Hi! I'm Carly Gendell. I am a singer, dancer, and actor originally from Amesbury, Massachusetts. I caught the acting bug from my sister, Haley, and haven't stopped since! I made my Broadway Debut as “Marcy” in the Original Broadway Cast of School of Rock, where I head banged eight times a week at the Winter Garden Theater. Even at a young age, I was grateful for every single moment, and knew theater is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
Some of my favorite productions include “Annie” at Flat Rock Playhouse and the Ordway Center of the Performing Arts, and “Alison” in the East Coast premiere of A Walk on the Moon at George Street Playhouse. You can hear me on the TV show Jessica Jones and in a commercial for My Little Pony. I have been in several readings for new theatrical work - I love seeing the evolution of theater work!
I recently graduated from the Professional Performing Arts School as their 2023 Valedictorian and the Recipient of their Musical Theater Award. I was quite literally OVER THE MOON to play Maureen in their production of “Rent.” I was so happy to bring such an impactful story to the school community, and to play such a fun character. Because of PPAS, I performed for the NYC Mayor at his Inner Circle Gala, appeared on New York 1 for a News Segment on the production, and received a Roger Rees nomination. I am now receiving my BFA in Musical Theater at Pace University. I’m having a blast there making new friends and honing my craft!
When I am not in class or performing, I love going shopping, trying out new places to eat, exploring the city, or treating myself to a Strawberry Dragon fruit refresher from Dunkin’. Thank you for visiting my website!
