Episode 7: Shirley MacLaine and Her Sing-Along Blog with Maddi Huntoon from HCAT

Posted on

We’re making up for lost time with an early release of Episode 7! This is an all-singing, all-dancing, theatre-all-the-time edition of Flat River Front Porch featuring Maddi Huntoon, Theatre Coordinator for the Hans Christian Anderson Theater department of Greenville Area Recreation and Community Center. HCAT puts together family-friendly shows that are acted and produced by kids and community members. Maddi is a drama geek through and through, and shares her passionate journey coming up through acting and producing to running the whole theater. Reference assistant and soon-to-be Steel Magnolias star Sharon Boldt joins us. We test her knowledge of Hans himself, hear about High School Musical Jr. playing February 15-18 (this week, so get your tickets NOW!), and learn the one thing Maddi spends her time doing when she’s not on stage. Also Sharon and I talk Comic Cons, Ren Faires, the best Steel Magnolias lines we can’t repeat on this podcast, and how to teach a Southerner to build a snowman. Put on your costume, enter stage left and join us on the Front Porch!
