Socks Whitmore (they/them/theirs)

Actor, Playwright, Lyricist-Composer, Critic, Producer, Director

Socks Whitmore is an agender/gender non-conforming performer, composer, and storyteller rooted in voice and text.

You can hear their voice and musical talents on stage (including their original works We Are Here and Back to One: A Coming of Self Musical), on screen (The Magical Christmas Tree, The Once), and behind the mic in audio dramas (Georgie Romero Is Done For, The Sheridan Tapes, Life with Leo(h)), video games (Detour Bus, To Remember A Friend, Georgia), audiobooks (the Narwhal & Jelly series, This Is Our Rainbow), and countless animations. On fancier occasions, they’ve performed in renowned spaces such as the Grand Ole Opry, Carnegie Hall, and the Sydney Opera House.

Their creative work has been produced by New Musicals Inc. and Overtone Industries, and published by American Composers Forum, the Sappho Small Talk blog, Translash Media, and Queer Quarterly magazine, among others. A self-described “professional overachiever,” Socks likes to keep busy—if they’re not recording VO or writing a new musical, they can be found working on choral music, indie games, short fiction, or amassing large amounts of socks. For those who are curious, they hold a BFA Performer-Composer degree from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) with minors in Digital Arts and Creative Writing.
