Wesley Cappiello (he/him) is a New York-based actor, dancer, singer, and playwright. Born in Princeton, NJ, this Jersey boy has been in love with the performing arts since a very young age. At six years old, Wesley could be found running around the house singing at the top of his lungs and dancing on any surface he could find. Not much has changed since. Wesley took a plethora of dance classes throughout elementary, middle, and high school ranging from ballet to jazz to tap, and everything in between. This set the foundation for Wesley to cultivate his love and passion for dance and performing. He holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from Montclair State University in Montclair, NJ.
Wesley has appeared in many regional productions in theaters including: The New York City Center in New York, NY, The Walnut Street Theatre and The Prince Music Theater in Philadelphia, PA, The Woodstock Playhouse in Woodstock, NY, and The Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA. Some of his favorite credits include: A Chorus Line (New York City Center Encores!, National Tour, International Tour), West Side Story, Gypsy, Cats, The Glass Menagerie, and This Is Our Youth.
Wesley received a BroadwayWorld Regional Theater Award Nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Musical (Professional) for his performance in A Chorus Line at The Clear Space Theatre Company in Rehoboth Beach, DE; as well as an NJACT Perry Award Nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his performance in West Side Story at the Axelrod Performing Arts Center in Deal, NJ.
When not onstage, Wesley can typically be found trying out new recipes in the kitchen, listening to true crime podcasts, and writing. However, most frequently, he can be found snuggled up with his cat, Valentino Versace.
