Lorraine (pronouns she/her/hers) is a Massachusetts girl, born and raised. Living just thirty minutes north of Boston in Burlington, MA, her passion for all things artistic was programmed early on in her life, thanks to her deep connection to her Ugandan heritage. As a first-generation Ugandan-American, Lorraine fell in love with theatre; while still in grade school, she began performing in community and school productions.
Since then, she has made a name for herself at the University of Massachusetts Boston, where she has grown creatively, socially, and academically in the last four years studying Theatre Arts and African Studies. Lorraine was recently recognized as the 2020 John J. Conlon Prize honoree; this prize, awarded by the UMass Boston Theatre Department, recognizes a graduating senior who exemplifies a spirit of dedication to theatre arts, fellow students, and the community. In addition to acting, Lorraine is an avid writer and singer, and some of her work can be located on her Instagram @sunbeam.queen, and her Vimeo account.
When she's not onstage, Lorraine can be found singing, reading, and spending time beating her friends and family at Uno (seriously, she never loses!)
Lorraine will be graduating from the University of Massachusetts Boston in May 2020 with a Bachelor of the Arts Degree in Theatre Arts and a minor in African Studies.
