About the Artist

Alyssa Batsakis (she/her) is a professional actor, vocalist, host, & acting coach, currently based in the Boston area. She is actively seeking tv/film & commercial representation. ​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 and graduated with the highest GPA in The Ira Brind School for Theatre Arts.

 

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 has participated in 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 in the Philadelphia area such as, The Walnut Street Theatre, The Media Theatre and The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.

 

During the pandemic, Alyssa moved to the Boston area 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.

Up next, Alyssa plans to return to the Cincinnati area and has a career goal to open a non-profit regional theater and collaborate with her sister, who is a fashion & costume designer. Together they have a collective goal of bringing more art access to that region, providing more opportunities for the professional artists of the greater Cincinnati area and 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.
