After admiring their work (and their dance parties) from afar, Ashleigh is proud and humbled to be a company member with Steep Theatre.
Ashleigh was born and raised in the windy city; the youngest girl of oodles of children. After training at both the University of Illinois and the School at Steppenwolf, she began to act professionally across the country.
Ashleigh credits her love of acting with an overactive imagination and a mischevious nature as a child. Being an actor lets her keep both. She gets paid to play!
Apart from acting, Ms. LaThrop enjoys dancing, sign language, volunteering, and she firmly believes that Peter Pan is one of the greatest characters ever written. Ashleigh recently moved to Los Angeles, trading in her down jacket for flip flops.
