Get to know me!
Hello! My name is Sarah Kay Peters. I am an LA based storyteller with decades of experience acting and puppeteering on stage and screen. I earned a BA in Theatre Acting & Directing from Colorado Mesa University, trained as a classical actress with the British American Drama Academy and earned an MA in Applied Theatre Arts from University of Southern California.
I have performed on many stages, including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival Green Show, The National Puppetry Festival, Pasadena Playhouse and the Gary Marshall Theatre as well as many unique spaces doing immersive theatre with my theatre company, Rogue Artists Ensemble. Between acting gigs, I have made a living teaching everything from parent and child music classes to elementary, middle and high school playwriting and theatre to yoga and capoeira classes.
A natural leader, my inner strength and authority shine through when telling stories with strong female leads, especially in scifi, fantasy and mystery. With over a decade of social justice arts work and teaching theatre to marginalized youth, I bring compassionate, clear and conversational connection to nonfiction. My playful nature and years of puppeteering many characters (human, animal and alien) make my playful character voices a natural fit for children's books. When not on stage or narrating, I can be found practicing yoga (I'm a 200 hour certified teacher), hiking, playing capoeira, gardening in my balcony garden and playing with my kitties, Luci Fur and Maze.
