Cori Anne Weber
Cori Anne began performing when she was 6 years old, and she's been in love with theatre ever since! Though born in Kansas, Cori Anne grew up in a Seattle suburb and has vivid memories of venturing into the city to go to acting classes and perform in musicals. By high school, her family had returned to Kansas, where she spent most summers working both on and off stage at Music Theatre Wichita, and spent winters teaching kids to sing and dance at MTYP's Broadway Winter Camps. Cori Anne studied voice under former Kansas City native countertenor Arthur Marks, as well as Penelopie Speedie, Director of Opera Theatre and Voice at Emporia State University. Also at ESU, she obtained her BFA in theatre and studied acting under Jim Ryan, Theresa Mitchell, and Harry B. Parker.
Cori Anne had been working in a Chicago children's theater when she took her first-ever break from performance to focus on being a mom. In that time she moved back to Kansas and revisited her passions for writing and teaching. A published author, Cori Anne's work has been featured in various books, desk calendars, animated series, websites, national magazines, and more. She has worked as a para for middle schoolers with special needs in Olathe and is a substitute teacher in the Shawnee Mission School District. She also currently works in the KC area as a professional singer, actor, and voice over artist.
Cori Anne has always had great passion for both acting and teaching, so she's especially delighted any time she gets a chance to marry the two! She is currently teaching acting workshops through DM Studios and MTKC, and looks forward to adding more classes to her repertoire and finding more teaching opportunities in the future!
