Adrienne Walters is an actress from Palo Alto, California, specializing in musical and straight theatre, guitar and gymnastics.

Born and raised in the Bay Area, Adrienne found her love for the stage at 5 years-old when she took her first "mommy and me" dance class and continued to find her footing in theatre throughout elementary school and middle school including the world premiere of The Music Man Jr.

In high school Adrienne found herself cheerleading for the Palo Alto Senior High School (PALY) Vikings. She was competing with the varsity squad her freshman year, and then became one of five girls chosen to compete in PALY's first stunt competition team her sophomore year. Despite her love for the sport and devotion to her team, she returned to the stage as an upperclassmen. Adrienne's junior year, she met Richard Nickol, who she would later know as not only her vocal coach, but also her mentor, and friend.

Upon graduating from Palo Alto Senior High School, Adrienne began studying at San Francisco State University in order to continue working with Richard Nickol, and would eventually focus her collegiate studies in Kinesiology (the study of human movement).

Adrienne has been working throughout the bay area in many acclaimed productions. In the spring of 2012, she was seen as Ilse in Spring Awakening at Center Repertory Company. Duncan Sheik attended and noted that they had tight harmonies and true-to-the-score musical performance just as he had seen with his New York production, and that Adrienne had fully captured Ilse. She also appeared in August: Osage County, which was one of the top 3 most anticipated shows in the Bay Area of 2011. Adrienne was also in the world premiere of both Our Practical Heaven at Aurora Theatre Co in Berkeley and Spacebar: A Broadway Play by Kyle Sugarman at City Lights Theatre Co in San Jose.
