My name is Addison McKissack and I have been a theatre nerd for 8 years. It all started when my middle school decided to hold auditions for a silly show called “The Hysterical Histories of the Trojan War.” I was a little obsessed with Greek mythology at the time so I decided to sign up and I got one of the leading roles. That is where my obsession with the theatre began and a couple years later, it’s still going strong
I went on to perform in over 10 shows in both community and school theatre. Some of my favorite roles from this time have been: Charlotte Hay (Moon Over Buffalo), The Artful Dodger (Oliver!) and Reggie Fluty (The Laramie Project). As well as performing, I had the opportunity to study with an acting and vocal coach. However, as I got older it became more clear to me that my personal chances of making it on the stage were slim, so I decided to turn to writing, another one of my passions as a way to stay a part of the theatre community
Ever since that silly show in middle school, I have been a proud member of the theatre community and I love everything about it. I love it all so much that I decided to make a living out of sharing my love of the theatre with others. I am a student at Texas State University studying Journalism with a minor in theatre, and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store.
