      [edit] Early life
      Anndretta (Born 1976) was introduced to theater at the age of 4 or 5 by her mother who was determined to expose her to activities outside of their neighborhood, the Acorn projects, on the west side of Oakland, CA. Anndretta took the public bus to the Julia Morgan Theater in Berkeley, CA after school to attend classes and rehearsals for early roles in plays and musicals. At the age of twelve she landed her first professional television job as a host for the FOX Kids Club doing news segments, interviews and voice-overs.

      Anndretta continued her involvement in theater throughout high school, college and beyond in productions like Working, Wind in the Willows, and Once On This Island. At Stanford University she studied classical voice and during her junior year, along with friends, wrote and produced the musical hip-hopera Stanfunk XIX: The legend of Don Juan. Anndretta has played characters that include; Friar Tuck, Billie Holiday, a furry animal with a British accent named Mole, the mythical Jamaican love martyr named Timoun, a non-speaking dancer named Consequence, a man-stealing vixen named Trina, and most recently a sixteen year-old foster child named Toni.
