MORE ABOUT ANNIKA STENSTEDT

Annika Stenstedt (she/her) is a New York based, California raised actor and musical theatre writer/composer. She is a recent graduate of NYU, where she earned her BFA in Drama from Tisch School of the Arts, studying with the Stella Adler Studio of Acting and New Studio on Broadway. Acting credits include Bandstand (Mrs. Adams), Stage Door (Judith, Pat), Legally Blonde (Kate, u/s Vivienne), and Head over Heels (Ensemble, u/s Pamela). Annika is the author of two original musicals, the first of which (titled Who We Are: The Reality of Now, a story about the pressures of high school and graduation) was completed and produced by the end of her senior year of high school. She also recently joined Pixel Playhouse (as seen on Youtube and Tiktok) as a lyricist, with her first projects expected to be released early this year. ROSIE: A New Musical is a project that stems from Annika's desire, as a female musical theatre writer, to create shows about complex and powerful women, for a creative community that has been historically dominated by men. A short excerpt of ROSIE was presented as part of the New Studio on Broadway's 2022 Freeplay Festival, but Annika is ecstatic to debut most of the score on March 31st, the last night of Women's History Month at 54 Below.
