i'm maya!

a twin cities native, new york city based

musical theatre girl*

who believes in the radical power of joy, as well as exploring deep truths like heartache, grief, and aching love -

all of those messy, human things we share, yet tend to shy away from.

Maya believes the job of an artist is to learn to play in the mess.

Maya was just seen on stage as Alyssa Greene in The Prom at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres, as well as Ariel Moore in Footloose. You can also catch her on Paramount+ as Zuma in Paw Patrol Live! At Home, or teaching improv classes to her friends at Ripley Grier!

"Maya Richardson, as Ariel, had me on board the minute she showed up. Her performance renders the necessary blend of rebel, dreamer and wounded child that is Ariel. She brings terrific vocals and hot dancing to the stage as well." 

-Talkin' Broadway, 2022

"She seemingly flew out of the ether to land the female lead of Ariel in "Footloose" at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre. A triple threat performer with fluid dancing, strong singing and honest acting."
