Allison proudly hails from a military family and grew up all around the world. She spent most of her teenage years in Bethesda, MD. Allison attained a B.F.A from Elon University in Music Theatre and is still a huge advocate of the school. After undergrad, she went on two National Tours and one International Tour. One National Tour was Cabaret where Allison played Sally Bowles. She there met her husband of 9 years, bass player, Michael Pearce. (www.michaelpearecmusic.com)
Moving to New York was the next step. During her 10 years in New York, Allison originated three Broadway shows, one Off-Broadway, countless regional shows, commercials, T.V. and film features. Her deep passion and fear of the classical works promoted her to apply to Graduate School. She was accepted into the prestigious Old Globe/USD M.F.A. Program. After two years of intense training in:
- Voice & Speech
- Stage Combat
- The Alexander Technique
- Writing & Performing a One Person Show
- Modern Plays
- Modern Literature
- Scene Study
Allison feels more like a well balanced performer and teacher. After graduating, Allison continues to work in her craft and teach at USD as an adjunct theatre professor. She is a proud team member of MTCA. This team helps coach, find material and aid high school students auditioning for theatre schools.
Michael and Allison's proudest accomplishment is their daughter, Ella. They all reside in San Diego, CA.
