Victoria is delighted to be making her debut in Phoenix, AZ with iTheatre Collaborative. She is not new to theater, only new to Arizona. Her passion for acting began when she was six years old and starred in The Wild Wild West as Mae West. In 1991 she moved to New York to begin her professional career on Broadway and performed with the Negro Ensemble Company. She graduated from Howard University obtaining a BFA in Film/TV & Theater. She went on to perform in film, landing a minor role as Sharon in A Rage in Harlem starring Robin Givens and Forest Whitaker. During her educational peak in Washington, DC, she wrote, pro-duced and starred in a one woman show entitled Feeling for Life, and as Jackie “Moms” Mabley which was invited to perform at the National Black Theater Festival. The show was highly acclaimed and reviewed at the Festival. Ms Stokes then returned to Dallas and became Director of John Robert Powers Modeling & Acting Agency/ Conservatory. She also toured with the Dallas Shakespeare Festival portraying Lady MacBeth in MacBeth, and Emelia in Othello. She is thrilled to be returning to the theater to do what she loves, exclaiming, “The stage is the only place that I feel “NORMAL!” She currently teaches Acting for TV/Film at John Casablanca in Scottsdale and recently finished her first children’s book to be published in 2019.
