Monique is a shape shifter, poet, playwright, screenwriter, big kid, and a master of make believe. Robinson was born and raised in sunny Fort. Lauderdale, Florida, where her passion for drama began. While in Elementary school, Robinson discovered that she could make her peers laugh while bursting into song or making random jokes in the middle of class. From that moment on she was committed to captivating attention and making others laugh. Monique graduated with High honors, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government and Theatre from Smith College. While contemplating further graduate work in politics she decided to fully pursue a more solid, selfless, and stable career…and went in to acting. To further sharpen her skills, Robinson attended the University of Washington’s Professional Actors Training Program, where she received her MFA in Acting. Sans graduation, Robinson has performed in Regional Theatre’s across the country: The Oregon Shakespeare festival, The Folger Theatre (DC), and The Signature Theatre (NY).
