Tony award winner Anika Noni Rose's journey in the performing arts has taken her everywhere from the Broadway stage to the world of Disney. But before she became associated with a Disney princess, she cultivated her acting chops in northern Connecticut.
Rose grew up in Bloomfield and performed in her first musical at Bloomfield High School, titled "Fame," a story about the journey of a class in the High School for the Performing Arts. She enjoyed the role so much that she decided to pursue a career in acting.
