This week, we meet Madelyn Flynn of Clarendon Hills. She joined the CTWS in 2009 when in second grade.

Q. Why did you join CTWS? 

A. I joined CTWS because I loved (and still love) anything that involved creativity. 

Q. What made you discover your interest in theater?

A. In first grade, I played an elephant in my school’s circus production and loved it! I knew I wanted to be on stage as often as possible after that.

Q. What is your favorite thing about theater?

A. My favorite thing about theater is that you can act like anyone you want to, no matter how different they are, but you can always still feel free to act like yourself. Acting makes you really think about how someone else sees a situation or the world.

Q. At CTWS do you work on stage, behind the scenes, or both? Name some roles/crews that were your favorite.

A. During my time at CTWS, I have painted sets, ushered, worked backstage with props, and, of course, performed on-stage when I acted in plays and musicals. While I enjoy acting the most, I had a great time painting sets because it was a fun and unique experience. It made me really appreciate all the behind-the-scenes work that goes into a production.

Q. What is your favorite thing about CTWS?

A. I love all the fun and enthusiastic people at CTWS. The teachers and directors make the classes and productions really fun!

Q. Do you see yourself continuing to act?

A. I believe I will always continue to act because I love it!

Q. What do you want to be when you grow up?

A. When I grow up I would love to be an actress, a professional soccer player, or a wildlife photographer.

Q. What is your dream role?

A. My dream role would be to play Alice in “Alice and Wonderland” because she gets to go on a great adventure and meet all kinds of interesting characters!
