Tristen Buettel, a NYC native, was introduced to theatre at an early age and was captivated. She became a part of Broadway Dance Center's AIM Performing Company, began singing, and started performing in community theatre. She knew the theatre was her passion.

The love of story telling lead her to continue her education at Syracuse University, where she received her BFA in Musical Theatre.

After being a part of her first new musical, Ever After, at The Alliance Theatre, she is very excited to be starring as Elle in Legally Blonde this summer at Arts Center of Coastal Carolina in Hilton Head, SC!
