Short Bio and Reviews of the work of Shorey Walker
Anything Goes "But the show is stolen by the fantastic talents of two people. Shorey Walker as Reno Sweeney is one of the most vivacious, effervescent personalities I've seen in years. Triple-threat talents as actress, singer and dancer make her the most dazzling light on the stage-- I could not take my eyes off her. Her energy and absolutely electric spirit demand attention, and she is right on target at every moment. She has subtle command of her world, and we want to be a part of it." -Stateline News
Peter Pan "Peter Pan flew into the NJPAC with something is has rarely had: an actress who can portray a masculine Peter Pan. Here's an unknown actress named Shorey Walker – with spiky and un-kept hair, a tinge of a Cockney accent, a cock-o'-the-walk strut – as the most boisterous boy. Here's a Peter who, when elbowing a confederate in the rib to make a point, could actually crack one."
- The Star Ledger by Peter Filichia
