About Me

Sara Thigpen is an award-winning Actor and Director based in New York City.  Originally from NC, my current home is in Long Island City (Queens, Y'all!), where I'm shacked up with my beloved husband, Tim, and our ever-growing collection of shot glasses and cookware. 

This year she has collaborated on a dozen developmental readings/workshops for new plays including work by Scott Sickles; Lauren Ferebee, Nico Grelli, Dennis A. Allen, Mrinalini Kamath, Gina Femia and Alyson Mead for such companies as The Lark, New Georges, Boomerang Theatre, TOSOS, NYMadness, and The Parsnip Ship. 

She received her BFA in Acting/Directing from UNC-Greensboro and continues her training at ESPA-Primary Stages.
