Erin Christine Walsh is an actor, singer, and writer living in New York City. She holds a BFA in Acting from Syracuse University's Department of Drama, where her studies also took her to NYC, 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. She recently 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.

Hailing from Chicago’s western suburbs, Erin grew up constantly curious to learn something new, playing several sports and instruments, and loving reading (and analyzing) stories as much as telling them. Her 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. After accidentally discovering her singing voice at the third grade talent show, Erin began formal voice training and a welcome to the world of musical theatre.

Erin continued training and performing in high school, while also joining the record holding Downers Grove South Speech Team. In her four years on the team, Erin won three individual event state championships, and was a three-time 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. She loves meeting new dogs and watching people suddenly hear music; joyful, daily occurrences in the hustle of New York.
