Kayleen Seidl is Christine Daee in Phantom
Originally from the good ol’ Midwest town of Joplin, Missouri, Kayleen attended St. Olaf College where she trained classically and earned a BM in Vocal Performance with Distinction as well as a BA in Spanish porque le encanta hablar español!
After graduation and a summer season at the Woodstock Playhouse in Woodstock, NY, Kayleen moved directly to the Big Apple to pursue a career in musical theatre. Described as an actress with “natural charm,” she was acknowledged for her “transformative vocal performance” as Sarah Brown in the Guys and Dolls National Tour.
Some of Kayleen’s other favorite credits include: It Shoulda Been You (Rebecca Steinberg), *Eddie and the Palaceades (Mary Doyle), Show Boat (Magnolia), Oklahoma! (Laurey), Les Misérables (Cosette), TOMMY (Mrs. Walker). She also enjoys traveling the world, playing board games with friends, being Auntie to her adorable niece and nephew, and living city life with her wonderful husband Brett!
Kayleen is currently performing in Fidler Afn Dakh (Fiddler on the Roof) under the direction of Tony and Oscar-winning Joel Grey at the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene in New York City. This production is making history as it is the first time the work has been done in Yiddish in the US and the first time it has been performed in this language since its premiere 50 years ago in Israel.
Yeston & Kopit's Phantom opens 9/13/18! Kayleen stars as Christine Daee.
