Cass Morris is a Virginia native who completed her Master of Letters at Mary Baldwin College, where she wrote her thesis on Shakespeare’s evolution of the traditional narrative of male friendship. She earned her undergraduate degree, a BA in English with a minor in history, from the College of William and Mary in 2007, where she was accepted into the Alpha Delta Gamma honor society for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Cass served on the boards of student theatrical production companies at both Mary Baldwin and William and Mary. At the ASC, Cass creates educational resources and publications such as the ASC Study Guides, leads workshops and seminars demonstrating performance-based learning techniques, and edits The Playhouse Insider, the ASC's in-house magazine. She has been published in Renaissance Magazine, her essay "Technical and Material Matters" appears in Shakespeare Expressed, and her paper "'Why do you thus exclaim?': Emotionally-Inflected Punctuation in Editorial Practice and in Performance" appears in Shaping Shakespeare for Performance: The Bear Stage. She has presented at the 2011 and 2013 Blackfriars Conferences, at the 2014 CEA Conference, and at the 2012, 2014, and 2016 Shakespeare Association of America Conferences.
