Rory Grace Wagner

Class of 2022

My comfort zone is like a little bubble around me and I pushed it in different directions and made it bigger and bigger until these objectives that seem totally crazy eventually fall within the realm of the possible

For Rory Grace Wagner (she/her), home is a relative thing.  She discovered life outside of the familiar surroundings of Beverly Hills, Michigan when at the age of 6, she moved to Shanghai, China and thus discovered her passion for performance and adventure.  Her love of characters began in middle school with the roles of Mungo, Scarecrow, and Eliza Doolittle.  While producing iMovie trailers about Hubba Bubba Gum and Polly Pockets, her enthusiasm for filmmaking began to emerge.  A born performer, Rory began to develop her career at the Shanghai American School with a faculty of accomplished performers from around the world.  Returning to the United States, Rory joined a nationally recognized college preparatory school known for their performing arts faculty and facilities.  She continued to grow her love for all facets of the arts not only through a variety of performances but also student directing and student filmmaking. She worked on 48-hour film projects during the summers and spent weeks at performing arts camps such as the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Ontario, Canada.  Rory honed her craft in London, England as she prepared for the role of Viola in Twelfth Night.  She possesses an inclination to travel the world and explore…adventure and curiosity is her middle name.  Rory cannot wait to bring joy to the world through her creative and artistic endeavors.
