BWW Interview/Video: Theatre Miniatures No. 6: Christine Louise Marshall
The sixth video in my ongoing series of mini-portraits of Maine theatre artists profiles Mad Horse Theatre's Artistic Director, Christine Louise Marshall. A native Mainer, raised in Cape Elizabeth and trained as a dancer with Maine State Ballet, Marshall went on to study theatre at Skidmore College. Her twenty-five-year career as an actress, dancer, director, and designer has taken her across the country and back to her home state. Here in Maine she has taught at Maine State Ballet for the past twenty-two years, acted on stage and in films, and now serves as the third Artistic Director of South Portland's Mad Horse Theatre Company, where she devotes her talents not only to creating thought-provoking seasons, but also to acting, directing, and designing costumes for the company's repertoire. In addition, she now has become involved with Cape Elizabeth High School's theatre program where she hopes to be able to put into practice her passion for working with and inspiring young artists.
In this video interview with Broadway World Maine editor, Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold, Marshall talks about her decision to make a life in the theatre, her philosophy for Mad Horse Theatre, and her belief that the arts are fundamental to society and their future lies in today's youth.
