Mariesa is an actor, choreographer, and costume designer who is thrilled to join the Little Stars family!

After spending her early childhood as a ballet dancer, she fell in love with musicals and began performing at several youth theatre’s around Washington. She then attended Marymount Manhattan College and received her BFA in Musical Theatre Performance. Her performing credits include working with Reboot Theatre Company, SecondStory Repertory, Bainbridge Performing Arts, and Sound Theatre Company.
