BIO

Robyn Rae Stype is an non-union actress currently based in Columbus, Ohio.

 

Born and raised in Columbus, her passion for performance started at an early age. After years of school plays and concerts, Robyn attended Kenyon College, where she earned her BA in Drama. She spent part of her junior year in New York City, studying new play development at Ensemble Studio Theatre's NY Theatre Intensives and experimental theatre at La MaMa ETC. In her senior year, she received the W. Ray Ashford Award for Excellence in Drama for the sum of her theatre work at Kenyon.

 

After graduation, Robyn spent time in the Columbus theatre community, working as an acting intern and understudy with New Players Theater, and performing in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and the world premiere of Jane Eyre: A Memory, a Fever, a Dream with Available Light Theatre.

 

Robyn moved to Chicago in November of 2012, where she ventured in front of the camera, appearing in the web series Windy City Hostel and in a film for the Chicago 48 Hour Film Project.  In Fall of 2013, she acted in a staged reading for Pride Films & Plays, and played Hermia in Edge of the Wood Theatre's resident production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. 

 

Now back in Columbus, Robyn has ventured into directing and theatre education. She had the great pleasure of directing a short play in Available Light's 24 Hour Theatre event in November 2014, and she is Assistant Director of Theatre for the 2014-15 season at the Wellington School.
