The whole world is a stage to 26-year-old Beth Benedict.You may recognize her from one of her roles in a number of musical throughout the Kansas City Area.
Benedict, who works as a recruiter, only recently returned to Kansas City after a stint in Los Angeles and New York. Now that she’s back, Benedict has thrown herself into volunteering for a number of local causes, including the Aids Walk, Catholic charities, Crawl for Cancer and the March of Dimes. Benedict says. “I feel I get to give my time and creativity.”
Benedict’s creative efforts have followed her to the stage, too. She recently took the stage for the musical Hairspray, where she was able to indulge in her love of singing, acting and dancing. Also Beth just finished choreographing two shows, one at Shawnee Mission South High School and the other at The Barn Players. Beth will return to the stage this Spring at the Barn Players.

Benedict is a huge sports fan,Jayhawks being number one in her heart with the Chiefs and Royals coming up second.She also plays sand volleyball and kickball.
As for the power of mentorship, Benedict felt first-hand what a positive role model can do for a young child.
“My voice teacher is an amazing mentor,” Benedict says. “He was almost like therapy. He would just listen, not interrupt or judge. As a middle school and high school student, that was so helpful. I know he has made a huge difference in my life and in countless others.”
