Caitlin is a recent graduate from the part-time program at 16th Street Actors Studio, where she studied under acclaimed teachers including one of Australia’s finest directors, Iain Sinclair, Actors Studio NYC Life Member Bronwen Coleman, and William Esper Studios NYC's Jason Raftopoulos. During her training she also participated in intensive training with Elizabeth Kemp (The Method), Carol Rosenfeld (Uta Hagen), Les Chantery (Audition Technique), Patsy Rodenburg (Shakespeare and Voice) and Anthony Wong (The Chubbuck Technique).

Recent theatre credits including Sir Robert Chiltern in 'An Ideal Husband' with Boutique Theatre Company, The Narrator in ‘Night Terrors’ with The X Gene for Melbourne Fringe Festival, and Elizabeth Bennet in ‘Pride and Prejudice’ with 24 Carrot Productions.

Caitlin has appeared in many short films including 'The Darkness' (dir. Paul Khoury, The X Gene) which was an official selection as part of The Other Film Festival 2016. Most recently she appeared as Nicola Sellers in ‘Real Melbourne’ (dir. Melanie Killingsworth, Dexter Goes Woof Productions) which was an official selection of Melbourne WebFest 2019.

Musical theatre credits include the Australian Premiere of High Fidelity with Pursued By Bear (2014), and as Olive Ostrovsky in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee with Vic Theatre Company (2016). Caitlin has also worked with some of Australia’s best-known directors, including Martin Croft and Chris Parker with Footlight Productions.





“Mathieson’s performance is nothing short of amazing… she embodied each character, seamlessly shifting between narration and dialogue, expressing their terror, insecurities, even their humility… She makes you feel totally captivated and invested.” 

- Vanessa Giron, Witness Performance 2018

“The star that is Caitlin Mathieson commanded the space for just over an hour, embodying different characters as she told four classic tales of terror. I was in awe of Caitlin Mathieson’s ability to smoothly glide from scene to scene, from character to character with a great command of text. There were points where she absolutely embodied the people in the stories, moving around the church with her wonderfully expressive voice and face which drew the audience in.” 

- Joana Simmons, Theatre Press 2018

“Night Terrors is wonderfully performed by Caitlin Mathieson… showing the strength and versatility of the actor.”

- Angela Perez, Be Melbourne 2018

"Caitlin Mathieson simply embodied ‘Olive’. Her portrayal was natural... Her quaintness was pure gold and allowed for a strong contrast to the raw emotion that poured out during ‘The I Love You Song’."

- Krystal Holzer, Theatrepeople 2016


"Mathieson in particular brings a deeply compelling current of emotional vulnerability to her portrayal, gently tugging on the heartstrings without overindulging in this pathos."

- Maxim Boon, Limelight Magazine 2016
