Christine Dwyer hails from right outside of Boston, Massachusetts where she discovered her love of Boston sports and musical theatre. After graduating high school, Christine attended The Hartt School where she acquired a B.F.A. in musical theatre and a minor in English. Immediately after graduating, Christine and her mom trekked to NYC so she could audition for the national tour of the hit musical Rent. She ended up booking the principal role of Maureen Johnson and left to tour the country, Canada, and Japan. After finally moving to NYC, Christine booked the 2nd national tour of Wicked as the Elphaba understudy under the direction of multiple Tony Award winner, Joe Mantello. Through hard work and perseverance, Christine made her through the ranks at Wicked, quickly becoming the Standby for Elphaba and then taking over fo the role of Elphaba. After her run as Elphaba on tour, Wicked brought her to Broadway to make her Broadway day as the lovable green witch and flew high for several years, returning time and time again to play her dream role. She even played the role for President Obama and on the Tony Awards for the show's Tenth Anniversary Christine left Wicked to play Sara in the new rock musical Murder Ballad as well as several readings of new musicals in NYC. Christine then booked her first feature film as a lead character named Holly in Sleep No More with director Phillip Guzman. In 2016 Christine opened the first national tour of Finding Neverland as Sylvia Lewellyn Davies, making her only the second person to ever play the role. This show was directed by yet again another Tony Award winner, Diane Paulus. Christine then starred opposite John Legend, Sara Bareilles, Alice Cooper, and Brandon Victor Dixon in the Emmy and Grammy winning "Jesus Christ Superstar LIVE" on NBC. Closely following her time with JCS Christine landed the leading role of Jenna in Waitress on the 1st National Tour. She got to have her real husband play her stage nasty husband as she toured the country and Canada for over a year. Through their mutual love of performing, Christine and her husband, Matt DeAngelis (another Broadway vet and TV/Film actor) formed a coaching business called “The Working Studio” to help up and comers, National Tour and Broadway performers alike realize their dreams and pursue a career with the help of two working actors.
