Susannah Upchurch was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, where she began dancing at the age of two. Studying with Charlotte Ballet, formerly known as North Carolina Dance Theatre, simultaneously she began to broaden her artistic goals to include musical theater. Ever since, she has been a featured performer in the Charlotte theatre community. Graduating from Charlotte Country Day School in 2017, she attended the Boston Conservatory at Berklee (2021), receiving a BFA in Musical Theater with an emphasis in dance.
While at the Conservatory, Susannah most recently was seen in Michelle Chasse's production of 'A Chorus Line' as Kristine Urich.
Before Covid-19, Susannah was traveling to Pittsburgh to be a part of Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera's 'A Chorus Line' directed and choreographed by Baayork Lee. While the show was delayed, she hopes to return to the stage in their summer production in 2021.
