February 03, 2020 -
AMDA alumna Vasthy Mompoint is the Fall 2019 Los Angeles graduation speaker. The ceremony will take place on Saturday, February 8th, 2020.
AMDA alumna Vasthy Mompoint is a multifaceted, versatile performer whose dynamic personality and incredible talent have contributed to a career spanning over 20 years to date. Vasthy has appeared in nine Broadway shows, debuting in Good Vibrations before playing various roles in Hot Feet, Mary Poppins, Ghost, Soul Doctor, Rocky, The SpongeBob Musical, and most recently The Prom. Vasthy is a two-time winner of the Legacy Robe, which recognizes a company member from each Broadway musical as having the most ensemble credits in that cast. She received this honor for Soul Doctor and The Prom.
Last year, Vasthy made her Feinstein’s/54 Below debut in Bits, Gummies, Folk, and Love (or how I survived the last year of my life), a concert she created and headlined. Shortly thereafter, Vasthy and the rest of the cast of SpongeBob Musical were invited to reprise their Broadway roles for a live performance on Nickelodeon.
Vasthy has recently relocated to Los Angeles, where she was selected from thousands of applicants to participate in the “2020 CBS Diversity Sketch Comedy Showcase,” a hybrid comedy show featuring original writing and Broadway-style performances.
Vasthy will appear in the upcoming Netflix film The Prom, based on the Broadway musical, and in Awkwafina’s new Comedy Central television series, “Nora from Queens.”
As an entrepreneur, Vasthy co-founded Broadway Babysitters, a childcare agency in New York City run and staffed exclusively by artists, which will soon be expanding to Los Angeles.
Vasthy is thankful for her education and continued support from AMDA, and is honored to speak at the February 2020 commencement ceremony.
