Andrew Clancey is an actor, cellist, and teaching artist based in Chicago. Since receiving his BA in Theatre Arts, he has primarily been performing onstage in Chicago, the Chicagoland area, and all over the Midwest. He’s performed with fantastic theater companies, such as Artemisia, A Chicago Theatre, Oil Lamp Theater, Mercy Street Theatre, 20% Theatre Company Chicago, Citadel Theatre Company, and Theater Cedar Rapids. When he’s not acting, he’s still working passionately on youth theatre programming for Compass Creative Dramatics (or CCD), a company focused on creating arts enrichment experiences for students and empowering them to be brave and creative through a variety of workshops, camps, and residencies. In addition to the year-round educational touring and administrative work he does with CCD, he is also a teaching artist for Emerald City Theatre. He loves collaborating on new works and delving into characters that challenge his point of view and cultural perspective.
