Arielle Handler

Arielle Handler is a 13-year old actor, singer and dancer. While she has been singing and dancing since the age of 2, she first got involved in acting at the age of 7, when she was asked to be the youngest member of a local youth acting troupe. She has since trained in musical theatre, on-camera acting, voice-over and improv.  She has performed with various theatre companies, including the Growing Stage-Children’s Theatre of NJ and Mayo Performing Arts Center, with some of her favorite roles being “Wendy” in Peter Pan, “Flounder” in Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Jr. and “Grace Smythe/Fan” in A Christmas Carol: The Musical. In addition, Arielle has had the extreme pleasure of performing as “Snake” in the World Premiere of Children of Eden, Jr. for composer Stephen Schwartz.

 

Arielle takes her training seriously and has studied voice, acting and various styles of dance in both NJ and NY. She has also participated in master classes with esteemed members of the theatre community including Alice Ripley, Dominic Scaglione, Jr., Cady Huffman, Christian Borle and Jeff Shade, as well as industry professionals including Merri Sugarman, Bob Cline and Patrick Goodwin. She is especially grateful to have started training with Joy Lober Anderson and the Broadway Mentors Program from the early days of the program.

 

A typical young teen, Arielle loves spending time with friends and family, traveling, and playing with the latest technology apps. At the same time, Arielle is a unique and creative kid who also likes to make videos, play her ukulele, draw, get creative with make-up artistry, and make goofy faces.
