Madeline Belknap

Acting / MFA

I am an actor/witch originally from Scranton, PA (yes, like The Office). I moved to Washington, DC in 2013 to earn my BA in Drama and BA in Music from the Catholic University of America. After graduating in 2017, I worked in DC as a professional theatre actor, accompanist, music director, composer, costume designer/stitcher, and K-12 music teacher. Oh, also a dog walker!
And I taught music lessons. No, I didn’t sleep! In September of 2022, I married the love of my life, Jon Kirby, in the mountains of PA. We moved to the Bay Area in August 2023 so I could pursue my MFA in Acting. Back when I felt joy, I liked hiking, running, reading, playing DorfRomantik on the switch, eating cookies, and Taylor Swift. Shoutout to Pterodactyl and Megalodon for crushing the whole being a cat thing, Natalie and Thomas for “elevating my sparkle” (Natalie, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN??), and Jon Kirby for being the greatest human to have ever existed.
