Hollie has been making theatre in the Portland area since 2014. After getting her B.A. in Theatre from The University of Southern Maine, Hollie joined the STAGES team in the fall of 2018, and has been directing, writing, acting, and teaching here ever since! When Hollie’s not making magic happen at STAGES, she can be found drinking iced lattes and doing jigsaw puzzles while hanging out with her cool cat, Oracle.
Hollie has directed plays for The Theater Project in Brunswick and Polyphonic Theatre Ensemble in Portland, as well as plays featured in Portland’s PortFringe Festival and FringePVD in Providence, RI. Hollie was also chosen to be a featured playwright for the 2020 (now 2021!) Maine Playwright’s Festival! Some of her favorite acting roles include Snout/THE WALL in A Midsummer Night’s Dream with Fenix Theatre Company in Deering Oaks Park, and Luca in STAGES’s original production, The Songbird. Her most favorite award she’s ever received is “The-Most-Cheese-Consumed-in-a-Single-Performance-Award” from FringePVD!
As a member of the STAGES team, Hollie is a director, choreographer, designer, teaching artist, TYA performer, programming manager, and other roles!
