Director of Education, Community Engagement and Symphony
About Maddie Penwell
Maddie (Beer) Penwell joined the Renaissance team in 2018 to manage and oversee the current programming and future efforts as the Director of Education, Community Engagement, and Symphony. Though new to the offices she is no stranger to the Renaissance Theatre. Since 2010, she has been a part of many productions including, main stage musicals as an actor and wig designer, Mansfield Symphony Orchestra concerts as a soloist and ensemble member, Teddy Bear concerts as an actor, as well as a participant in the Teaching Artist Training program.
Maddie is a graduate of Shelby High School and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Musical Theatre from Ashland University. As a young student, she attended many of the Renaissance’s educational programs which helped foster her lifelong passion for the arts and education. She feels her position with the Renaissance will help fulfill her deep sense of responsibility to give back to the local community that has helped support her personal and professional growth and successes.
She enjoys performing on stage with her husband, Colton, cuddling with their dogs, Bob and Phil, and large amounts of black coffee.
