About Allison Allen:
From her kindergarten stage debut as a bovine to performing one-woman pieces with Women of Faith, Allison Allen has always relished the power of story, the thrill of walking in the shoes of others, and, most importantly, spot-lighting the Ultimate Story-teller.
After graduating as an Andrew Carnegie Scholar from the prestigious acting program at Carnegie Mellon University, Allison (Metcalf) Allen landed on Broadway in the revival of “Grease”, and stayed there for almost two years. Following her tenure of 650 performances with the show, the hand-jive from Rydell High still returns to grace her dreams.
Currently, she loves weaving Biblical teaching and acting pieces together in unexpected ways, and is over the moon to teach at conferences and retreats around the country.
Actors aren’t the only ones who play characters. Many of us do, much of the time. We walk into a room, figure out who we’re supposed to be in this context, slip into character, and say the lines we know we should say. We become someone else. Maybe we tell ourselves it’s some version of us, but deep down we know this inauthentic character is not what God wants for our lives—and it’s not what we want either.
With fascinating personal stories and sharp insight into human nature, former actor Allison Allen calls you to drop the brave act and step into the role of a lifetime—being your real self in Christ, no matter what the critics might say. She gives you permission to talk about, rather than around, the things you feel, freeing you to step out of the shadows and into the light of God’s true calling.
