Thea Disney loves adventure which is one of the reasons she loves theatre! Every day is a new
experience with newfangled ideas to learn and explore!

Thea was born and raised in Arizona the oldest of 9 siblings. She originally attended The University of Northern Colorado pursuing a degree in Acting and Dance and then finished up her Bachelor’s at
Brigham Young University Idaho. Thea has been involved in theatre since she was 6 years old and has collaborated in over 60 theatrical productions as a performer, director, choreographer, designer, and technician. Her interest in the performing arts started with dance as she studied jazz, ballet, and tap. She did her first musical, “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” at 6 years old and has loved theatre, music, and dance ever since. In college, she studied Theatre Education and expanded her dance training to include clogging and international folk dance. She ran her own dance studio for 7 years, started a musical theatre program at a charter school in Arizona, and worked for a semester at Walt Disney World as a part of the Disney College Program.

Thea has always loved Disney and knew when she met her husband (whose last name is Disney) that it was meant to be! She and Chance have been married for 2 years and have 3 children. Thea is stoked to join the Alturas family and wants you to remember to, “Act well your part, there all honor lies.” ~ Alexander Pope
