Hallie Seline is a Montreal/Toronto-based actor with her home-base in Toronto. After graduating from the Professional Acting program at Sheridan College and the Theatre and Drama Studies Specialist joint program from the University of Toronto, Hallie has since been busy growing roots in Toronto. She is one of the founding members of The Howland Company, one of Toronto’s most exciting independent theatre ensembles, past RBC Emerging Company in Residence at Canadian Stage, and best known for their acclaimed sold-out productions like The Wolves, Punk Rock and 52 Pick-Up.
2018 was an exciting and busy season of growth and new adventures. Hallie was the lead producer and acted as part of the Dora Mavor Moore Award-nominated ensemble of The Howland Company’s Toronto premiere of PUNK ROCK by Simon Stephens, directed by Gregory Prest. She was thrilled to follow this with acting in the Toronto Premiere of Pulitzer-finalist The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe, a Howland Company and Crow’s Theatre production last Fall, which was selected as one of the Top 10 Theatre Shows of 2018 by the Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail and NOW Magazine alongside PUNK ROCK.
She was delighted to kick off 2019 by taking on the lead role of Rosalind in Shakespeare’s As You Like It, rejoining the incredible artists of Shakespeare BASH’d, Toronto’s Best Site-Specific Theatre Company (NOW Magazine), for the fifth time. She is excited to follow this by heading to the sandy beaches of Port Dover for the summer to act in Marie Beath Badian’s Prairie Nurse as Patsy at the Lighthouse Theatre Festival, directed by Audrey Dwyer.
Among the many other hats she likes to wear, from marketing, publicity, producing and sound designing, she is also the Co-Founder and Editor in Chief of inthegreenroom.ca, a theatre/arts website dedicated to be a “space for artists to connect off stage”.
