The Very Latest

Fall 2022 Updates

Just wrapped up on Pirandello Project with the Barnard Theatre Department in which I played Mrs. Cinni-Nenni and Others! It was such a wonderful and unique experience getting to do the work of a rarely performed playwright and getting to engage in devising work with an incredible ensemble! Next up I am the Assistant Props coordinator for Barnard Theatre Department’s upcoming production of “Fedra: Queen of Haiti”.

Additionally, I have been accepted to study abroad at the British American Drama Academy’s London Theatre Program for Spring 2023!


Dear Visitors,

My name is Sydney Gerlach and after growing up in California, I am now based in New York City where I am a student at Barnard College of Columbia University and pursuing degrees in Theatre and Education Studies.

I’ve been performing for over a decade on both the East and West Coasts.  My passion for performance first bloomed when after my first dance recital at the age of three, I excitedly asked my parents if I could “do it again” about 30 seconds after walking off stage.

Over the past 12 years, I’ve had the privilege to work with a wide range of talented teachers and artists and be a part of a diverse range of productions and projects.  In addition, I have consistently worked to hone my performance skills in a variety of settings including various theatre and dance companies in Southern California, the Acting Workshop at The Bishops’ School of La Jolla where I attended high school, a summer intensive theatre program at Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London, and as part of the prestigious Cherubs Program at Northwestern University. Most recently, I participated in an acting intensive at Columbia University’s Paris campus.

Whether I am on stage playing a lead role for a full house or delivering a monologue for an audition, my passion for performance has never wavered.  I continue to seek out new and exciting opportunities to develop my craft and connect with artists who share my love of performing and telling stories.

Thank you very much for visiting my website and taking the time to learn a little bit more about me.  I would be honored and privileged to share my passion for performance as part of whatever artistic or commercial project you may be looking to cast.  I look forward to hearing from you.
