Ashley Park was born in Glendale, California, on June 6, 1991, to Sara and Andrew. She comes from Korea and has a little sister named Audrey. Park grew up in the Michigan city of Ann Arbor.

Park also went to Interlochen Summer Arts Camp and helped start a women’s a cappella group at her high school that won second place at a national competition in 2009.
At age 15, Park was told she had a type of leukemia and had to stay in the hospital for eight months. She got her wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which meant that she and her family could go to New York and see several Broadway shows. After going through chemotherapy, Park went back to high school and was cast as “Thoroughly Modern Millie” in a school play. She went to the University of Michigan for higher education and got her BFA in musical theater there in 2013.
In 2009, Park played Yvonne in “Miss Saigon” at Music Theatre Wichita. This was her first major role in a regional theater show.

In 2016, Park was in “The Remarkable Journey of Prince Jen” at the Manhattan Theatre Club and “The Fantasticks” at the Pasadena Playhouse. The next year, she was in a Broadway revival of “Sunday in the Park with George” and an off-Broadway musical called “KPOP.” She was nominated for the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical for the second one. In 2018, Park played Gretchen Wieners in the original Broadway musical “Mean Girls,” which was based on the 2004 movie of the same name. This was Park’s biggest role to date. She was nominated for both the Tony Award and the Drama Desk Award for her performance. After “Mean Girls,” Park was in “Lady in the Dark” and “Grand Horizons” in 2019.
