Laura Meyer has been teaching young people theatre for over 15 years. Theatre is Laura’s passion and helping young people realize their unique creative talent and potential gives her immense joy.
Originally hailing from Virginia, Laura moved to the Grand Strand in 2014 where she taught theatre for 8 years at St. James High School in Murrells Inlet.
Laura was the first ever (in the 20 year history of St. James High School Drama Dept) that led her casts to 3 consecutive "Superior" wins (the highest award possible) at the yearly Palmetto Dramatic Association State High School Theatre Festival. She also won numerous other individual acting and technical awards.
Laura graduated with a degree in Drama from the University of Virginia where she acted in, directed, and designed numerous shows.
She has worked at several professional theatres, including Williamstown Theatre Festival, North Shore Music Theatre, Summer Theatre at Mount Holyoke College, Mill Mountain Theatre, and the Academy of Fine Arts, working alongside several Broadway and film actors, directors, and designers, including James Noone, Joanne Woodward, Richard Kind, Tate Donovan, Eric Stoltz, and Jenny Bacon.
One of the highlights of her career was working on Children of Eden, a musical by Stephen Schwartz (composer and lyricist of Wicked, Pippin, and Godspell), in which she was able to meet with Mr. Schwartz and to work alongside Tony Award-winning costume designer, Gregg Barnes.
Just a few of her many directing and design credits include The Diviners, Dancing at Lughnasa, Trifles, Alice in Wonderland, The Emperor’s New Clothes, and Trojan Women.
She has also worked with a diverse array of students in writing and producing several original works, both plays and performance art pieces, helping students realize they can make a difference in this world through the beauty and magic of theatre.
When she is not doing theatre, Laura enjoys spending time with family and friends, interior designing, creating original home décor, painting, antiquing, reading, writing, traveling and being outdoors.
