Charlotte Knight

Charlotte Knight is a Canadian actor and musical theatre performer who recently starred in the iconic role of Elsa in Frozen, The Musical with Disney Cruise Line.

Raised in downtown Toronto, Canada, Charlotte began studying voice at the age of 8 and went on to complete her Bachelor of Music in Classical Voice at The University of Western Ontario. After working professionally in opera for several years – and never quite fitting in – Charlotte relocated to London, England to pursue a post-graduate diploma in Musical Theater at The Associated Studios – and she’s never looked back!

Pre-COVID, Charlotte split her time between Toronto and London, making her UK debut as Cinderella in Into The Woods at The Chelsea Theatre, immediately followed by the title role in the UK premiere of Strauss’ The Queen’s Lace Handkerchief with Opera Della Luna at Wilton’s Music Hall. She won 1st Place in the Stephen Sondheim Competition at The Associated Studios and appeared with Singers Achoired as a featured soloist and vocal captain in the UK premiere and promo tour for “Good Omens” on Amazon Prime.

In Canada, Charlotte debuted with the Niagara Symphony Orchestra as the featured soloist in Dream of Christmas…Rêve de Noël, followed by the role of Rosalia in West Side Story with both the Niagara Symphony Orchestra and the Windsor Symphony Orchestra. She was a semi-finalist in the 2017 Lotte Lenya Competition in New York, USA and advanced to the semi-final round of the Classical Singer Musical Theatre Competition in Chicago, USA. Charlotte has toured with To Be Determined Theatre Co. in a musical adaptation of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, and performed the roles of Josephine in HMS Pinafore, Cecily Cardew in Earnest, The Importance of Being and Hanna in Cousin from Nowhere with Toronto Operetta Theatre.

Charlotte is very excited to embark on this new and exciting journey with the cast and creative team for the Canadian premiere of C-O-N-T-A-C-T in her hometown!
