Madelyn Payne is ecstatic to be joining the cast of A Christmas Carol for a second year. After making her stage debut as the flirtatious Susan Wilkes in Huckleberry Finn at Knoxville Children’s Theater, she has performed eight roles onstage. She recently began working behind the scenes in costuming and stage management with the encouragement of KCT’s Zack Allen. Maddy Grace is a sixth grader at Vine Middle Magnet School, and enjoys singing, dancing, and talking to her friends. She would like to thank Ms. Kathleen and Mr. Patrick for this incomparable experience.
