54 Below

A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

Despina Cheilas is thrilled to make her Off-Broadway debut at 54 Below! Originally from Smithtown and now studying at Stony Brook University, Despina has spent the last two years growing and honing her craft with RAFCO. Outside of theatre, she immersed herself in voice acting, acting in short films, and creating art. This opportunity means the world to her, and she is incredibly grateful for the love and support from her family, friends, mentors, and the entire creative team. Despina is excited to bring her passion and energy to the vibrant Off-Broadway community
