vegas where she had the honor of playing Christine Daee. She then spent another couple of years honing her comedy chops in the company of I Love Lucy Live On Stage, performing nightly as Woman One and understudy to the iconic role of Lucy Ricardo. Some of Sarah’s most treasured roles include: the title role of Mary Poppins, Maria in The Sound of Music, Laurey in Oklahoma, Cosette in Les Miserables, Johanna in Sweeney Todd (which earned her an Ovation Nomination), Christine in Yeston/Kopit’s Phantom, Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, Cinderella in Into The Woods, and Miss Dorothy in Thoroughly Modern Millie. Currently, Sarah has the great pleasure of sailing the high seas as the lead female vocalist aboard six-star luxury liner, Crystal Serenity. She is grateful to God, her family, and friends for their unfailing support of all her endeavors. Sarah is a proud member of Actor’s Equity Association.
"Laurey here is the captivating Sarah Elizabeth Combs a staple of San Diego area musical theater making a memorable L.A. debut as the object of Curly’s not quite hidden affection. Saucy, sweet, and girl-next-door sexy, the raven-tressed Combs sings gorgeously, …and a classic musical theater star quality that should lead to many more L.A. leading roles."
"Combs follows her star-making turn in last month’s Oklahoma! with another winning performance as Rose, and what a gorgeous soprano she has!"
"Sarah Elizabeth Combs brings a lovely voice and understated humor to the reluctantly pursued Cinderella."
"The lovely Ms. Combs (and her high C) is a very strong argument for the return of operetta."
"Ms. Combs, she of the frequently dazzling soprano, shows a different side to her voice right from the start with a strong, belty rendition of the early Berlin charmer, “Let Me Sing and I’m Happy."
