Caroline Bell is from Quispamsis, NB, where she first starred as Tree #2 and never looked back. A recent graduate of George Brown’s Theatre Performance Program, Caroline has had the great joy of performing in many Saint John and Toronto productions including: Cecily in The Importance of Being Earnest (Ravenous Theatre); Girlie in A Girl Should Know Her Etiquette (self-created); Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Helen of Troy in The Penelopiad (George Brown Theatre School); and Improviser in [INSERT TITLE HERE] The Musical!

Her role as Juliet in Saint John Theatre Company’s bilingual Romeo and Juliet when she was fifteen was a huge moment and inspired her to pursue this career as well as this wonderful program! She is so happy to be back sharing with the community that made her excited about acting in the first place, and snuggling with her cat.
