Samantha Kashinsky was born and raised in NY. A true Broadway baby, she has been going to shows since she was a little girl. One of her first memories is seeing 'Grease' on Broadway and asking an usher if she could go up on stage to do the hand jive. She soon found out that this was frowned upon. She has been in Virginia for two years now, attending George Mason University to pursue her masters in Secondary Education. She teaches at Montross Middle School in Montross, Virginia and is a co-director of the drama club there.
