BA in Theatre, Acting
Scarlet Sheppard is thrilled to be part of Columbia’s 2014 Senior Showcase; something she’s been hoping to do since her freshman year! Originally from West Virginia, Scarlet has been performing in various capacities her entire life. From ballet to bass guitar, she tried her hand at (almost) all of it before setting the goal of becoming a professional actor. Since then, she’s performed in fifty stage productions ranging from outdoor Shakespeare to sketch comedy at Second City, as well as in over thirty student and independent films. Some of her favorite past roles include Anne in All My Sons, Semiramis in The Chairs, Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, and all of her chances to originate characters for new works. Scarlet hopes to participate in the world of professional Chicago theatre this summer before eventually moving to LA to pursue film and television.
