Meet Cailin O'Connor!

As we gear up for a new educational touring season, it's a pleasure to introduce the actors that will be gracing elementary and middle school stages across the state (and some parts of NY and PA!)

First up! Cailin O'Connor:

Cailin O'Connor is oh-so-glad to be with George Street Playhouse. She grew up outside Syracuse N.Y. where she Irish Step danced with her absurdly large Irish Step dancing/fiddle-playing family and, of course, participated in the Oklahoma's and Music Man's of small town theater. She entered college thinking she would rock the biology/environmental science and save the earth but quickly discovered an affinity for fine art and an anti-affinity for pre-meds. So she, oh heck, I studied film, making a mix of strange experimental feminist pieces and ridiculous music videos, concurrently acting in whatever I could and studying theater with whoever I could. After graduating I spent a few years lost in the world, tap dancing in the subways, wandering in India etc before at last deciding to give acting a shot and landing in your laps!
