A BIT ABOUT ME ...
Hello! I'm Cecily (she/they), a proudly queer artist. I was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada - it's a long story, but ask me about it some time! Dayton, Ohio is where I grew up and my parents still reside. Through my grade school years, I was lucky enough to have a number of possibilities to create freely and start a professional career, which included White Christmas at La Comedia Dinner Theatre and One Slight Hitch as well as another developmental reading at Human Race Theatre Company.
As of 2021, I became an alumnus of the Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University, with a degree in musical theatre, and I received my degree summa cum laude.
My aim in my career is to engage with levity, thinking outside of my barriers as well as the ones placed in front of us in humankind. Clowning at Webster was formative in my training and revolutionized the way I ingest stories. It lead to my belief that amongst the inner workings of absurdity can be the tragedy of truth. Empathy can teach us lessons we'd never expect to learn, until we step into shoes we'd never normally wear.
(I mean...do they even match my outfit?)
