Oop, I’m just gonna sneak by ya and grab the ranch…
Allie Long was born into a big ol' Midwestern family in the outskirts of Detroit. She moved to Chicago to earn her BFA from The Chicago College of Performing Arts Theatre Conservatory at Roosevelt University, and went on to graduate from the prestigious School at Steppenwolf.
When Allie was five years old, her big sister took her to the bus stop and overheard a neighbor boy say “Allie, you’re weird!” to which Allie replied, “THANK YOU!” Allie has been a proud weirdo ever since.
Allie has appeared on ABC’s Betrayal, NBC's Chicago Fire, The Resurrection of Gavin Stone (WWE Films), the award winning film The Life and Death of an Unhappily Married Man, various commercials, and has worked in Chicago with Goodman Theatre, Steppenwolf, Northlight Theatre, Victory Gardens, American Theatre Company, Chicago Children’s Theatre, Broadway in Chicago, The Artistic Home, Griffin Theatre, and Chicago Dramatists among others. Allie's love for travel has sent her all over the world to perform, including Off-Broadway and with The San Francisco Mime Troupe, BoarsHead Theatre in Michigan, Durango Melodrama and Vaudeville in Southwestern Colorado, as well as a tour in Greece as a guest artist in UDM’s production of The Bacchae. After enduring years of the seemingly never-ending Chicago winters, Allie’s latest travel adventure was a cross-country move with her husband and dog, Roo, to the bright sunshine of Los Angeles!
Not only is Allie an accomplished actor, she is a filmmaker, producer, and founder of Toolmaker Productions, telling the stories of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. Look out for Toolmaker’s inaugural documentary theater show, “A Price to Pay” which tells the true story of a Vietnam Combat Soldier who experienced the horrors and cruelty of war and returned home a forever-changed man.
