Elyse Sharp is that quirky girl-next-door--if next door is the entire state of California. Equally at home in Los Angeles, the Bay Area, and performing Shakespeare outdoors on a winery in a small town nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Elyse can tell you the best rest stops along I-5 and give you a podcast or audiobook recommendation for the drive or your everyday commute. At any moment, she probably has a book in her purse.
Elyse completed a year-long acting apprenticeship at Capital Stage Company in Sacramento, California, where she also was seen as Debbie in THE REAL THING and Fleance in MACBETH. She recently returned to Capital Stage as Mary Bennet in MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY.
Elyse Sharp graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Theatre Performance from Whittier College. While at Whittier, she was honored to receive the Outstanding Graduate in Theatre award and to become one of 48 Irene Ryan Regional Semi-Finalists at the Kennedy Center-American College Theatre Region 8 Festival (Southern California, Southern Nevada, Northern Arizona, Utah, Hawaii, and Guam).
