Deanna has dreamt of playing Donna Sheridan since she saw the Broadway production of Mamma Mia! ten years ago. She currently resides in Amarillo, Texas, but has happily made the commute to fulfill her dream.
She is a graduate of West Texas A & M University, and is currently the business owner of The Ruffled Cup in Amarillo and Lubbock, and her newest endeavor, Butterlove Biscuits. She is also a busy mom to three teenagers, Gracie, Bradley, & Colby.
Deanna has been in more than a dozen productions in Amarillo, such as, Smokey Joe’s Café, Grease, Sister Act, and her favorite, Little Shop of Horrors. She has also had the pleasure of singing among many praise and worship teams and church choirs.
She wants to thank her wonderful husband, David, “for being my travel-mate, my rock, and my best friend.” She dedicates this performance to her beautiful mom, who “taught me from an early age to love music and performing, and pushes me to never give up on my dreams.”
