Long before she fawned over Edward Cullen in Twilight and showed off her singing chops in Pitch Perfect – hitting theaters this October! — Anna Kendrick hit the Broadway stage at the tender age of 12 and earned a Tony Award nom in the process (courtesy of her role in High Society)! That same year, 1998, Anna performed in My Favorite Broadway: The Leading Ladies… which we just so happened to stumble upon today! Watch one of her first professional performances, before she hit it big, above!
P.S. Stay tuned for our interview with Anna for her role in ParaNorman on Teen.com!
