About Caroline Santiago Turner

Caroline Santiago Turner is a senior in the B.F.A. Musical Theatre program and is pursuing a minor in Arts Management. She made her stage debut as a munchkin in The Wizard of Oz at 5 years old and has adored performing ever since. Most recently, Caroline was seen as Ilse in the senior class project of Spring Awakening, in the ensemble of IU Theatre’s The Threepenny Opera, and in IU Summer Theatre’s streamed production of Closer Than Ever.

This is Caroline’s second time performing in a production of Carrie: the Musical! As a rising high school senior, she played Margaret, for which she received the Arts for Life Best Youth Musical Performance Award. Other favorite performances include Little Women (Jo), Crazy for You (Louise), and Barbecue (Barbara). Up next, you can see Caroline as Phoebe in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder and as Hero in Much Ado About Nothing at Hope Summer Repertory Theatre!

Caroline is a proud member of the Wells Scholars Program at IU, and currently serves as Director of Development for University Players. She is immensely grateful to her family back in her hometown of St. Louis for their endless support. This performance is dedicated to her second family, IUMT, whom she will miss dearly.
