Cecelia Ticktin


Cecelia Ticktin is a New Jersey-based actress, writer, and singer-songwriter. Prior to the COVID Shutdown she toured the country with the Broadway Musical Wicked, standing by for the role of Elphaba. Since then she's been seen in the musical Kismet in Santa Barbara, CA (directed by Lonny Price), and Bay Street’s outdoor production of Camelot, which welcomed the residents of Sag Harbor back to the joy of live theater. She’s thrilled to be returning this summer to take part in the musical Ragtime!

As a writer, Cecelia has three current projects: A semi-autobiographical dark comedy series called CHRONIC that centers on a protagonist living with chronic pain (a finalist in Sundance’s 2021 Episodic Lab), a drama/mystery series called RELEASE that examines what unchecked grief can do to a person's psyche, and a full-length play called PASS that asks the question, "What happens when you think you're going to die, and then you live?" (She promises to write an office comedy next.)
