Malissa Petterson began her theatrical career in Frederick, Maryland, working with such companies as the Frederick Towne Players, the Cultural Arts Center, the Maryland Ensemble Theatre, and the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company. Since her move in 2011 to beautiful Madison, Malissa has worked with the Children's Theater of Madison, the Mercury Players Theatre, StageQ, and the Broom Street Theater, where she is currently a board member. She has a BA in communications with a focus in digital media and a minor in theatre, as well as an MFA in creative writing. During the day, she can be found at the Encore Studio for the Performing Arts, sweating to the eighties and living the dream. A playwright, director, stage manager, costumer, teacher, and sometimes actor, she has yet to decide which Theatrical Hat fits the best. In January, The 800th Annual Salvation Swing-Off, one of Malissa's original works, will be featured at the Broom Street Theater as part of their 2016 season; this is her third produced original in Madison.

We met at Starbucks. Not at the same Starbucks but we saw each other at different Starbucks across the street from each other. We begin our block of episodes at Broom Street Theater in front of a super lively audience to talk about Christopher Guest's hilarious mockumentary "Best In Show!" Well, you certainly must be very PROUD, Mary!
