Badass Chick Addy Sleeman is an 18-year-old senior at Marblehead High School who has created her very own musical, Dear Marie!. She has also recruited fellow students to act alongside with her, where she will not only be performing in the play, but directing as well.
A member of the church choir since childhood, she really started enjoying the art of performance in middle school. Last summer, she started writing Dear Marie! and had always hoped to perform it. In October, she met with a group of friends and that’s when they decided they could actually make it happen. So she decided to make it part of her Senior Project and, by February, she was set with a group of actors and crew members made entirely of high schoolers.
Dear Marie! is about a boy who writes letters to and falls in love with a girl, but it’s actually her little sister who he’s been corresponding with. It will be performed this weekend at Marblehead Little Theater and it’s free! All of the details are here.
I love that Addy decided to take her work and turn it into a full-blown production, and did it almost entirely on her own! Rock on (and break a leg), Addy!
