Early life[edit]

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Louderman lived in the Chicago and Decatur, Illinois, areas before her family moved to Bourbon, Missouri, a small town 60 miles southwest of St. Louis. She is the daughter of Roger and Suzanne Louderman and has four younger sisters, named Hannah, Olivia, Morgan and Madison. At the age of 10 she was cast in the title role of Annie at Ozark Actors Theatre, in Rolla, Missouri.[1][2][3] She grew up appearing in stage productions in the Saint Louis region; after her sophomore year at the University of Michigan, she appeared as Margot, one of the sorority sisters, in Legally Blonde at The Muny.[4] It was while appearing in that production that she learned she'd been cast as the lead role of Campbell in the touring production of Bring It On: The Musical.[5] Bring It On transferred to Broadway in 2012 with the same tour cast, including Louderman, making her Broadway debut.[6]

Social media presence[edit]

Louderman, along with costar Ashley Park, has a large presence on social media. She and Park keep their fans updated on their Instagram stories, featuring a variety of backstage antics such as an ongoing series deemed, "Broadway Scares." Louderman also has a recurring segment called "Louderman Lingo" on the Mean Girls YouTube series, "Too Grool For School."[original research?]
