about tatum


Tatum Langley is a current musical theatre BFA student wiggling around at Ball State University, and is also an active jazz vocalist, arts & crafts extraordinaire, and plant mom all rolled into one spunky little body. She grew up in the wonderful western suburbs of Chicago, where she was a finalist in the Illinois High School Musical Theatre Awards in 2016 and 2017. Regionally, she was seen as a singer/dancer at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio in 2020, and will be returning this summer. Some of her most recent collegiate credits include Irene Roth in Crazy For You (sadly cut short due to COVID-19), Woman 2 in Songs for a New World, and Christopher Robin in Winnie the Pooh

When Tatum is not onstage, you can catch her singing and scatting as the Ball State Jazz Ensemble’s primary vocalist. Although theatre is where her love began, she is enamored by the likes of Cole Porter, Chet Baker, and Post-Modern Jukebox.

Among these accolades, Tatum does it all. She recently worked in a masterclass with Gavin Creel at "The Cabaret" in Indianapolis, where she also opened for Caissie Levy, and currently interns, and her dramaturgy work for a production of Dead Man’s Cellphone recently won 3rd place in the regional Kennedy Center Awards Festival

Outside of theatre work, Tatum enjoys yoga, baking, every arts & crafts project she can get her hands on, advocating for women's rights, keeping all her houseplants alive, exploring new zero-waste/sustainable alternatives, and playing Rummikub with her family, whom she loves more than anything in the world. 

Stay posted to her social media for updates on upcoming performances, concerts, and all the antics she's up to!
