THE PEABODY PLAYERS
Heather Gerard-Peabody created The Peabody Players after moving to the North Metro and realized that live entertainment was lacking in the area. Heather got her first laugh at the ripe age of 6 months old, and the rest is history. She brings with her more than twenty years of performance experience across the Midwest and New York. Heather’s background includes comedy, musical theater, television commercials, and film.
Peabody is a professional stand-up and improv comedian, performed the role of Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray at the Chanhassen Dinner Theaters, and was even cast in an episode of "Law and Order." She attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City and holds a BS degree (insert joke here) in Journalism and Theater from UW-River Falls.
Comedians that perform with The Peabody Players include: Grant Dawson, Joe Lovitt, Carl Olson, Chad Dutton, Kristen Kuehn, and Charles Horn.
