Clarissa Marie Ligon is a born and raised New Yorker and self-proclaimed renaissance woman who makes art because she believes it can change the world. She believes nothing is out of reach when you put your mind to it.

Clarissa started her journey in the arts when she learned to play the violin with the Noel Pointer Foundation at the age of six, (the youngest person in the program at its inception). She expanded her music knowledge over the yearby attending LaGuardia High School of Music and Art & the Performing Arts where she studied classical vocal music and opera.

She began her career as a stage manager when her acting mentor noticed her go getter attitude and quick problem solving skills. Clarissa likes to joke that she was bound to become a stage manager because she’s a bit nosy (in that loveable, subtle way 😉 ) and will tell you most of her skills were gained while “stage managing” her 6 younger siblings as a child.

Today, Clarissa continues to work freelance as a stage manager, a performer and a creative. When she isn’t running a show (both on and offline), you can find Clarissa on the stage singing, dancing or producing as her burlesque persona Chubbi Bunni Sinclair.

She doesn’t believe in boxing herself into one aspect in the arts. She firmly believes that not even the sky is not the limit and continues to challenge herself in her work.

Past work includes: Dana H. at The Vineyard Theatre, Measure for Measure at The Public (Mobile Unit), Before The Meeting at Williamstown Theatre Festival, Jack & at BAM Fisher, Black Light at the Greenwich House Theatre, Cruel Intentions The Musical at le Poisson Rouge, 3/Fifths at 3LD, and Penny Arcade’s Longing Lasts Longer at St. Anne’s Warehouse.
