"Conner is also a strong physical comedienne, and she surprisingly finds new laughs"  -Sharon Perlmutter,TalkingBroadway.com

Cissy wouldn’t get off the stage when she was three years old in the Little Miss Arkansas talent contest.  And nothing’s changed, except her costumes.

In the deep South, she received accolades and awards for her work in  the plays of Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote. She garnered a plethora of laurels for outstanding oratory and debate competitions. After winning the title of Miss Jackson, Alabama, she was in great demand for extensive work in music and theatre.

A multi-faceted performer, Cissy is well known for her stage work, particularly in the arena of one-woman shows. She received stellar reviews for her portrayal of Serena McCall in Look at Me, a one-woman play by southern playwright Benjamin Bradford.  In fact, one-woman plays and shows have become her forte.   As Katharine Hepburn in the one-woman show, Kate, she displayed unique talents as an impressionist and comedienne, while also exacting attention and accolades as a serious actor. 

In 2003, Cissy received an LA Ovations Award nomination as Lead Actress portraying Marlene Dietrich in An Evening with Marlene.  In 2005, Cissy received an ADA award nomination for the world premiere of her one-woman play Plane Crazy.
The consummate professional performer, Cissy’s warm and bluesy song styling runs the gamut from country to jazz. She continues non-stop with her celebrated cabaret act, stand-up comedy and legitimate theatre.  As one critic wrote, “Cissy Conner has enough talent and energy to supply a dozen road shows of Shirley Valentine”.

Cissy has the three most terrific kids in the world.  She resides both in Los Angeles and Chicago.
