NICOLE MICHELLE HASKINS
ACTOR. VOCALIST. DIRECTOR. WRITER.
Theatre is my first love...truly.
Marching through a Detroit parochial school parading in the awkwardness puberty gifted me, I became a storyteller by happenstance.
I started my theatre education with MOSAIC Youth theatre of Detroit and moved onward to the Theatre department at Wayne State University all with the quiet hope of growing into a woman and an artist that my pops would be proud of.
I am an Actor, Artist, Director, Writer, Lipstick Hoarder, Vocalist, Musician, Cat mom, 2014 School at Steppenwolf Acting fellow and an Artistic Associate with Black Lives Black Words International Theatre Collective.
A Detroit Bred storyteller represented by the fierce women at Shirley Hamilton Talent.

"One of Chicagoland theatre’s treasures, Nicole Michelle Haskins splits sides as the nosy postmistress Effy. Persnickety and petulant, Haskins is clearly having a ball as the town busybody, using her remarkable vocal control to killer comedic effect."
