Celena Vera is a New York-based artist of Paraguayan descent. She is a proud alumna of the BFA Musical Theatre program at Ithaca College!

Raised in Saint Paul, Minnesota, Celena Vera caught the bug at 9 years old, after being cast in her first production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the local high school as part of the kids chorus. Since then, it's been almost impossible to keep her off the stage. Celena Vera has found her passion in storytelling. Connecting to others through theatre to help spark change, conversations, empathy, love, connectedness and joy is an incredible gift.

When she is not on stage, she can be found loving on the three loves of her life (​her senior pup and two free-range, indoor, little trained bunnies), enjoying cups of cold brew or swooning over Jamie in Outlander. Sour gummy worms and flaming hot Cheetos = life. Gemini. Vegetarian. Proud Hufflepuff. Powerhouse Latina.
