Theatre newcomer, Arielle Crosby, is no stranger to the stage. A native Detroiter, Arielle has been singing all of her life and has been performing since the age of 11. It all began with winning the city-wide Delta Sigma Theta sponsored Jabberwock Talent Competition and led to performances across the US and countries around the world. These stages range from Carnegie Hall in New York to Palau de la Música in Barcelona. Her theatre career began with T.J. Hemphill's 'Perilous Times", Detroit's longest-running original musical and led to several performances at the acclaimed Stagecrafters Baldwin Theatre of Royal Oak, MI. Two of those performances included "Dreamgirls" and "In The Heights", both of which won the BroadwayWorld Regional Award for "Best Musical". Arielle made her professional theatre debut as the Narrator in Detroit Public Theatre's production of the Off-Broadway hit "Murder Ballad". She was most recently seen in the North American tour of Motown the Musical as Martha Reeves and a Diana Ross understudy.
