About the Artist

Alyssa Batsakis (she/her) is a professional actor, vocalist, host, & acting coach, currently based in the Cincinnati area. 

 

Originally from a small town right outside Cincinnati, raised by a big Greek and Midwestern family, Alyssa relocated to the East Coast and received her training and education from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she earned her BFA in Musical Theater.

 

While studying at UArts and in the early part of her career, Alyssa dipped her toes in whatever artistic endeavors she could - getting a mix of experience on acting, teaching artist and directing contracts. She received additional training with masterclasses and workshops at The London Academy of Dramatic Arts for Shakespeare performance and The Royal Conservatoire in Scotland for Contemporary performance. She has performed at prestigious venues such as the off-broadway theatre, Ars Nova in NYC and has worked as an actor & teaching artist at well-known companies such as, The Walnut Street Theatre and The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.

 

During the pandemic, Alyssa moved to the Boston area for a short time and decided to expand her career more on-screen, as well. She worked on several commercials, film, tv & industrial projects while there, as both an actor and host. She also continued to expand her own virtual acting coaching business.

Recently, Alyssa returned to her home city of Cincinnati to continue her acting and hosting career on screen and stage, having recently signed with Heyman Talent Agency for film/tv, commercial and hosting representation. With the Cincinnati area continuing to grow in both the theatrical and film industries (it was even voted one of the best spots for filmmakers in 2022!!), Alyssa is excited to see how her career can continue to expand with the flourishing community. She also has a career goal to open a non-profit regional theater, with a focus on bringing more art access to the Cincinnati area, providing more opportunities for the professional artists here. She also wants to provide a place where students who wish to pursue an artistic field can learn and grow, alongside working professionals. She wants to be part of the change she wishes to see in the theater industry. More on this to come soon!

A few organizations she is passionate about include: American Civil Liberties Union, PFLAGThe Human Rights Campaign & Women Helping Women.

 

In her free time she enjoys hosting dinner parties, traveling and spending quality time with her husband, family and friends.
