Meet The Artist - Madison Meeron

My name is Madison Meeron, I am 21 years old, and a Theatre Major at Hope College in Holland, MI.

I began my performance career at the age of 3 when my grandma and I would act out The Wizard of Oz beginning to end! Since then I have been adamant about making art.

My mission is to create theatrical works that allow individuals to develop a deeper understanding of themselves, others, and the world. I love working with children and was recently hired as a Teacher’s Assistant at a childcare facility!

Theatre has granted me immense amounts of joy. I hope to spread that joy to others and inspire those younger than me to embark on their own creative journeys!
