When not on stage, Daya feeds her roller coaster addiction and brags about her Guinness World Record (“Most Roller Coasters Ridden in a 24-Hour Period”), an event that was documented on The Discovery Channel as 30 Roller Coasters in 24 Hours, and she was a terrified version of herself in Extreme Rides on The Learning Channel. She also co-wrote the book/music/lyrics for the musical comedy Becoming Britney, which premiered at FringeNYC and then won a Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle award for original script.
Daya Curley most recently worked on developing a new musical called Stu for Silverton for which she played the title role. Some of her other favorite roles were in the shows Bat Boy, The Goodbye Girl, and john & jen. Theatre companies she has worked with include TheatreWorks SV, 42nd Street Moon, and San Jose Rep among others. Her appearance in Miss Liberty resulted in a Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle award, and her frequent work on development workshops and readings led to appearances in world premieres of Memphis and The Haunting of Winchester.
