My name is Mikayla (she/they), but my friends call me Mik! I am a recent graduate of Boston Conservatory's Musical Theatre program, and I just moved to the Chicago area. I grew up in a small town called Perrysville, Ohio, where I first found my love of performing through dancing around the living room to The Wizard of Oz and Oklahoma! As an artist, I gravitate towards work that is ensemble based and driven by storytelling. I am passionate about directing and devising work as well, and I hope to create work that is inclusive and accessible in terms of casting, creative team, and members of the audience. As a young performer who is hungry to begin my career, I can't wait to jump into any new work that comes my way!
