Cie Peterson is a native New Yorker, who began her actor training as a teenager at the renowned Gene Frankel Theatre in the Broadway district. As an adult that training continued - first with noted acting coach Sande Shurin and then intensively with Sanford Meisner apprentice Larry Silverberg - while she worked as a freelance associate producer, director-for-hire, and acting teacher/coach. While she has an extensive resume of theatrical credits, her current acting work finds her primarily in the audio booth, where she regularly books TV and radio spots, online tutorials, training videos, documentaries, and the occasional audio book.
In addition to being an actor, Cie is an accomplished director, writer and acting teacher/coach. Her many directing credits include myriad theatrical and video projects; If I Had a Dime, an original cartoon series she conceived, wrote, and created through the pilot animatic phase; countless showcases for Play On Acting Studio, the Farmington studio she founded and led for several years; and the web series Beige on Both Sides, which she also co-wrote. Recently, she founded Clouds and a Waffle Productions, which is now her official production company. Cie is also an experienced acting teacher with a reputation of excellence who works for such esteemed institutions as The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts and Hartford Stage, as well as a much in-demand private acting coach sought out by both aspiring performers and working professionals from both coasts.
