Caroline S. Grace

Caroline is a B.A. Theater studies major, with an emphasis in acting and directing for both theater and film. Growing up as the second youngest in a family of five children, she desperately sought an outlet for self-expression (and perhaps a little more attention!) so she began her acting, voice, and dance training at the age of nine and has been hooked ever since. Caroline received her first professional role in 2009 with 11:11 Theater Company in Boston where she played Nora in the world premiere of The Quite Infinite. She also had the opportunity to travel to Edinburgh, Scotland to perform in the 2005 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In addition, Caroline has participated in a conglomerate of student films, doing both acting and voice over work, and is a classically trained soprano vocalist. With an open heart and an open mind, Caroline looks forward to a wild roller coaster of a journey that this life has to bring.
