Marnie Schulenburg (born May 21, 1984 in Barnstable, Massachusetts) is an American actress. She is known for her role as Alison Stewart on As the World Turns (2007–2010).

Private life[edit]

She was not looking for a soap job when she left her parents' home in Barnstable, Massachusetts, for New York and moved in with her older brother Gus, a playwright who graduated from Barnstable High School in Hyannis, Massachusetts in 1994. Marnie's other brother, Allan, is a music teacher in Connecticut.

“My main love is musical theater,” says Schulenburg, who graduated from DeSales University in Center Valley, Pennsylvania, with a degree in acting and directing. Upon arriving in New York she went on auditions for theater, TV, and film roles. Her manager arranged a general meeting with Mary Clay, the casting director for As the World Turns.

She took dance and voice lessons at the Cape Cod Conservatory in West Barnstable, appeared in musicals, and sang in the vocal jazz ensemble at Barnstable High School, from which she graduated in 2002. She got into acting, particularly Shakespeare and the classics, in college. For the last two years she worked at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival.

When she's not playing Alison Stewart, Schulenburg plans to devote her spare time to pursuing acting jobs in theater.

On September 15, 2013 she married her boyfriend of 10 years, actor Zack Robidas. [1]
