“We will all remember Hailey’s amazing performances on stage in Baer Theater, capped by a fantastic portrayal of Roxie Hart in this year’s production of the musical Chicago.

“Hailey’s love of and skill at performing, especially in musical theatre, spreads joy to everyone around her. When she lights up the stage, I completely forget she’s playing a character and get immersed in the show. She embodies the Bette Davis quote that through ‘wonder and insight’ acting ‘becomes creation.’

“I am thankful that Hailey shared her passion and talent with us at MPA and I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot of her on stage in the future!”
