"The Music and the Mirror is a truly breathtaking and emotional number as Cassie lays out her heart and her need to dance. Carly Caviglia as Cassie delivers a dynamic performance as she dazzles performing Marcum's enchanting choreography. Caviglia's performance did not disappoint in the iconic role of Cassie."
Growing up on an orange farm in California, I never thought I would be onstage, especially since I was prone to stage fright as a kid. But I grew up in a town that valued artistic influence, and soon I went from dancing in the orange groves to singing on the stage. After receiving my BFA in Musical Theatre from Syracuse University, I became a professional New York City based actress. While I am grateful my career has taken me to all different parts of the country, you'll find me walking Central Park listening to podcast after podcast while I am home.
I am thrilled to be auditioning and exposing myself to all aspects of theatre. A lover of Diet Coke and any iced coffee drink, I'd love to grab one and chat!
BE OUR GUEST
Can you ever get enough Beauty and the Beast? This summer, I am thrilled to be returning to New Bedford Festival Theatre for their production as Babette and u/s Belle. I am excited to again work with Diane DiCroce as my director, and Cape Cod in the summer is never a bad thing! Fun fact: This will be my third time doing B&B! Once, in high school, once in college, and now my first post-grad. Peep the photo on the right to see the last time I did the show over at Syracuse Stage as a Silly Girl!
SHE'S A MANIAC
This spring, I traded in the city lifestyle for some gorgeous Arizona sunsets to do "Flashdance" at Arizona Broadway Theatre. Directed and choreographed by Courtney Laine Self, I was lucky enough to bring an enthusiastic Gloria to life onstage. The show certainly made a splash in my life and I had such a blast working with the team over in Arizona.
NOT HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
And that is more than okay! I spent the holiday season just north of the city in the ensemble of "A Christmas Carol" over at White Plains Performing Arts Center. It was definitely difficult navigating every new day with the surge of COVID cases in NYC, but the whole team came together and we were able to finish our run. It felt so great to be dancing onstage again, and a huge shoutout to #swingnation always!
I found myself home in California for a while during 2020 and was desperate to keep my creative spirit alive...so, I found spirits! Bartending became my creative outlet and something I absolutely fell in love with. When I wasn't tap dancing behind the bar at the local restaurant I was working at, I started my own little business "Boozy Barre".
Since bars were closed, I would come up with three different cocktails a week and deliver them directly to people's porches. It originally started as something just to do over the holidays but was so popular and so fun for me that I continued for months afterward. Next time you see me, tell me your favorite cocktail and I'll give you my favorite recipe for it!
There is such artistry and skill to bartending and mixology. I am proud to not only be a part of this community but love learning more about every day.
