Sarah Jebian started performing at the tender age of 5 when her brother (a professional pianist & conductor) started a children's performing group. Although she somehow managed to zig when all the other kids zagged, she was nonetheless bitten by the performing bug and so began a life-long journey into the arts. From that inauspicious beginning, she started taking ballet classes with the vision of someday becoming a prima ballerina with a famous ballet company. That dream was not to be. Sarah ended up breaking her back when she was 15. Although heartbroken (and back-broken) at the time, she soon discovered her voice and it was not long before she was auditioning for and getting cast in her high school musicals and community theater productions. She got her first professional acting job when she was 17 and she went on the road with a national touring production of Charlotte's Web in which she played Charlotte. Sarah has been working professionally ever since.
In a career that spans over 20 years, this award-winning singer & actress has been seen by audiences from New York to Alaska and everywhere in between. Sarah's New York credits include:The Sound of Music (Paper Mill Playhouse), A Night on the Town (Don't Tell Mama), Avalon (world premiere), Mother Wove the Morning (NY premiere) and her own cabaret act Goin' Back (The Duplex). National tours include Anne of Green Gables, Salem Justice, Charlotte's Web and Sleeping Beauty. Regional theater credits include Man of La Mancha (Aldonza), On the Town (Claire), Phantom! (Belladova, Carlotta u/s), Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Narrator) and Annie (Grace Farrell).
Sarah was named Best Dramatic Actress in the 1993 National Showcase Awards. In the 2006 Spotlight On! Awards, she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the world premiere of "Avalon" in New York City and she won first place in the 2002 San Francisco NATS Annual Festival Competition.
In addition to her performing career, Sarah is a director, producer, choreographer and teacher of voice & dance. Her debut album, "Love Songs & Lullabies" is due to be released on April 20th, 2012. Sarah is currently working on a new cabaret act that she hopes to premiere in the fall of 2012.
