Carolyn Marie Wright

A delightful blend of classical training, grounded storytelling and improvisational pep, Carolyn displays a dynamic range of characters: from a meticulous mom in Wini + George (opposite Katharine Ross) to every spunky Shakespearean heroine known to man.

Currently, she lives in Los Angeles where she serves as Manager of Education & Community Engagement at Geffen Playhouse and is Adjunct Faculty at Moorpark College in Theatre Arts. She performs regularly with The Second City Hollywood, Humanity Play Project, and Looseleaf Theatre Company.

Training includes: The Second City, The Groundlings, Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum, Yale (BA), NYU (MA) and UCLA (MFA).

A special shout out to Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford, CT and The Painted Turtle Camp in Lake Hughes, CA – both part of the SeriousFun Children’s Network. Carolyn is a long time supporter and volunteer, as well as former Entertainment Director and summer camp counselor in the Theater Program at Hole in the Wall. She is currently an Ambassador for The Painted Turtle in Southern California.

Yes, and…she loves Pat Benatar, cartwheels and her rescue dog Quincy.
