NIU School of Theatre and Dance alumna Amber Sallis, has been named a “Hot New Face of Theatre Class of 2017” by the Chicago Tribune.

Sallis most recently appeared in a Steep Theatre production of “Earthquakes in London.”  She will next appear in “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot,” September 22 to October 19 at Eclectic Theatre, Co.  Of Amber’s ensemble roles in “Earthquakes of London” the Tribune said,

“She made all of them (and her trio of characters included a boy with special needs) beautiful portraits of complexity and stress.”

She has appeared in several Chicago-based TV shows but the Tribune says, “We hope the stage can retain her.”

Sallis is a native of Rockford, and earned her BFA in Acting from NIU in 2016.
