Hi, I’m 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 Legally Blonde at Metropolis Performing Arts Center as ensemble and Vivienne u/s. It has been such a joy to return to live theatre, especially with a show as joyful and high-energy as this one. Shows run Thursday-Sunday until November 20th, come check it out!

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 has also been accepted into the Independent Shorts Awards Film Festival. It was an honor and an incredible learning experience working alongside such a masterful actress, take a look!
