Nellie
Shuford

Singer & Actor

 

Nellie has been putting off updating her website for the last year and a half. But if that last year and a half has taught her anything, it’s that there’s no time like the present. 


A Chicagoland native, Nellie got bit by the theater bug, as they say, in fourth grade when she first backed out of an audition the night before. The show was Bye Bye Birdie, the role was ensemble. The next year Nellie landed Sister Sophia in The Sound of Music, sealing her fate with a show she would go on to do (to date) three more times. 


Since then Nellie hasn’t stopped playing older women; finding particular passion playing the funny, bizarre, sad, thoughtful, inspiring, and larger than life characters. In a continuous search for the purpose of life, the best answer Nellie has found so far is collaboratively sharing stories with others. 

When Nellie is not on stage (or daylighting as a retail associate), she can be found snuggling with her cats or crafting.
