I'm cas!

thanks for stopping by


I was raised in Logansport, IN where my first introduction to the performing arts was a community production of The Wizard of Oz at 9 years old and WWE's Friday Night Smackdown. I would keep these two passions extremely close to me as I am currently a senior at Indiana University pursing a BFA in Musical Theatre with an emphasis in stage combat and motion capture technology. 


As a movement based actor and performer, many of my hobbies and skills tend to be connected to that idea. I love rock climbing (lead climbing certified), aerial silks, and yoga & pilates (soon to be certified in both). 

Outside of those, I LOVE video games, playing my array of instruments, cooking, hiking, and learning new random skills (next being archery) and chillin' with my cat Greg who I will show you now.

Not straying too far from my Midwest roots, you'll find me in Chicago this summer and beyond!

About Me 

What's Up?




The Indiana University senior class recently performed Head Over Heels which premiered on Broadway HD! I had the privilege of playing Pamela and being the fight choreographer.

Currently, I am co-music directing a COVID conscious production of Into the Woods. Directed by fellow senior Kyle Mason, this project has continued to prove what we are capable of in such difficult times.

Some fellow seniors and I collaborated to create "Unmuted Living Room Concerts". This bi-weekly YouTube series features performers of the Indiana University Class of 2021. Destroying my living room was well worth this grand venture. I am also the sound engineer on this project! 


“IU’s production belongs to Ruth, from top to bottom. Scagnoli, who impressed me in ‘Pippin’ last year, is even better here. Her ‘One Hundred Easy Ways’ might have been the show-stealer if all, and I mean all, the other numbers weren’t so good. Scagnoli is one of those IU students who can do it all— sing, dance, act and evoke hurricanes of laughter. You leave the theatre wanting to have lunch with her next week.
