Ellise Chase is a third year M.F.A. actress, hailing from the notoriously snowy Erie, PA. When not on stage or in rehearsal, Ellise loves reading, walking her dog Chloe, and cooking with her fiance. Some fun facts about Ellise: she worked on a dude ranch in Wyoming as a wrangler for three years, she speaks a little Irish Gaelic, and can perfectly quote all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls.
Some of her favorite roles have been Stella A Streetcar Named Desire, Wendy Peter and Wendy, and Roma The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui. Ellise’s dream is to work at the Stratford Festival in Ontario, grow a vegetable garden, and have a house that is modeled in the style of her favorite show: Fixer Upper.
