Alina Alcantara Biography

Alina is a New York native of Dominican heritage, who has lived in Florida for most of her life. Some of her recent credits include Mom in Jack & the Beanstalk at Orlando Shakes, Deb in Elf: The Musical at Orlando Repertory Theatre (The REP), Abuela Claudia in In The Heights at Orlando Shakes, Tia Emilia/Bruja Buena in EL WIZ at the 2018 Orlando Fringe Festival, and Gloria the Hippo in Madagascar: A Musical Adventure at Orlando Repertory Theatre (The REP). She also has a recurring role performing as Celestina Warbeck in Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando. A proud ally of the LGBTQ+ community, Alina has also been actively involved around the local community: FAB FRINGE FUNDRAISER 2019, 2018 Orlando Citrus Parade, Come Out With Pride 2018, MBA Orlando Pride in Business Gala 2018, and the Pulse Remembrance Ceremony at the Pulse Memorial, among other special events. Alina is most known for the role that began her career in theater: Abuela Claudia in Greater Orlando Actors' Theater production of In The Heights (2015), earning rave reviews from the Orlando Sentinel - and other local media, like this excerpt from BroadwayWorld Orlando's review: ...Alcantara gives a near-perfect performance as everyone's Abuela Claudia. Not only does she convey the wisdom, grace, and humor of her character, but she does so with such innate charisma that you feel as if this role had been written especially for her. She has a tremendous voice; especially as she delivers her revelatory performance of "Paciencia y Fe." Alcantara communicates a deep insight, not only into Claudia, but, into the characters that she shares the stage with as well. Her performance alone, is worth the price of admission.
