WHO I AM
Hey ya'll! My name is Heather Sawyer. I am a NYC based artist, who sings, dances, and acts. I grew up in Dallas, Texas, and moved to New York to pursue a BFA in the Molloy College CAP21 Theatre Arts Program, focusing on musical theatre. Thar's the short and sweet version of my story. Feel free to click for more facts and tid-bits about me.
WHY I DO
Simply put I am passionate about telling stories that reflect, inspire, and celebrate the world around us. As an Asian-American artist, I am always seeking ways to increase representation for my community. Our audiences deserve to see every race, gender, orientation, body type, and beyond on stage and most importantly get the chance to see themselves as a leading character.
WHAT I DO
I have experience in a wide variety of straight plays as well as musicals, ranging from Shakespeare and Chekhov to Tennessee Williams and contemporary playwrights. As for musicals, I have studied anything from Golden Age to Contemporary. I have also trained in stage combat, film, and dabbling in pretty much everything else.
