Natasha Kaminsky came to New York with a mission to share her talent in a major way and has managed to do thus far. After completing high school, she took off to NYC with a Scholarship to the New York Conservatory For Dramatic Arts. After studying the Meisner technique, she honed her skills and was soon ready to take on the acting world.
She gained experience before departing to NY from the Emotionworks Cut Opera where they fuse rock, soul and other genres to make opera more appealing to younger audiences. Examples of her work in this include her lead roles in “Marriage Of Figaro” and “TOSCA” both featured in The Herald Sun Newspaper. She hopes to one day bring this idea of fusing the ideal of Opera with different genres of music back to the forefront in NY somewhat similar to what Freddie Mercury did with his music with “A Night at the Opera” or the Who with “Tommy”.
When it comes to acting, she dives into any role she is given. Natasha landed her first lead role in the production “LOVE ME TENDER” in the Strawberry One-Act Festival in Manhattan, where she played the character, Janet, who was the voice of honesty and support during her best friend’s unfaithful marriage. This powerful and touching role led to further recognition and the landing of an additional project in the Strawberry One Act Festival, “STOCKYARDS”. She was then featured in the well-known website, BroadwayWorld for her performances. Her successful journey then continued as she was cast in Axis Theatres “Seven in One Blow” a Christmas Musical, directed by Randy Sharp. Axis Theatre company has presented many show’s that have been recognized in The New York Times, BroadwayWorld, The New Yorker and many other notable media outlets.
Currently, she is working on the completion of her EP with renowned composer/lyricist Patrick Michael Wickham, youngest person to win the BMI national song writing competition. In addition, she previously took part in PCC’s Production of ‘Perfect For You’, winning the ‘Best Newcomer’ award at the showcase.
Following all these accomplishments within a year of graduation, she was also cast in the short film, “Voice Over”, which explored women’s strength, female reproductive health, and love. Natasha has taken on roles in theatre, musical theatre and film, developing a strong foundation in all three areas of entertainment.
Natasha has always been inspired by such talent like Adam Sandler, Steve Martin and Sacha Baron Cohen hence her favorite genre being comedic acting. This inspiration triggered an urge within Natasha to add to this ever-growing genre of entertainment. She recently wrote and produced her own short comedic film titled “The Audition”. It will be entered into film festivals in NY, LA and internationally. With skills in so many areas such as singing, acting and producing, Natasha is headed towards a multidimensional career.
