Meet our producer, Little Red and Jack understudy, and club president, Madeline Aquino!
Maddie is one of the co-founders of the Muscial Theatre Club and a biology major with a focus on biomedical sciences.
About Into the Woods, Maddie says: "It has been an incredible experience to work alongside my peers to put on such a big production - it is amazing to think that in just two years this club has grown to this size. Because we don't have a program, we're learning through one another and figuring things out together, and to be so close to opening night...it's truly spectacular."
