MELANCHOLY PLAY A CHAMBER MUSICAL with Piven Theatre Workshop -
Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune: "Stockstill, an emerging talent in Chicago"
Patrick O’Brien for chicagolandmusicaltheatre.com: "Stockstill, as the linchpin of the show, has the wildest emotional journey, from intense melancholy to intense happiness to a contentedness somewhere in between, and is immensely likeable and believable throughout. She is also in possession of a gorgeous soprano that easily flits between the bubbly and the lovely languorous aspects of the score."
Marissa Oberlander of the Chicago Reader: "Stephanie Stockstill is a charming delight as Tilly, a bank teller who scoops up paramours with her sweet suffering and moody melodrama."
NORTHANGER ABBEY with Lifeline Theatre
Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune: "Stephanie Stockstill, the very charming star of "Northanger Abbey," is a big talent — she was equally as impressive as Tilly in Sarah Ruhl's "Melancholy Play" at Piven Theatre. She captures that Austen sweet spot."
Jamie Mermelstein of Time Out Chicago: "The play’s whimsy and charm are largely contingent on Catherine. As her fantasies and realities intertwine on set, we’re anchored by Stockstill’s splendid performance. Her beautiful soprano shines throughout the entire score, and she makes Catherine’s charming naiveté bewitching"
Patrick O'Brien of BroadwayWorld.com: "Stockstill is a game actress with a shockingly good soprano, who takes such apparent joy in the macabre, and who grows from girl to woman before our eyes as she embraces the sweet and indelicate complexities of life. A career to follow, for sure."
THE STUDENT PRINCE with Chicago Light Opera Works -
Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune: "In the smart but rather thankless role of Princess Margaret, the Prince's prearranged spouse, Stephanie Stockstill is simply wonderful, taking a fanciful, stock situation and somehow putting you in mind of loves lost, mistakes made and circumstances regretted all around. She had a tear in my eye."
