Biography

Andrea Ross was born in Dover, New Hampshire, the daughter of William and Paula. In elementary school she took a variety of lessons in music, dance and also played sports, but it was enrollment at Franklin School for the Performing Arts that won out. Ross progressed quickly from ensemble roles to lead musical theater roles on-stage. Encouraged by her enthusiasm, her parents allowed her to travel to Boston to audition for a professional family theater. She won the lead role in "Tuck Everlasting" at the Wheelock Family Theater at age 10. This was the beginning of a five-year continuous string of winning lead roles and critical praise from the Boston-area press and theater community. Her middle and elementary school educations occurred at the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School (B.F.C.C.P.S.) and the Davis Thayer School respectively, both located in Franklin, Massachusetts. She graduated in 2009 from Noble and Greenough School, in Dedham, Massachusetts and currently attends Pace University.

Stage career

On May 23, 2005, Ross became the youngest person to receive Boston's prestigious Elliot Norton Award for Outstanding Actress. In her nominating remarks on Ross' behalf, Terry Byrne, theatre critic of the Boston Herald commented: "Stage presence is that ineffable quality some performers have to command an audience's attention, sometimes before they even begin to speak ... Combine that with considerable acting talent, a magnificent singing voice, and a strong sense of focus and the star quality is undeniable."

Ross has been a member of the Actors' Equity Association professional union since 2006.
