About Erin

Erin Christine Walsh is an actor, singer, and writer living in New York City. She most recently played young Elizabeth Cady (Stanton) in Kyle Bass’s new play “Possessing Harriet” in its first production since its world premiere, premiered the role of Emmy in “A Doll’s House, Part 2” in coastal Maine, and spent year abroad with Disney Cruise Line, appearing onstage in over a dozen roles for audiences throughout Europe and North America, and visiting more than 50 cities and 20 countries. Erin holds a BFA in Acting from Syracuse University's Department of Drama, where her studies also took her to New York, Los Angeles, and Shakespeare's Globe in London. Her performance experience spans a wide portfolio, with special affection for classical and heightened texts, voice and dialect work, musical theatre, comedy, and film. Erin can be seen performing regularly in cabarets, comedy shows, and workshops throughout New York.

Hailing from Chicago’s western suburbs, Erin’s theatre training began on contemporary stages downtown and historic stages in the Chicago area — including the Rialto Square Theatre, where she performed her first full-length Shakespeare as Puck. Erin began formal voice training at 12 and continued training and performing into high school, while also joining the record holding Downers Grove South Speech Team. In her four years on the team, Erin was a three-time state champion and state finalist, top-thirty national competitor, and team captain. Erin cites speech and debate as a source of continued love of political analysis, writing, public speaking, and the thrill of auditioning — a love that carries into her professional life. She has since returned to her alma mater to direct, teach masterclasses, and serve as a coach to a new state-championship winning team.

Outside performing, Erin maintains a diverse diet of art, music, travel, and local political engagement. In her free time, she enjoys reading, writing, and strumming on her little purple guitar to “dad rock”. She seeks to find something new every day in New York, and has found it a flourishing hobby with fascinating people-watching.
