Madeleine McKee, 14, has a promising future.
The singer and actor already has a number of productions under her belt, performed at a number of venues including the Airdrie Film Festival and through Torchlight Theatre.
“My mother and father are very musical and artistic, so I grew up in that environment,” says McKee, who attends W.H. Croxford High School. “I just love the experience of becoming a different person onstage.”
McKee loves the stage so much that she is already planning to pursue drama at a post-secondary institute.
Her ultimate goal would be to appear on Broadway or in a large, innovative production.
McKee’s passion for the stage doesn’t prevent her from volunteering behind the scenes, according to Torchlight Theatre’s Chelsea Restall.
“[McKee] has such a hunger and passion for the arts,” says Restall. “Maddie is eager to learn anything to do with the art of theatre and is quick to offer herself as a volunteer. This is sometimes rare when working with artists, they sometimes don’t see the “glamour” they want from performing so they never volunteer for back stage.”
