She was nominated for Best Performance by a Female Artist in the Bangkok Theatre Festival 2015 for her work in the title role of "The True History of the Tragic Life and Triumphant Death of Julia Pastrana, the Ugliest Woman in the World", with the Bangkok Post raving "the sweet-voiced Siree Riewpaiboon, as Julia Pastrana, offers a glimpse of redemption and beauty".

Last year, Siree performed in "0110" by Pataranun Isarankura Na Ayudhya for Her Majesty, Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand.

In her previous collaborations with Peel the Limelight, she appeared as Kayleen in Rajiv Joseph's "Gruesome Playground Injuries" and more recently, as Lil' Bit in Paula Vogel's "How I Learned to Drive".
