General Info


Professor of Theater


Musical Theater

As an instructor, my mission is not only to help students join the next generation of great musical theater artists. I want them to know that there are so many ways they can use their gifts to leave the world a little better than how they found it.

Bill Casey joined the Conservatory in 1999 and is professor of theater specializing in musical theater. 

Before coming to Boston, Casey was a recording artist for Hal Leonard Publications, recording several collections of music for voice and piano as well as a series with the Grammy-winning ensemble Canadian Brass. Casey served on the editorial staff of G. Schirmer’s Operatic Aria anthologies. At Boston Conservatory, Casey has been the music director for numerous Mainstage Productions, as well as the annual Freshman Revue. Notably, Casey was music director of the world premiere of The Captain’s Daughter (Boston Conservatory, 2002), and he went on to music direct the Russian premiere in Saint Petersburg in 2003. Casey is also a popular Boston cabaret performer and works extensively with the internationally renowned Boston Gay Men’s Chorus.

Casey earned his B.M. and M.M. in piano performance from the Louisiana State University and did post-graduate work at the University of Missouri–Kansas City's Conservatory of Music.

Casey currently resides in Boston and Provincetown, Massachusetts, with his husband, Reuben Reynolds. They are both passionate about the arts and social justice issues.
