Maya Pierce

Actor & Singer

Hi! I am Maya

Hello! My name is Maya Pierce and I am an actor and singer currently living in the Chicagoland area.

A recent college graduate of Northwestern University, I have spent the last four years pursuing a Theatre major, Computer Science minor, and Music Theatre Certificate. In my time at Northwestern I discovered a love of new work, a passion for dancing, and an overwhelming appreciation for Lake Michigan. In the midwest I have also been fortunate enough to work with Chicago Children’s Theatre at an Apprentice and a teaching artist over the past year.

My love of theatre comes from a love of people, and a fascination with why we do what we do. I am thrilled that you have taken a few minutes out of your day to look at my website, whoever you are please contact me! I would love to talk to you.

What’s New With Me?

I am thrilled to join the cast of A Grand Night for Singing at Dunes Summer Theatre in Michigan City, Indiana. Performances will be July 15th – 31st, Friday-Sunday. More information at https://www.dunesarts.org/

 

Catch me in Holland, Michigan this summer! I am thrilled to join the company of Exit Left Theatre Company’s Hair in the role of Jeanie. Performances run June 16th – 26th.  Click here to get your ticket!

I had so much fun performing at The Duplex in New York City on May 5th and 6th in “Back to Precedented Times: Our NYC Debut” with many of my classmates from Northwestern! My performance of Lost in the Wilderness, from Children of Eden, can be found on my media page, or click here!

 

Scenes from “Hummingbird”, a short film directed by Joseph Coleman and starring Oscar-nominated actress Janet McTeer and myself, are now available on my Media page!

The film was a runner up for Best Film of the Month at the Independent Shorts Awards Film Festival. It was an honor and an incredible learning experience working alongside such a masterful actress, take a look!
