The Summer of Theatre

Madison is about to start her Senior year in high school.  She’s long wanted to pursue a life in the theatre and this summer she took a big step towards learning what that is like.

She auditioned for summer intensive programs and was accepted at both the University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and Columbia University in New York.

At UCCM she acted, danced, and sang every day in a physically demanding 2 week program.  From there, Carie picked her up and they turned and burned to New York for the start of a 3 week program in writing & directing at Columbia University.

In short, she loved both experiences and has made new friends that share her passion and have the same goals.

Here are a few shots of Madison’s experience and links to both albums over at Flickr.
