Cass Iacovelli is a writer, performer, designer and producer currently based in Toronto. Cass has worked on shows on every scale, from one-woman professional productions to 30-person student musicals. She has produced over 20 productions, winning "Best Producer" at the 2022 UofT Drama Coalition Awards. Her design work has won her awards such as the "IATSE Local 58 Award for Technical Achievement" at the 2023 Hart House UofT Drama Festival and "Best Lighting Design" at the 2023 UofT Drama Coalition Awards. She has won "Best Performance in a Supporting Role" for her role as Fräulein Schneider (Cabaret, 2023) and is a newly-published playwright. She is graduating from the University of Toronto with an Honours B.A. in Theatre and Bioethics.

Outside of theatre, Cass works in community care and advocacy, particularly in harm reduction spaces with at-risk queer youth. Although these two sides of her life rarely intersect, most of Cass' work in theatre-creation and playwriting focuses on the impacts of trauma and the human desire for giving & receiving care.
