YELLOWSTONE REPERTORY THEATRE DELIVERS "EMOTIONAL KNOCKOUT" PLAY -
'RABBIT HOLE,' STARRING CASIDEE RILEY
Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for drama, 'Rabbit Hole' is Yellowstone Repertory Theatre's first production of its third season and a show audiences are calling “honest,” “powerful,” and a “don’t miss” show.
NEW INDEPENDENT FEATURE - 'WE BURN LIKE THIS'
Casidee is thrilled to be a part of the new independent feature filming in Montana, 'We Burn Like This,' playing Maggie.
When 22-year-old Rae, a descendant of Holocaust survivors, is targeted by neo-Nazis in Billings, Montana, her ancestor’s trauma becomes real.
Rae returns home to her mother and uncovers the truth about a childhood accident, and she must learn to forgive herself, her mother, and the broken world.
Inspired by true events, this coming-of-age story shows the inherited effects of historical trauma and the strength of survival and healing.
YELLOWSTONE REPERTORY THEATRE'S
'THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST'
A show that has been on her bucket list since junior high, Casidee plays Gwendolyn in Yellowstone Repertory Theatre's 'The Importance of Being Earnest.'
'The Importance of Being Earnest' has proven to be Oscar Wilde’s most enduring—and endearing—plays. Filled with witty Victorian aphorisms and Wilde’s own brand of wisdom, it tells the story of Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff who use clever deception and truth-bending to accommodate their social pursuits. Oscar Wilde builds a farcical world of Victorian social mores by using double entendre, aphorisms, and witty repartee.

NOVA's final show for the 2016-17 season is the Broadway smash that brought us popular hits such as 'Big Spender' and 'Rhythm of Life.'
'THE NEW REPUBLIC'
Casidee’s final project before moving back to Montana was on the new feature film, 'The New Republic.'
Starring Owen Beckman, Anthony Tyler Quinn and Jeremy Ratchford, this thriller takes place in the near future where a young journalist is blackmailed by a powerful government agency to spy on an underground nationalist group.
UPDATE: The film premiered at Hollywood's Raleigh Studios on April 14, 2011.
