2012 Sherry Alberoni
Sherry Alberoni (then billed as Sherry Allen) was a Mouseketeer on the second season of The Mickey Mouse Club and has enjoyed a successful career as an actress and performer.
Early on, Sherry’s generosity of spirit prompted her to volunteer for charity work. She was so successful at it that she was proclaimed a Red Feather girl by the Community Chest, which enabled her to attend Disneyland’s opening day -- where she first met Walt Disney. Sherry and her brother both tried out for the Mouseketeers in the spring of 1956. Sherry earned her mouse ears by playing the trumpet while tap-dancing. At age nine, Sherry was the youngest Mouseketeer for the show's second season. Though normally assigned to the Blue Team for Circus Day and Guest Star Day audiences, Sherry was also given roles in several Anything Can Happen Day numbers. She later recalled that director Sidney Miller often changed her lines to include many sibilants, because he found her lisp hilarious.
After leaving The Mickey Mouse Club, Sherry went on to a successful TV and film career. Her films include Dance With Me, Henry (the last Abbott and Costello film) and The Three Worlds of Gulliver. Her television career included a recuring role on Family Affair, as well as guest roles on Bronco, The Ed Wynn Show, The Donna Reed Show, The Farmer’s Daughter, The Monkees, My Three Sons and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. She also worked as a voice actress, and can be heard in such animated series as Josie and the Pussycats, Super Friends, and The Mighty Orbots.
In 1962, her brother, Roy, founded a professional combo called The Rhythmaires, for which Alberoni was the lead vocalist. In 1980, Sherry took part in the televised Mouseketeer reunion, and for once got a chance to tap dance with the Red Team. She took part in the Mouseketeer live performances at Disneyland in the 1980s, and also became a fixture on Mouseketeer personal appearance tours during the late ‘80s and ‘90s, often teaming with Bobby Burgess.
