Cavanagh was one of the original members of professional theater troupe New Age Vaudeville. The group was an Actor's Equity Theater troupe and put on plays in Chicago and in Fish Creek, Wis.

"A League of Their Own" was Cavanagh's first major motion picture, and her character, the homely, shy, but incredibly talented second-base player was one of the most memorable roles in the film, owing to Cavanagh's impeccable command of physical comedy.
