is thrilled to be back at the Florida Repertory Theatre. She made her Florida Rep debut last season as Cecily in The Importance of Being Earnest and loved every second. Other credits include Fiddler on the Roof (Philadelphia Orchestra), The Wild Party, Broadway Our Way Concert (University of Michigan), Young Frankenstein, Rock of Ages, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (The Barn Theatre), and Sister Act (Italy). Ella is a Canadian actress, her hometown on Vancouver Island. She grew up as a competitive dancer and now holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from the University of Michigan and a certificate in Shakespeare from the University of Oxford (British American Drama Academy). She is also an associate director to Brendan Stackhouse (Broadway’s Fun Home). Ella is extremely grateful for the opportunity to share the provocative story of Oleanna with Fort Myers, and would like to thank Chris, Jason, Greg, Henderson Hogan Agency, and her family and friends for believing in and supporting her through thick and thin. www.ellaolesen.com
