Actress & Playwright
Chicago (and occasionally Dallas-Fort Worth)
Hey there! My name is Grace, my pronouns are she/her/hers, and I'm happy you're here!
I am a proud queer woman and an autistic self-advocate who is always happy to help educate others about accessibility and disability activism. I hope to spread awareness and acceptance through my favorite forms of self-expression... performing and writing!
I have been active in the arts since age nine. I first started out with improv, and later moved on to community theatre. Some of my favorite musical theatre roles I've played are the title role in Carrie and Jo March in Little Women. I graduated high school at Ovation Academy of Performing Arts in McKinney, TX, and now, I am a freshman at DePaul University in Chicago, where I study and train as a member of one of the country's most selective undergraduate playwriting programs.
I was a writer from the time I could read, but I started writing plays at age 15. My first play, The Last Sunrise of August 1973, is award-winning, and several of my other plays have been performed across America by various youth theatres and professional companies.
I'm so glad you decided to check out my website. I can't wait to get to know each other better!
"Grace Everett, a graduating senior, was a sensational Jo. Hers was a power house performance. As the central character, Ms. Everett displayed a range that was nothing short of remarkable, moving seamlessly from comedy to anger to pathos. She also has a dynamite singing voice, especially in the act one closer 'Astonishing'. This is a kid to watch out for as she is already an award winning playwright."

Review of 'Little Women' at Ovation Academy, 2021
"Gracie is beautiful inside and out! She brings an amazing amount of professionalism to every role she’s had and does a great job creating a character and truly bringing it to life. She is a joy to watch!"
"Gracie is a phenomenal actress. She’s professional, works well in groups, memorizes roles with ease, and sings beautifully. My favorite thing about Gracie is is her commitment to teach the trade to others in her community. She is quick to volunteer her time and talents."
"Grace is the consummate professional! She is an 'up and comer'.. remember her name!"
"Grace has a beautiful voice. She is a great actress. I have seen her in many roles and am always impressed by her talent at such a young age."
