Nicola is a Toronto-based CAEA actor and singer, whose interests predominantly centre around two things: acting and lasagne.
Nicola graduated with a degree in Music Theatre Performance from Sheridan College in 2016, and worked professionally within Canada’s theatre scene for several years before refocusing on film, television and voiceover work in 2020.
Alongside promoting the health and wellness benefits of lasagne intake to anyone that will listen, you may recognize Nicola’s voice singing the jingles in all PetSmart commercials or promoting espresso in Tim Horton’s radio adverts. She can also be seen dying several times in Forbidden: Dying for Love or See No Evil on DiscoveryID.
Previous theatre highlights have included Harper in Clinic (Tarragon Workspace/Collective of 7), a two-hander where Nicola had the challenge of speaking for nearly ninety minutes straight, multiple pantomimes with Stirling Festival Theatre as an audience favourite, and Into The Woods (Thousand Islands Playhouse), conquering Sondheim as Lucinda. Feel free to browse the ‘Resumé’ page for more highlights.
A musician as well, Nicola studied piano for fifteen years and completed her Grade 8 Royal Conservatory exam with First Class Honours.
This year, Nicola has had the pleasure to work extensively on an as yet unannounced Motion Capture project, and is currently filming a lead role in an upcoming miniseries with a major network, soon to be announced!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
THE KINCARDINE RECORD
"[The cast is] stellar, as they race across the stage at break-neck speed, and quickly switch from one role to another...Nicola [is] fabulous, portraying everything from villains to a Fox news reporter, a struggling actress, even a cow"
THE KINGSTON WHIG STANDARD
"There were a few performers who stood out for me. I really enjoyed the synchronized comedic hijinks of Nicola Hadjis and Madison Hayes-Crook as Cinderella’s stepsisters, Lucinda and Florinda."
"Stand-outs include...an absolutely hysterical turn by Nicola Hadjis and Madison Hayes-Crook as Cinderella’s (Katie Ryerson-who can really sing) step sisters Lucinda and Florinda. What a hoot."
