Robyn Payne Biography

Robyn Payne is a singer, actor, and producer who loves to facilitate powerful experiences for her audiences.

She studied Opera at Indiana University's prestigious School of Music, where her love for performing began to shift. She decided that it might be good for to learn to act and dance a bit. So she made the transition from the School of Music to the Department of Theatre and Drama.

"There is something that I can't quite describe about how it feels to have a powerful affect on audiences. The role that seemed to affect people the most deeply was when I played Kala in Disney's Tarzan. I was nominated for an IRNE award for Best Supporting Actress in a musical for playing Tarzan's adopted ape mother. But what I find amazing is how many people come up to tell me what singing "You'll Be In My Heart," did for them. Some people told me that it made them think of their mother who had just passed. Others said that it reminded them of the way they felt when they first held their adopted their children. A woman even threw a bouquet of flowers to me onstage during the curtain call. (That is not something that I would have EVER imagined would happen to me, in real life.)"

After performing on Broadway and in regional theatres, as well as on numerous Television Shows, she still felt an itch for something more. She produced a concert by raising over $5000 on IndieGoGo.com, in 2013, with a band of 7 (including trumpet and violin) and 3 back-up singers.

by Carla Maria Verdino-S√ľllwold - Mar 10, 2018

Portland Stage's current production of Michael Hollinger's 2000 noir comedy set in the Cold War era skillfully weaves a tapestry of three love stories and one murder against the backdrop of McCarthyism, nuclear bombs, 50s pop culture, and zany shenanigans - all of which makes for a delightful, fast-paced evening of nostalgic wit.
