Hello, and welcome to my site! I am a New York based actor, singer, and dancer, and I am originally from Collegeville, Pennsylvania.
Shortly after graduating from Ithaca College with a BFA in Musical Theatre, I embarked on my first touring adventure with the EVITA National Tour understudying the role of THE MISTRESS.
While at IC, I played several main stage roles including Elle Woods in Legally Blonde and Young Alexander/Aaron in Coram Boy. I was also the teaching assistant for Movement for the Actor, a core class requirement for BFA students. This course explores the methods of Grotowski, Laban, Kundalini, and the Viewpoints.
I also have had some experience in the opera world. I sang the role of Lauretta in IC's production of Gianni Schicchi. And I also spent two consecutive summers as a Young Artist at the Glimmerglass Festival in Cooperstown, NY.
"Lauretta, Megan Ort...does beautiful justice to the famed aria 'O mio babbino caro.'" - Barbara Adams, The Ithaca Journal
"The leggy, energetic Ort steers this star vehicle with verve, wit and a ready ease with that invokes the best of the movie." - Ross Haarstad, Ithaca Times
The Music Man
"Glimmerglass Young Artist Megan Ort, as...Zaneeta, catches the eye immediately and stands out from the rest of the ensemble dancers at the school gymnasium during the rousing Seventy-Six Trombones. As an actress, Ort handsomely projects the image of the love-struck teen..." - David Abrams, MusicalCriticism.com
"Doubling as young Alexander and his son Arron, Megan Ort's shining soprano voice and energetic charm would steal the show ..." - Judith Pratt, Lansing Star
