”As the shrewish Carla Normack Barnstead, Van Iderstine’s performance was so

believable that off camera and out of character Nancy was asked who she was

by one of the crew members.”

    Craig Schlattman, Director, The Seller


"Nancy Van Iderstine is full of life in an excellent turn as an actress-waitress

in Waitress."
    -Robert Axelrod, Campus Circle

"Van Iderstine's work is riveting. Pigeons, as mentioned already, is a delight...

perfect, as is Van Iderstine's wonderful solo turn in Waitress. Every actor can r

elate to her, especially via Van Iderstine's tender portrait."
    -Don Grigware, Grigware Talks Theatre

"Partly because of the script, but mostly because of Ms. Van Iderstine’s affecting,

understated, heartfelt performance, the small piece is charming, funny, devastating

and ultimately life affirming."
     -Geoff Hoff, L.A. Theatre Review

Potential Realized! 
Nancy was nominated for a 2008 ADA Award as part of the cast in Comic Potential

portrayal of a feline gently terrorizing a house sitter, coughing up hairballs,

destroying the carpet..." [in Live Humans On Stage]                               

      -Robert Young, Burbank Leader 


“I highly recommend Nancy for all types of voice-over work!  She is flexible both in her vocal ability and as an actress overall.  Her cheerful attitude and dedication make her a joy to have in the booth." 

      -Erick Cifuentes, Director & Engineer,

EEC International, The Invisible Studio & more



“I have worked professionally with Nancy for a number of years now.  She has been a valuable asset to various projects we have taken on as we tend to hire actors with a wide range to their voices.  Nancy has time and again risen to the challenge, whether it be a younger ingénue sound or a voice with more of a character texture.  She is always very professional in the studio and a pleasure to have on the project.  I would highly recommend her whenever considering voice talent. “

      -Bob Buchholz, Director/Owner, Spliced  Bread Productions


“Nancy knows the business of the business and has the gift of a performer. Her emotional commitment and clear dedication and discipline for her business dealings make Nancy a right-brain and left-brain powerhouse.”
