A lifelong performer, our theatre arts teacher Maggie began dancing at age 5. Growing up, she performed in productions with Mizzoula Children’s Theatre, KidsActing, and Alisa’s Dance Academy. She majored in dance at the McCallum High School Fine Arts Academy, where she also participated in band, choir, and school musicals. After high school, Maggie attended the University of Texas at Austin where she studied Theatre & Dance with a concentration in Musical Theatre. She is a proud alumna of the university’s show choir, Longhorn Singers, for which she was also a choreographer.
Aside from performing arts, Maggie also has a passion for working with children. She worked for four years as a preschool administrator at the JCAA Early Childhood Program where she also taught ballet and hip hop for children ages 2-6 year old. Currently, Maggie is a Human Resources professional for a local IT Managed Service Provider. She is excited for the opportunity to continue her involvement with children and performing while contributing to the theatre arts program at Joshua’s Stage.
Chelsea is our classroom aide who has worked with special needs children since high school. Chelsea is studying to become a special education or kindergarten teacher.
