Hannah Brudnock is a passionate and driven actress, singer, and performer with a bright and bubbly personality. She was born and raised in Tempe, Arizona to a family that is equally as passionate about theater, film, and the arts! Hannah loved singing and performing since she was little. She participated in theater and choir all four years of high school, discovering a craving for being on stage. Unsure of whether she should fully commit to a degree and career in Musical Theatre, Hannah spent her final year of high school answering that question. Deciding there was nothing else in the world that felt right enough, Hannah was grateful to be accepted into the Music Theater and Opera department at Arizona State University. 

Halfway through her degree, Hannah has learned skills to help her thrive in her career. She works on the proper technique to sing with Gordon Hawkins, a critically acclaimed baritone, performer, and professor. Understanding the depths and history behind music theory, learning to convey a character’s emotions through physicality and vocal color, being able to tell stories from various eras of Musical Theatre, and understanding the history behind each are some of the skills Hannah is absorbing while getting her degree.

She has been involved with numerous productions in the Music Theatre and Opera department including Steve Martin and Edie Brickell's Bright Star where she played the young and passionate

book-lover Margo as well as the reserved and curious Disciple singing By My Side in Godspell. Other credits in Hannah's time at ASU include Mex-Mongo in Runaways, Narrator in Fly By Night, and Waitress in Speed Dating Tonight! Back in 2019, Hannah was a part of a staged New Works reading of Carmel Dean’s Well-Behaved Women at ASU. She portrayed one of the feminist activists apart of the anonymous 1980s group "The Guerilla Girls." A year later, amongst the heat of the pandemic, Hannah was fortunate enough to be in the New Works reading of Nayika, a new musical written by Vaibu Mohan and Raiah Rofsky. One of the two performances was staged at The Phoenix Theater Company! The Nayika album can also be found on Spotify. More recently, Hannah was thrilled to be involved in the New Works reading of The Valley written by Eric Fegan and Jamie Maletz.
