About Marisa Acosta


Marisa Acosta lives in San Diego California with her family. She will be entering the 9th grade at Canyon Crest Academy in the fall. Her passion for theatre and acting began at an early age when she was in her first school play. She began her career in community youth theatre at age 10 when she played Marcie in San Diego Junior Theatre's production of A Charlie Brown Christmas. Some of her favorite performances include: 13, The Musical (Lucy), Seussical (Mayzie), and Big River (Joanna Wilkes). She was only 12 years old when she played Madame Thenardier in Les Miserables opposite a cast of mostly high school and college age performers.

This summer she was admitted to intensive training with the Lamb's Players Theatre, a professional theatrical group in Coronado, CA. She has also been cast in an independent film that is set for production in July 2010. She looks to expand her experience in acting and media with "My Life in Musical Theatre" documentary style reality show that follows her experiences during the making of the show "13". Marisa co-created the show with the help of Vanessa Rodriguez-Spencer. Ms. Rodriguez-Spencer is a well known Hollywood producer and casting director best known for her work in the phenomenally successful HBO series, Entourage.

Marisa plans to continue pursuing her passion for performing in the coming years and looks forward to attending UCLA film school or Yale Drama and one day having a successful career in media and the performing arts.
