Colleen Madden


Colleen Madden makes her Chicago debut at Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Madison and Milwaukee credits include productions with: Forward Theater, Madison Repertory Theatre, Renaissance Theatreworks, Milwaukee Repertory Theater; next season she joins Milwaukee Chamber Theater to play Sister Aloysius in Doubt. She is a Core Company Member at American Players Theatre in Spring Green, Wisconsin, and will be seen this coming season as Titania in A Midsummer Night's Dream and Beatrice in A View from the Bridge. She holds an MFA from the University of Delaware's Professional Theatre Training Program. Colleen still remembers her “PHENOMENAL” tenth-grade English teacher, “who ‘made’ us ready Henry IV. He got me to really dig the poetry, though much of it went over my head.”  What she loves most about acting is, “the willingness of us all—actors and audience—to agree to pretend together for a while…so that we can re-learn something about life.”
