BIO

   As the youngest member of a musical family, Stephanie was eager to sing. She began taking voice lessons, piano lessons, and dance classes when she was four years old. In the Opera of the Pacific's production of Puccini's La Boheme, Stephanie proudly joined her mother, who was playing Mimi, on stage as the child soloist. She became the youngest member of Cantata Choir Guam at age 11, and performed at the Lincoln Center in New York City. 

       In high school, Stephanie was choir president, a soloist in Colorado's All State Choir and All State Jazz Choir, and won Outstanding Choral Person of the Year. Over the summers, she attended the Oberlin Conservatory and Interlochen summer program for Vocal Studies, and competed in NATS Competition, winning 1st place in Classical and 2nd place in Musical Theatre. When she wasn't singing, Stephanie danced with Expressions Dance Company, and worked as a rehearsal and audition pianist at her local theatre. 

       Stephanie spent her freshman year at Northwestern University with a major in Opera/Vocal Performance. After deciding to delve more deeply into theatre, she transferred to University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music (CCM), where she received her BFA in Musical Theatre. During her time at CCM, Stephanie worked at regional theatres over the summer, such as The Muny (Tuptim in King and I), Arvada Center for the Arts, Showboat Majestic (Marcy Park in Spelling Bee), and Lyric Opera of Chicago. 

       Since moving to NYC, Stephanie has worked in theatre productions, concerts, readings, cabarets, workshops, commercials, and voiceovers. She was in the original companies of the First National Tour of Cinderella (Marie u/s), Lincoln Center’s The King and I (Tuptim u/s), and most recently War Paint at the Nederlander Theatre. She is the newest member of Range A Cappella. In her free time, she teaches voice lessons, practices energy healing, vocal coaches her fellow Broadway peers, and dabbles in music direction and arranging. Stephanie is interested and open to any opportunity to create! 

 

REVIEWS

“New company member Stephanie Jae Park shines in “The Man I Love,” giving Gershwin a contemporary spin with sufficient homage. But wait for her brilliant rendition of “Dancing on My Own,” in a surprising and haunting arrangement by Matt Smart— you may not recognize the song, but you will never forget Park’s performance.”

-Criticatlarge2.0

“Emotionally charged “Dancing on My Own” builds into a blazing climax with Stephanie Jae Park, who captures the wounded and ultimately self-assured woman in the song... somber beauty of Jae Park’s solo"

- Alexa Chipman
