Casey Sartori


Casey Sartori is a New York native who recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film and television. Finding her passion early, Casey walked in the local theater circuit in her youth, slowly working her way out of ensemble to play roles like the Wicked Witch of the West in a stage production of The Wizard of Oz and the titular role of Peter Pan. She is very grateful for the opportunity to return to the stage after an almost decade hiatus, and is particularly thankful to be working alongside such wonderful people. This performance is dedicated to the person she admires most in her family —

her grandma and her guardian angel, Kathleen.
