I am so grateful to have an artistic home here at Bag&Baggage. I am continually engaged and challenged by the work we do, and I love getting to explore and play with these smart and creative people who are so dedicated to making beautiful, thought-provoking art.
Since 2005, Cassie has worked with theaters, arts organizations, and training programs across the country, connecting with communities, facilitating events, educating actors, and helping to build frameworks that allow these organizations thrive. As a performer herself, Cassie received her training in the MFA Acting program at Florida Atlantic University, and the BA Theatre program at Goshen College in Indiana. Behind the scenes, she has worked as a Production Manager, Event Manager, and Production Stage Manager at the Goshen College Music Center; as Event Coordinator for New World Arts (Goshen, Ind.); as Publicity Coordinator for the Florida Atlantic University Department of Theatre and Dance; and as the Ten4One/PASSPORT Coordinator, “Think It” Project Manager, and Professional Development Program Coordinator right here at Bag&Baggage.
Cassie began working with Bag&Baggage as an actor in the summer of 2011, shortly after moving to Oregon, and is a proud founding member of B&B’s Resident Acting Company. Her current work with the company unites her passion for challenging, engaging live performance experiences with her passion for promoting the presence of arts organizations within communities, helping to ensure their success; she is grateful to be able to call Bag&Baggage her artistic home.
