Annabelle Fox is a CT native, Nashville grad., and current NYC actress. She grew up in Wilton, performing in all the shows through Wilton Children's Theatre, Wilton High School, The Wilton Playshop, and Center Stage Theatre Company in Westport. Following graduation from WHS she moved to Nashville, TN to attend Belmont University to pursuit a BFA in Musical Theatre. It was there she discovered her true voice, honed her abilities, perfected the Southern accent, developed an appreciation for Whiskey, met her now husband, and best friends for life. In January 2015 she moved to NYC to follow her dreams... and she is still going after them. Since then she has appeared in many musicals, workshops, and plays on stages from the Paper Mill Playhouse to The Old Town Hall. Favorite credits include: Kathy Selden (Singin' in the Rain), Magnolia (Showboat), Chava (Fiddler on the Roof), and Thea (Spring Awakening). When she's not bouncing around for different contracts, you can find her strolling through Inwood Hill Park, any/all Farmers Markets, gazing at puppies in the window, or being an expert child wrangler. She is a founding member of the New York Theatre Club, Silent Planet, counterpart to a folk duo with her husband, Fiddler & the Fox, woman behind NYC'S newest blog, Actor Meets Coffee, and Abigail King in the upcoming musical, Johnny & the Devil's Box. Her mission in life is to bring joy to people through performance and a hot cup of coffee. Romans 12:2. Annabellefox.com
