Actor, Director, Instructor, Writer, Ally, Human.
Artist working to inspire ensemble everywhere.
Hi. Thank you for visiting my page. I’m Laura Dickinson-Turner, or LDT for short. Many things in this world inspire and drive me, but my primary outlets for expression are theatre, literature/language, and teaching. I’ve also been known to sit down with a guitar and accompany myself to some Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell; I cook a mean improvised dinner; cats and babies flock to me; I also get crafty from time to time with paper and glue, or knitting needles and yarn.
I just finished my second year as an Acting Option student in the in the Television, Film, and Theatre MFA program (Master of Fine Arts) at Cal State LA — and I officially advanced to candidacy, which is a good thing in academia-land! The program is intense, immersive, and provides me with fertile grounds for self-exploration and expression, for which I am extremely grateful. I want to spend my life creating, learning, teaching, and growing, and this MFA program is giving me tools and building connections to help me continue to do just that.

I just may be the human you’re looking for!
Living a creative life has empowered me to wear many hats — and to wear them well. Take a look around, leave a comment, drop me a line. I’m so glad you’re here.
