About Maddie

Maddie is a Sydney born and raised theatre practitioner passionate in all areas of stage management. She chose the direction of the arts during her first management role in year 8 on her high school’s musical, it wasn’t for years after this in year 12 that she decided to look into how to make that a career. It is Maddie’s love for the challenge of live performance, her willingness learn, adapt and encourage change that drew her to theatre.

Maddie strives to use her voice in management positions to encourage and push for not only physically but also mentally health workplaces. Maddie also wishes to use the power of theatre and her multidisciplinary training to help share the stories of those often left untold whilst challenging and empowering people to do the same.
