"I don't want to be the star of your audiobook. I want to make YOUR VOICE come through."
Sara has a versatility with language and dialects and the ability to translate many years of professional acting onstage to the medium of the audiobook. While studying for her Master of Fine Arts degree at The University of Louisville, Sara passed the audition for and became a professional narrator at the studios of The Library of Congress/American Printing House for the Blind. Over the next three years she recorded over forty titles there.
Sara left Louisville to pursue a professional acting career onstage which continues to this day. She has performed in over 100 professional regional theatre productions in roles written by Edward Albee, Tennessee Williams (a favorite of hers), William Shakespeare, Lillian Hellman, Samuel Beckett as well as contemporary comedies and dramas such as AUGUST:OSAGE COUNTY and OTHER DESERT CITIES. She has played the role of Maria Callas twice onstage in Terrance McNally's MASTER CLASS. Sara has studied acting and voice with Kristin Linklater and Tina Packer of Shakespeare and Company as well as with Rinda Frye at The University of Louisville.
She has been affiliated with over 20 professional regional theatres in her career and has been named an ensemble member at The Hippodrome Theatre in Gainesville, FL where she currerntly makes her home, and at The Florida Repertory Theatre in Fort Myers, FL. A recent review by Terry Teachout in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL(Friday, January 14, 2013) of Lillian Hellman's THE LITTLE FOXES had this to say about Sara's performance of Regina Giddens:Regina is so despicable that the key to making THE LITTLE FOXES work is to keep her awfulness under wraps for as long as possible. An exaggerated performance will sink the show, but Ms. Morsey is careful to carry herself in the genteel manner of a Southern lady right up to the moment when she unsheathes her razor and starts slashing. You'll definitely believe her when she tells Horace, her sickly husband, that I hope you die soon. I'm waiting for you to die.
In the past few years Sara has been headhunted to record several audiobooks: THE PRINCESS AND HER GARDEN (available on Amazon) REFLECTIONS ON EQUESTRIAN ART and SCHOOL OF HORSEMANSHIP for Gold Leaf Farms. This led her back into the recording studio, to ACX and many titles to follow.

AUDIBLE APPROVED PRODUCER critics awards in Louisville,KY, Memphis, TN, Gainesville, FL Chris Silk, theatre critic for the Naples Daily News wrote on Monday, March 18, 2013 of Sara's performance as Silda in OTHER DESERT CITIES (by Jon Robin Baitz): Sara Morsey brings her usual subtle, pill-popping, crazy-person touch to accidental harridan Silda; that low-voiced, carping, complaining growl shoud be declared a national treasure.
