Camille Mancuso began her professional acting career at the young age of 8. Cast as “Jemima Potts” in the First Broadway National Tour of CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG, Camille received her equity card and traveled on a 36-city, 9-month tour of the U.S. and Canada, performing in some of the most prestigious theatres throughout the country.
Since then, Camille went on to star in the First National Tours of IRVING BERLIN’S WHITE CHRISTMAS with Lorna Luft (“Susan Waverly”), LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE with Melissa Gilbert (“Ruby”, “Carrie” u/s), and MARY POPPINS (“Jane Banks”), reaching professional stages in more than 70 cities within the U.S. and Canada.
At 12 years old, Camille fulfilled her dream of starring on Broadway when she was cast in MARY POPPINS at the New Amsterdam Theatre in NYC, making her the longest-standing “Jane Banks” in the history of the show. While on Broadway, Camille also released her first fantasy novel, “Through the Eyes of Eak,” which is available on amazon.com and kindle.com.
Throughout her young career, Mancuso has had the honor of singing the National Anthem at two Major League Baseball games (Colorado and Texas), has appeared in multiple television and radio segments, and has been a featured vocalist in professional studio recordings, including lending a voice to a series of educational audio books for English Egg. Camille also appeared on the 200th episode “Results Show” of ABC’s DANCING WITH THE STARS, performing the show-stopping number “Step in Time” with the cast of MARY POPPINS.
Camille thrives on helping others and has been actively involved in Broadway Kids Care, building homes with “Habitat for Humanity”, inspiring young children at the Ronald McDonald House, collecting donations for HIV/AIDS research, and visiting kids with cancer at local hospitals. She also had the privilege of performing in the second-ever all-autistic Broadway show of MARY POPPINS, which was featured on NBC NIGHTLY NEWS WITH BRIAN WILLIAMS (Video 1) (Video 2), and performed on two Broadway stages in one day (Minskoff/New Amsterdam) to raise money for BC/EFA.
Now a high school student, Camille still greatly enjoys acting and was most recently seen in her high school fall musical in the title role of “Peter Pan” as a freshman. She maintains a 4.0+ GPA (with all honors classes), and in addition to theatre, is heavily involved in writing competitions, debate teams, and “S-Club,” which focuses on empowering women and children.
Mancuso hopes to one day win a Tony Award, add film acting to her credits, travel the world, and write a popular fantasy book series. Until then, she enjoys reading, hanging out with friends, mentoring her little sister, and being a teenager.
