Courtney Nolan Smith is a singer, actress and dancer originally from Milton, MA.

Courtney is a graduate of Noble and Greenough High School in Dedham, MA where she was an active member of the theatre and music departments (graduating with a faculty commendation for "her immense contributions to the performing arts"), as well as a varsity athlete, middle school mentor and editor of the yearbook. While at Nobles, she sang with the Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, Octazz and the all-female a cappella group, Greensleeves.

Upon her graduation from high school, Courtney headed south to the University of Miami (FL), where she received a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre. Courtney performed in numerous productions at UM, including: Baby, A Girl's Guide to Chaos, The Blue Hour, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Broadway Bound, Hello Again and Standard Time, a concert at the Ritz-Carlton on Key Biscayne. While at UM, Courtney was also a member of "UM Ovation," a high energy performace dance group that performed at charities and social events throughout southern Florida.

In her senior year at UM Courtney was cast in the lead role of "Kylie" in the new musical "Hello, My Name Is..." The show was conceived, written, directed and produced by UM theatre students under the direction of Tony-Award winning producer Barry Brown. "Hello, My Name Is..." tells the story of five people in a substance abuse program as they deal with life, love, family and overcoming their addictions. "Hello, My Name Is..." is currently being revised and reconceived for what we hope will be a future performance in NYC.... Stay tuned!

Since graduating from UM, Courtney has performed at theatres all over the country, from New York to California and back again!

Courtney currently resides in New York City.
