Lyndsi Skewes recently graduated from Marymount Manhattan College's musical theatre program in New York City in the spring of 2016.
Growing up near the farms of Connecticut, this go-getter has had a passion for performing and diving into her dreams head first. At a young age Lyndsi began imitating divas like Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera, and Celine Dion and soon embarked on her dreams of becoming a "pop star." Not only did she enjoy singing for anyone who would listen but she also enjoyed playing sports and volunteering in her local community. Her dreams of pop stardom soon turned into dreams of inspiring people through theatre. At 15, Lyndsi received her first professional experience, acting in children's theater. She continued this dream job throughout high school. In her senior year she acted in her first Equity show, The Buddy Holly Story at The Majestic Theatre in West Springfield, MA.
She soon moved to NYC to follow her dreams at Marymount Manhattan College. During her sophomore year she was cast by Bill Russell (Side Show, Pageant) in Elegies for Angels, Punks, and Raging Queens. From there some her of her most favorite college performances have included Tartuffe, Dracula the Musical, and South Pacific. Marymount has provided countless opportunities not only in theater but in cabaret. Lyndsi's extensive cabaret training has provided her with the opportunity to perform at legendary concert venues such as 54 Below, The Duplex, Broadway Comedy Club, Don't Tell Mama, and The Metropolitan Room. Once graduating, Lyndsi hit the New York Theatre scene running, utilizing her love to children's theatre, and getting cast in Event Energizer's immersive production of The Polar Express Live. Lyndsi's love for theatre spans past performing as she has also worked in Company Management (Berkshire Theatre Group), Stage Management, and Directing. In her free time Lyndsi enjoys knitting, making french press coffee, and cooking delicious vegetarian meals! Now graduated, she hopes to continue her dream of creating, performing, and make people happy.
