Marie McVeigh (Choreographer, Mary Poppins Jr., Public Relations and Content) is a dancer, choreographer, and public relations consultant working in the Philadelphia area. She will graduate from Temple University this fall with a BFA in Dance and BA Strategic Communications. This summer marks Marie’s 10th summer with Summer Stage! Marie’s journey with Summer Stage began as an audience member as a child and then a participant in Rising Stars in 2009. After performing in many children’s theater productions, Marie became a staff member in 2014 as an assistant choreographer and in 2017 was promoted to lead choreographer. She has also been able to develop her public relations skills as a member of the marketing team for two seasons. Marie has met best friends through summer stage, grown as an artist and performer, and created life-long memories at her summer home. She is excited to be performing onstage at Summer Stage again this year in the mainstage production of “42nd Street!” During the year Marie is very involved in the Philadelphia dance community, performing in works by artists Ishmael-Houston Jones, Kun-Yang Lin, and Brian Sanders.
