Hannah Connell

Hannah Connell found her way to performing when she found that people applaud her for being the quirky tall girl, something that comes quite naturally to her. Hannah has a BFA in Musical Theatre from The Conservatory at Southeast Missouri State University.

Once she got her degree, she high-tailed it out to NYC and now lives in Jersey where there’s grass, trees, and a handsome man she calls her husband. Hannah has an international children’s theatre tour under her belt as well as some time Can-Can dancing in Skagway, Alaska. When she’s not auditioning for Broadway or television, you can find her belting high C’s in her closet!
