Kelly McCann began her theatre education in Junior High School and performed in several Drama competitions throughout Southern California.  Her role as Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet helped bring home the blue ribbon for her school while scoring a 5th place ribbon in a student written script about the effects of bullying entitled Things Change.

After discovering her love of theatre, Kelly was cast in acting and performed tech for The Miracle Worker and Clarissa’s Closet at the Canyon Theatre Guild in Santa Clarita.   While not performing, and as a way of staying connected to the Canyon Theatre Guild, Kelly successfully completed the task of reorganizing and inventorying the entire prop closet.  By the time Kelly reached High School she was cast in a Musical Theatre competition themed “Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder” which included music from Wicked, Side Show and Rocky Horror Picture Show under the direction of Stephen Whelan, Nancy Alterman and Arthur Miller.

In the summer of 2015 Ms. McCann attended a Summer College program at California Institute of the Arts.  Upon graduation Kelly was awarded the California Arts Scholar Award.

Holly Haworth

Sometimes Life sucks...

Maddie Paige has lived in California her whole life with her mom, dad, and older brother.  Maddie's love of musical theater came about when she saw Wicked at the age of three.  The protagonist in Wicked; Elphaba, instantly became Maddie's dream role.


In addition to figure skating, Maddie loves being a part of her high school theatre program. Maddie's been singing and acting since the age of seven and has performed in numerous community theatre productions.  Maddie's ultimate goal is to perform on Broadway as well as a successful film & television actor.  


Ms. Paige is very thankful for the opportunity to be a part of Dragula and the L.A. Theatre Festival.
