Eden Neuendorf is originally from Iowa where she started performing in improv, story-telling, mock trials, school musicals as well as playing the trumpet at a very early age. She attended the University of Northern Iowa where she earned her BA in Theatre Performance. During her time at UNI, she played such roles as Edward/Betty in Carol Churchill's Cloud 9, Simone in Marat/Sade, and Natasha in The Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov. She was really motivated by these roles to pursue acting professionally.
After graduation, Eden relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2010 for an internship at the California Shakespeare Theatre where she went on to become the Artistic Coordinator. While working at Cal Shakes, she began auditioning for the Bay Area theatre scene and since then she has been seen in over 20 productions, new play workshops, and staged readings, often playing the lead role. She had the opportunity to perform three times for the Eugene O'Neill Festival, playing such epic roles as Lavinia in Mourning Becomes Electra and Anna in Anna Christie and Chris Christopherson in rep.
She soon became a company member at the Custom Made Theatre Co. in San Francisco where she performed such roles as Felicity in Christopher Durang's Why Torture Is Wrong and The People Who Love Them and the audience's favorite Kalina in Bruce Norris' Pain and the Itch. She also serves the role of Company Manager at Custom Made.
After 4 years of performing professionally, Eden decided to focus on the Bay Area's new play development scene. She has done numerous staged readings and new play festivals, including TheatrePub's Pint Sized Plays and regular appearances in the monthly 5-minute-play festival ShotzSF.
From April 2013-February 2016, Eden was the Associate Producer and Casting Director for Bay Area Children's Theatre where she helped produce and cast up to 8 shows annually.
Eden currently lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and their shihtzu. She's taking improv and voiceover classes in preparation of the next step in her career.
