Actor - Theater Artist
Carolyn Kettig was born and raised in New York City, where she continues to live, work and ride the subway (when it functions). She recently made her Off-Broadway debut with The Public Theater's Mobile Unit production of Henry V, directed by Robert O'Hara. Her regional credits include Lucy Thurber's Once Upon a Time in the Berkshires, which was created at the Williamstown Theater Festival as part of their Community Works program. She is a proud graduate of SUNY Purchase's Professional Actor Training Program. Favorite credits with Purchase Repertory Theater include: The Winter's Tale (Hermione), The Coast of Utopia: Voyage (Luibov), and Blues for Mr. Charlie (The State). In addition to working in theatre, film and television, Carolyn hopes to create new work with an emphasis on community engagement and political activism. Past original projects include The Rockaway Project (2014), a documentary theatre piece that was self produced, written, directed, and performed by a team of three Purchase actors, and That's Not Fair! (2010), a political theater piece produced by Ma'yan, a women's social justice advocacy organization. She has also lightly begun pursuing directing; she made her directorial debut as the assistant director under Jake Beckhard for Sofya Levitsky-Weitz's new play Intuitive Men, which ran at The Brick and The Tank in the fall of 2017.
Carolyn is an avid reader, podcast consumer and art world fanatic.
She will also never turn down a chance to dance with her dad (pictured below).
