Kyla Stone is a Los Angeles-based actress and singer originally from Anaheim, California. At the tender age of five, she saw The Phantom of the Opera, and much to her father's dismay, she traded basketball for Sondheim, Camelot, and a good ol' jazz split.
Most recently, Kyla finished leading the second national tour of ANASTASIA as the world's first African-American Anya. She also spent the summer at The Muny in their 2022 production of LEGALLY BLONDE (directed by Maggie Burrows) as the first African-American Elle Woods in the United States.
Kyla graduated from Chapman University in 2020 with a B.F.A. in Theatre Performance. She made her professional debut as Johanna in SWEENEY TODD at the Hangar Theatre alongside Nik Walker and Donna Lynne Champlin. Favorite roles at CU include Judy Bernly in 9 TO 5 (awarded "Outstanding Performance of the Year"), Gary Coleman in AVENUE Q (directed by Luke Yankee), and Mariana in MEASURE FOR MEASURE (co-directed by Tom Bradac and Amanda Zarr).
Before college, Kyla studied musical theatre, jazz, and opera at the South Orange County School of the Arts (SOCSA), where she also discovered her love of Taco Bell, The Bachelor, country music, yoga, and Chris Evans (#iconic).
When she is not on stage or in front of a camera, she loves trying new food spots with her boyfriend, listening to 80's music, playing with her cat Dolly, taking photos, and watercoloring.
Kyla is blessed to be pursuing her love of performing and inspiring the next generation of princesses, lawyers, and dreamers. She is managed by Sweet 180 and signed with HCKR Agency.
