Cassidy Layton



When Cassidy was 6 years old she climbed on stage during her sisters high school production of The Secret Garden, and thus began her very serious acting career. She grew up so, so untalented. She sang so often and so badly around the house that there is a “no singing at the table” rule that stands to this day.

Lucky for her, learning exists! After 15 years of vocal training, Cassidy now sounds pretty rad singing legit repertoire, folk/country music, and angsty punk rock. She currently studies at Liz Caplan studios.

She became a comedian shortly after high school, surviving the perilous NYC open mic scene, and received extensive improv training from Story Pirates, B.N.H.M. and The Ride.

Finally, Cassidy found her acting chops in college, and graduated with an associates in Musical Theater AMDA NYC in February of 2017.

Now she's a full blown professional performer! Sick! She typically plays quirky, smart and soulful women who are courageous, and cool (just like her). Previous parts include misunderstood cool teens, hopeful spunky upstarts, manic pixie dream girls, and murderers. She’s also a badass flying trapeze performer.

Cassidy is just waiting for the breakout dark comedy, quirky rock musical, or satanic cult that will finally help her soar like the majestic egret that she is; so get writing folks!
