Jacqueline Daaleman is a graduate of the BFA Acting program at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM). Born and raised in northern New Jersey, no, she still does not know how to pump gas.

She started theatre at a young age, when her loving mother decided she had “too much energy” and had to do something with it. Jacqueline later continued theatre and found it as her passion.

Growing up she mainly sang and danced on stage, but found straight plays to be of more interest. Though she still loves to be in musicals, Jacqueline mainly delves into Shakespeare, new works, and anything comedic.

At CCM, she played Phoebe in Gracie Gardner’s world premiere of Very Dumb Kids, Voltaire in Candide with CCM Opera and Dabby Bryant in Our Country’s Good. Other favorite credits include: Ryan in Tales From the Cuckoo Club (Cincinnati Fringe Festival), Launce in The Two Gentleman of Verona with RADA (London, UK), Linda in Charlie’s Girls at the Boulder Fringe Festival and Pearl Bryan in Pearl Bryan with InBocca Performance (KY). 

Film credits and voice over credits include: Poetry Girl (Amazon), “CRAIG” and “A Model Friendship”. 

In addition to theatre, Jacqueline loves to sing, make people laugh, travel around the world, and foster puppies and kittens.

“…one of the strongest performances of the night was delivered by Jacqueline Daaleman as Ryan in portraying the emotional journey undergone by her character with a passion that was plainly evident…Daaleman’s physicality was especially impressive, maintaining Ryan’s signature quirks and behavior throughout the performance.”
