Meghan K Randolph
Meghan is an arts administrator, performer, and director. In 2005, at age 23, she founded Madison, Wisconsin's first professional musical theatre company, Music Theatre of Madison, which focuses on lesser-known, seldom performed, provocative, and socially conscious works of musical theatre. The organization's work has been deemed "crucial to the local theatre scene" by the community press. The company has produced several state, Midwest, and world premieres as well as developmental readings of new works and reinvented, site-specific versions of cult classics. The company is also conscious of keeping its work highly accessible, offering many free and low-cost events throughout each season. Meghan's continuing research is on specific marketing strategies for attracting audiences to lesser-known pieces. Her work has been published in HowlRound and through Wolf Brown's Culture Lab Research Library, for which she recently completed a research fellowship. As a performer, she toured the country in CATS and earned a BFA in musical theatre from the University of Michigan, and often performs with local professional theatres. She also holds a Master's of Science in Arts Administration from Drexel University. Learn more about her at www.mtmadison.com.
