“I think being boring is just the worst sin of all time.”

~ Elaine Stritch


Hello there! My name is Laura Ann Peterson. I'm your friendly neighborhood character actor, proudly born and raised in North Carolina. I discovered my passion for storytelling in fourth grade when I made my unforgettable theatrical debut as Citizen #3 in King Midas and the Golden Palace: The Musical. I was hooked! Since fourth grade, I attended Weaver Academy for the Performing Arts in Greensboro, NC. I’m also a proud alumnus of North Carolina Governor's School’s theatre program. When I finally reached the "Big Apple", I studied at Marymount Manhattan College where I earned BA in Theatre Performance as well as minors in Musical Theatre and Arts Administration. With my degree now in hand, I'm ready to take on life's next big challenges... auditioning, working, NYC’s tour guide test and laundry!
