"Charissa Hogeland brings back to vibrant life the simple but ambitious, stage-struck and slightly bruised Sally Bowles...Hogeland’s Sally is sensual and silly, daring and duplicitous but always and forever present in the moment and heedless of the future. Her rendition of "Cabaret" will leave you with chills."
Charissa Hogeland is an NYC based actress, singer, and dancer, most recently seen in the regional premiere of The Cher Show at Ogunquit Playhouse as Lady. She then revised the role at Gateway Playhouse. Other theatrical credits include Disney's Frozen on Broadway as the Elsa understudy, Nicola in the 1st National Tour of Kinky Boots, Sally Bowles in two regional theatre productions of Cabaret, Daisy Buchannan in Baz: Star Crossed Love at the Palazzo Theatre in Vegas, and the original cast of Heathers: Off-Broadway where she closed out the run as Veronica. TV credits include NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime, and AMC's The Son.
Charissa is proud to be married to her hot Australian husband, Brenton Cosier. She has a great passion for storytelling, and has a deep gratitude for every moment she spends onstage. In addition to her time performing as an actress, she has been blessed to perform five solo concerts in Los Angeles, NYC, and Lincoln Nebraska. She has performed in concerts with various organizations all over the world. When she isn't onstage you can catch her teaching dance and musical theatre to students of varying ages. In the past few years she's had the great joy of teaching guest workshops at institutions like NYU, Joffrey Ballet School, and Western Connecticut State University. She enjoys going on hikes with her ornery little chihuahua, chilling out at a Yankees game, hunting for a great find at thrift stores and sales racks across America, and annoying her friends with her incredibly stupid sense of humor.
Charissa is available to book for concerts, masterclasses, and workshops.
Charissa is a proud member of both Actors Equity Association and SAG. She is represented by KMR Talent Agency.
"With an impressive palette of vocal tricks to paint with...Hogeland is undeniably the main reason to chase that Green Fairy to the Palazzo Theatre for BAZ."
