LaDonna Burns (Munchkin Coroner, Jitterbug Queen) is delighted to be making her Syracuse Stage debut in The Wizard of Oz! National Tours include: Rent ("Seasons of Love" soloist) and
Seussical the Musical (Sour Kangaroo). LaDonna has appeared as Teen Angel/Miss Lynch in Grease at the International Music Festival in Macau, China. Regional credits include: Godspell (Roustabout Woman), All Shook Up (Sylvia), Smokey Joe’s Café (BJ), Ain't Misbehavin’ (Armelia), Beehive (Aretha Franklin), Crowns (Jeanette) and Satchmo: The Life and Times of Louis Armstrong (Ella Fitzgerald/Bessie Smith). LaDonna is one-half of the comedy duo The Black Ups. She also enjoys teaching Musical Theatre performers about all things Pop/Rock at the New York Film Academy. LaDonna would like to thank Donna Drake and 2 Ring Circus for the opportunity to work with them again. Thank you to my friends and family for their continued support, especially CC! I would like to dedicate this show to the memory of Sal L.
