A Bit About Me...
Rosie Callaghan is a proud graduate of both Dawson College’s Professional Theatre Program (Valedictorian) and Randolph College for the Performing Arts.

Since then, she has worked consistently as an actor in both Montreal and Toronto, jumping back and forth as need be. Rosie has also been part of the development of many new works, including The Hockey Sweater (Segal Centre), Momento Mori and The Woods Witch (Playwrights Workshop Montreal) and most notably as part of the Fringe hit “Captain Aurora”, making her known as a staple of the Montreal musical theatre community. Notable acting credits include "It Shoulda Been You" (Segal Centre/DWYT), "Frankenstein" (Kidoons/Geordie Theatre), “The Comedy of Errors” (MSTC), "Spring Awakening" (Persephone Productions), "Heathers: The Musical"(We Are Here Prod.), "tick, tick… BOOM!" (Rentrobuff) "HAIR" (In The Wings), and 2 National Tours. Along with her professional acting roles, Rosie also loves to host, having produced several cabarets of her own, and even lending her hand at hosting “Broadway Café”, The Segal Centre’s Musical Theatre open mic night. Rosie has also received numerous awards for her work, including two Broadway World Awards, NATS 2015 Most Promising and Best in Class, and an Alternative Film Fest award. She was also selected to be part of Eclipse Theatre's Emerging Artist Showcase. Rosie has branched out into voice work, having done spots for companies such as Air Canada, Bell Let’s Talk, Sail Activewear, Saputo, and Gardasil, among others. She is also one of the recipients of the 2021-2022 Banks Prize.
"I also greatly enjoyed Rosie Callaghan (Olympia) who I felt gave a scintillating performance as a young woman struggling with a personal civil war of self-identification versus the need to be loved." Randall Willis, Mooney on Theatre
"Rosie Callaghan, turns her small role of Anna into something unforgettable. She has one of the nicest voices I’ve ever heard, and her ability to project and articulate every word while singing is extraordinary." - Abby Elizabeth, Curtains Up
THE ADDAMS FAMILY
"I thought Rosie Callaghan as Alice Beineke had the clearest, strongest voice, and I’m glad she had a chance to show it off close to the end of Act 1." Lauren Stein, Mooney on Theatre
IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU
"Rosie Callaghan with her ethereal vocal chops here stands out as Jenny Steinberg, the emotional heart of the comedy. Her powerhouse but vulnerable rendition of “Beautiful” grounds It Should Been You with meaning beneath the madness. " -Camila Fitzgibbon, Montreal Theatre Hub
"The heart and soul of “Shoulda” belongs to Rosie Callaghan as stoical Jenny, a frequent target of her mother’s barbs. [...] Callaghan’s fluid, heart-felt vocals are absolutely flawless, bringing tears to our eyes. Jenny’s scenes with Marty, played by adorable Mikey Samra, are magical." Stephanie Ein, Mobtreal
"But the star of the show, Rosie Callaghan playing Jenny Steinberg, totally blew me away, and indeed lived up to her title as the star. She’s a powerhouse, both as an actor and singer, and her two big numbers were the highlights of the show. Her emotional range is huge, covering Jenny’s insecurities about her body image and her explosion of confidence when she refuses to be walked on." Danielle Eyer, Scripteditty
IN THIS HOUSE
“Callaghan's Remi is manic, loud, and honest, and she takes advantage of lengthy monologues and serious subject matter to hold audiences at attention. […]It certainly doesn't hurt that this cast were all more than capable of pulling of the accompaniment while in character; special recognition to both Callaghan and Atherly, whose rich voices were a perfect compliment to each other as they bounced around the church-turned-theatre space's high ceilings.” Isabella Perrone, BroadwayWorld
