Ellis Gage (born June 27, 1999) is an American singer and actor.

Biography[edit]

Gage was born in Methuen, Massachusetts. In 2010, aged 11, he alternated the role of James (played principally by Justin Lawrence Hall) in the original company of James and the Giant Peach by Timothy Allen McDonald, Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul based on Roald Dahl's 1961 book of the same name, which had its tryout production at Goodspeed Musicals directed by Graciela Danielle.[1][2] The following year, he played Marty in Michael Kooman and Chris Dimond's musical Dani Girl during its development under Scott Schwartz's direction at Cherry Lane Theatre off-Broadway with Rozi Baker, John Bolton, and Jayne Paterson - he and Baker being two of the first real children to play Dani and Marty. He also played Colin in Jane Staab and Susan Kosoff's musical adaptation of The Secret Garden which debuted in Boston at Wheelock Family Theatre.[3][4][5][6][7] From 2011-2012, he played Prince Alexander in "Rumpelstiltskin The Musical" by Steve Marzullo at the Workshop Theater in NYC.[8][9] He won the 2012 IRNE (Independent Reviewers of New England) Award in the "Best Performance by a Young Actor" category for his performance as Prince Chulalongkorn in The King and I at North Shore Music Theatre starring Lorenzo Lamas and Kate Fisher.[10][11] In 2012-2013, he was known as "the kid with the big belt" on Seth Rudetsky's radio show Seth Speaks on Sirius XM Radio[12] and he also appeared in a 4-person revue for the City of New York titled Welcome to NYC, singing opposite Robert Cuccioli, Bailey Grey, and LaChanze.

From 2010-2013, Gage was a boy soprano performing and recording new opera material by Glen Roven and Stephen Schwartz with artists like Catherine Zeta-Jones, Michael Douglass, and Lauren Flannigan.[13] He played John Darling in Phyllis Newman's adaptation of her late husband Adolph Green's "Peter Pan" musical titled "Flying to Neverland" for American Opera Projects[14] and was seen in workshop presentations of Roven's adaptation of Dr. Seuss's The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. He was a vocalist for The Metropolitan Opera's featured contemporary works, and sang roles at Boston Lyric Opera.[15][16]

As a teenager, he stopped performing to study at St. Mark's School, where, in 2014, he independently created the institution's first musical theatre program in 20 years.[17][18][19] In 2017, after graduating from at St. Mark's, he was cast recruited to sing with the American version of the jazz vocal group "The FlyBoys" of Britain's Got Talent, toured the tri-state area, and subsequently was cast in Imaginary Boy, the developing musical by Daniel Neiden and June Rachelson Ospa for the Tourette Association of America, as Michael; a character based on politician Stephen McCall during his high school years. Gage played the role to mass acclaim in developmental presentations with Kecia Lewis-Evans, Carmen Ruby Floyd, Jay O. Sanders, and Noah Marlowe, also singing the role on the concept recording released by Living Lotus Project.[20] In 2019, Gage was seen in the ensemble of Ryan McCurdy and Lauren Widner's musical The Currents at Carriage House Theatre months before Widner's death, and in 2021, he starred as John alongside Kennedy Caughell and Seth Tucker in the professional world premiere of Danny K. Bernstein's musical "Far From Canterbury" at The Barnstormers Theatre.[21][22]

Gage has provided voiceover work for Hasbro as well as English vocals for "Scoop" in the Japanese Poupelle of Chimney Town franchise based on Akihiro Nishino's children's book.[23][24]
