"As a singer and dancer, my first focus is always story-telling. I cherish emotionally dynamic and technically complex roles; the more challenging, the better! Whether it's the leading lady or ensemble, I focus on empowering my characters with charisma, independence and humor."
"Director and choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler has assembled a tremendously talented cast of up-and-coming, non-Equity, artists ... The ensemble cast of dancers showcases Blankenbuehler’s original—2017 Tony Award-winning—choreography in truly spectacular, breathtaking, fashion."
- Meaghan Hannan Davant, DC Theatre Scene
"Kaitlyn Mayse, as Ella, showcases powerful vocals throughout the show and adds some spunk to the character, which is refreshing. Her dancing, singing, and stage presence are truly breathtaking."
- Natasha Ashley, BroadwayWorld.com
"Mayse, a true working professional, made her dreams come true by playing a girl's dream role, and changing the world in which we live by doing so."
- Craig Richardson, BroadwayWorld.com
"Kaitlyn Mayse as Ella is to the cinders born, as good as any Disney princess with a lovely voice and sincerity in her acting."
- Linda Lowen, Syracuse Entertainment
"The blond, lithe Mayse as the title character is as romantic a figure as any child could wish for. Mayse delivers the songs (especially “In My Own Little Corner”) in a fine soprano and an assertive personality..."
- Iris Fanger, The Patriot Ledger
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
"Belle, the beauty of the title, was a model of intelligence, warmth, and courage in the portrayal by Kaitlyn Mayse, who perceptively delineated the development of Belle's feeling for the beast."
- Gerry Kowarsky, Two on the Aisle
"Jason Michael Evans (the Beast) played quite well off of Kaitlyn Mayse’s independent Belle ... Mayse’s superb voice shaped a number of the show’s tunes with beauty and grace."
- Mark Bretz, Ladue News
"Although the choral numbers were clear and strong, Kaitlyn Mayse brought a breath of fresh air as Martha Jefferson, and not a word was lost from the singing lead."
- Lou Harry, Indianapolis Business Journal
"...especially by the performances of Kaitlyn Mayse (Helene) and Julia Thorn (Nickie) whose portrayal of Charity’s BFFs provide a fiery addition of girl-power that is only enhanced by their own superior levels of artistry. These women are what the stage has admirably labeled “triple-threats,” performers who excel in the area of dance, singing, and acting. The ideal trifecta that is only further enhanced by their ability to balance comedy with sex-appeal. Brava, ladies. Brava."
