Meet McLennan Theatre star, Reanna Fornash!

This spring, Reanna took the stage as the iconic Morticia Addams in MCC’s production of “The Addams Family – A New Musical”. Throughout her time at MCC, Reanna says she has been surprised by MCC’s theatre program, as it has allowed her to try her hand at different areas within the department including stage makeup, costume design, and set design. While she loves performing, Reanna dreams of using her skills to open and run a children’s theatre.

“I have always wanted to teach kids since I was in middle school, however theatre has always been a huge passion of mine. It wasn’t until this year, my friend told me about directing and it hit me that I could do both.”
