Traysie Amick started her acting career in kindergarten as the star in the school Christmas play. Instead of Mary, she had a gluey, glittery cardboard star slung around her neck and a piece of tinsel slapped on top of her head. Since then, she has immersed herself in the theatre arts, trying to heal the wound to her ego.
She received her B.A. in Theatre at Winthrop University and studied directing with Omaha Magic Theatre. In 1999, Traysie hooked up with South Carolina Children's Theatre and by now (much to her enjoyment) it has consumed most of her life. She has also served as actor, director or "techie" in many theatres around the area; including The Cafe and Then Some, The Warehouse Theatre, Easley Foothills Playhouse and Citizens of the Universe. Traysie is a founding member of The Distracted Globe, stage director of SCCT's KNOW WAY: teen life theatre production of Trippin' Up and officially serves as the Education Coordinator for SCCT's Theatre Arts Conservatory.
Favorite roles and projects include: "Suddenly Hamlet" DG improv performance, Max from Not Even a Mouse, Dancin' Darlene and Little Norma from The Cafe and Then Some, Girl in The Tragedy, Chick in Crimes of the Heart, Pallas Athene in The Trojan Women, Edith in 'dentity Crisis, the Valet in No Exit and Slender in The Merry Wives of Windsor.
