(Congregation B'Nai Tzedek Theater, 2020)
"In the title role, Laura Searles is terrific — proud yet innocent, crowing his own praise and yet still a little boy. Searles’ voice is a treat, especially in the surprisingly operatic, funny and energetic “Oh, Mysterious Lady” duet with Hook."
Musical Comedy Murders of 1940
(Rockville Little Theater, 2019)
"But the real standout[s]...[is] Laura Searles as a flighty lyricist who is far too fond of the bottle. It is hard these days to pull off a comic drunk who is convincing rather than cringe-worthy, and Searles, with all her different levels, physical and vocal, is peerless. One of the funniest sequences is when she is struck with inspiration and blithely waves away all murder and mayhem in order to re-write the second-act opener."

State Road Singer and Young Francesca (dance)
(Damascus Theatre Company, 2018)
2018 WATCH Award: Outstanding Cameo In A Musical (nomination)
"Searles did a great job in a few roles, including an impressive performance of “State Road 21/ The Real World” where she both sang and played violin. She also utilized her dancing skills in the highly effective flashback sequence as the younger version of Francesca."
Meet Me In St. Louis
(Damascus Theatre Company, 2012)
"Sisters Rose (Laura Searles) and Esther (Ellie Borzilleri) Smith were a good match. Both girls had believable expressions and emotions that were easy to read. Esther’s beau John Truitt (Gabriel Potter) and Rose’s beau Warren Sheffield (Matt Kopp) were fun to watch as John tried to woo Esther without getting beaten up by her somewhat fiery temper and Kopp tried to be a little less polite and more take charge around the energetic Rose. Neither Borzerilleri nor Searles held back their feelings when it came to their men."
