There’s no denying that Red Bank is where many talented individuals call home, with a handful going on to have successful careers. If there’s one person to keep an eye out on, it’s Aisling Fiona Fagan, a 10 year old Red Bank based actress who recently landed a lead role in an upcoming off-Broadway show.
At the young age of 10 years old, Aisling Fiona Fagan is already making a name for herself in the entertainment industry. Growing up in Red Bank and attending St. James Elementary school, Aisling is a trained actress, singer and dancer, who is also a member of the prestigious Broadway Youth Ensemble in NYC, recently performing at Carnegie Hall.
This month she is taking on the off-Broadway theater scene as the lead role in “THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL” at St. Luke’s Theatre Center, the home of off-Broadway Hits, starting February 13 and running through February 23.
“I am so excited to take on the role of The Little Match Girl at St. Luke’s Theatre! This is a character who goes on a very complex and emotional journey and I am looking forward to the challenge of portraying this journey in an honest and real way”, says Aisling.
This iconic story by Hans Christian Anderson comes to life in this brand-new musical adaptation, set to a contemporary score filled with soaring melodies. Set on New Year’s Eve, the Little Match Girl is forced onto the streets to sell matches to support her family.
No stranger to the entrepreneurial world, Aisling started her own business, One Bag, One World, where she collects goods for Lunch Break and Monmouth Day Care’s Pantry, two non-profits who help those in need in our area.
Aisling is one of the many talents that continue to come out of The Prep, an Eatontown based professional track training studio, and has performed on numerous occasions showcasing her musical talents. You can even watch a recent performance of hers during the Strawberry Fair over the summer below, as well at The Green Room 42 in New York above!
