Carol Mennie

I began singing in the First Methodist church choir when I was ten years old. By the time I was eleven I was a featured soloist. My love of acting and singing lured me to New York City where I graduated from the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and then went on to study Shakespeare with Phillip Burton. A few years later, while on tour performing in regional theaters throughout the United States, I began singing again. In 1989 I met my husband, jazz guitarist Dom Minasi.

While maintaining a busy acting career,I appeared at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. in “And WHEN SHE WAS BAD....” I was awarded an OOBR for my portrayal of Gloriana Powers in “CHAIN OF SUMMER VOICES.” In 1989 I was featured in “FRANKIE & JOHNNY” opposite Tony Award-winner, Anthony Crivello, at the Milwaukee Rep., then on to the dual role of Lady Blues and Mrs. Beckoff in the revival of “TORCH SONG TRILOGY” in New York, where Dom (Minasi) was the Musical Director.
