Back in early 2000, Sam was asked to work on a local radio spot for a car stereo shop, as the voice of a leprechaun. From there a dance studio hired him to do several sound-a-like impersonations for their big Disney dance recital productions. Since 2008, he's contributed over fifty voices to those projects, from The Little Mermaid to Frozen.
Sam now directs, edits, acts and produces the dance recital voice over tracks for all of their shows.
In 2006, Sam placed in the top 15 of USA Network's national competition called "Show Us Your Character." He was able to impersonate several voices in three minutes. Now days, he's able to do over fifty impersonations like: The Water Boy, The Grinch, Drac, Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Church Lady, SKELETOR, Jack Sparrow, Shrek, Donkey, Christopher Walden, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Obama, Yoda, Bane, The Joker, Batman and many more.
In addition to impersonations, Mr. Beman is also able to create his own original characters. In 2015, Sam won a global competition to find voice artists for the popular app Zoobe. This is a cartoon video app, where you can record up to 30 seconds of video with your voice (or voices). This allowed Sam to give life to several new characters!
Sam voiced all of the male characters for Academy Dance Centers spring production of Frozen at the River Center in Columbus, Georgia. This is a highlight reel of some of the voices in the show.
This video features four different characters that I voiced, for a dance recital production of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." In addition to voicing most of the male character parts.

A big thank you to Academy Dance Center for giving me the opportunity to produce such a memorable show!
