Headshot of Laurie Ann looking to the side

Laurie Ann is appearing in her fourteenth ArtStream musical. Her characters have ranged from being a singing alleycat to a “we-are-bad” alien to a trusty sidekick, through which she brought her quiet joy to each production. Before the pandemic, weekends for Laurie Ann were frequently filled with Special Olympics practices and tournaments, in snowshoeing, basketball, soccer, softball, and golf skills. A highlight for her and her family was being included on the Virginia Special Olympics golf team in 2010 for the Special Olympics National Games in Lincoln, Nebraska, at which she won a silver medal in the golf skills competition. Laurie Ann attended school in Arlington, Virginia, and spends her workdays at MVLE in Springfield, Virginia.
