Just before spring break, the Black Box Players took a trip to New York City, where we saw two wonderful productions Come From Away and By The Way, Meet Vera Stark. We had the great privilege to meet two wonderful artists, Happy McPartlin from Come From Away and the amazing Jessica Frances Dukes from By The Way, Meet Vera Stark.

Thank you to Professor KenYatta Rogers and Black Box Players president, Aimée MaGowan, for arranging this trip for us.

One part student and one part friend, two parts explorer and four parts drama queen. When you put it all together you’d have a nice apple pie and I just made myself very hungry.

My name is Madlené and I am from South Africa. I have been privileged enough to be able to experience the American culture and get to know a variety of amazing people living here. I enjoy travelling and discovering new places but above all I love meeting new people and learning about their culture while sharing mine as well.

In my free time I enjoy reading a good book or two and of course I am addicted to Netflix (Not my fault . . . it’s those 10 seconds they give you to choose whether you want to go on with the show or stop and I seem to miss clicking the stop button every time). I love writing songs and performing in front of others. Over the weekend I like hanging out with my friends, going to see theatre performances and discovering new places to hike, eat or just to have fun.

 I am majoring in Performance Theatre and want to pursue a career in Musical Theatre.

I am excited to share my college experience with you and I hope you enjoy this journey with me.
