Renee May 2015 Color-1Renee Anderson is an Oklahoma City-based singer and actress. Renee grew up in Edmond, OK and began performing at age 8 after being cast as Gretl in a local university production of The Sound of Music. She has maintained a busy performance schedule ever since at venues such as Dallas Summer Musicals, Kansas City Starlight Theater, Atlanta Theater of the Stars, the St. Louis Muny, Oklahoma City Philharmonic, Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma, Oklahoma City Repertory Theater, Carpenter Square Theatre and The Pollard Theatre. Renee is busily involved in charitable work in the Oklahoma City area and is a regular performer for various non-profit organizations and fundraisers. She believes in giving back to causes for which she is passionate and to her community. This was exemplified in March 2011 when she received more than $10,000 in donations for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for childhood cancer research, and she shaved her signature pink locks. In 2009, she performed a sold out, one-woman show at the Lyric Plaza Theatre. She returned the following year with another show. All profits from both shows helped raise over $10,000 and were donated to the Lyric Theatre Thelma Gaylord Academy. Renee received her Bachelor and Master degrees of Music in Musical Theater at Oklahoma City University, where she studied with Larry Wade Keller and Florence Birdwell. Renee is also a highly sought after voice instructor where she balances a studio of more than 40 students with her numerous performing activities.

Renee Anderson’s performance is highly impressive..... (The character) Yitzhak must be played by a professionally trained singer, and Anderson is one of the most capable Yitzhaks I’ve seen. " - Larry Laneer, local theater critic
