On January 26, 1958 a legend was born…

Her name was Ellen Degeneres.  She went on to become one of the most successful and influential people in the world.

Exactly 38 years later, Ryan Sheehan was born. (That's me!) Naturally, he too was destined for greatness.

I’m a working actor based on (notin”) Cape Cod, MA. I graduated from Quinnipiac University with bachelor’s degrees in Theater and Film — my two passions! Some of my dream roles are Jamie in The Last Five Years, Johnny in American Idiot, and Guy in Once. Some of my favorite films are Manchester by the Sea, The Dark Knight, and The Florida Project.

Here are just a couple of the coolest highlights of my career thus far;

  • I have written, directed and acted in several new plays that received world premieres at The Barrow Group and Abingdon Theatre Company in New York City.

  • I've helped develop new works at Manhattan Theatre Club, New England Theatre Conference and Quinnipiac University alongside industry professionals including Broadway veteran Bill Nabel! (He was very cool.)

  • I was recently featured in an informational video series produced by Aetna to spread awareness about the impact and treatment of patients with opiate addiction. I played a heroin addict. Sorry mom!

I’ve been acting professionally for the past year at theaters around Cape Cod, including Cape Repertory Theatre, where I originated the role of Shawn in a new play called The Tuna Goddess.  You can see some of my other recent and upcoming projects here!

I currently live in Sandwich, MA.  (I attended Sandwich High School.  I live relatively close to one or two sandwich shops.  The town police cars say "Sandwich Police" on them.  It's all very funny.)  I’ll be moving to New York City in Fall 2019 where I will begin the next chapter of my acting career!
