Rhonda is what folks around MAD call “The Boss,” because of her complete understanding of all the aspects of MAD and every show we do. With over 20 years of theatre experience in various aspects of productions, Rhonda is an integral part of MAD Productions, and without her, we could not succeed.
Olin meadows - Young professional director
Olin is excited to serve as Artistic Director and work among his friends. Olin has been directing theatre for over 15 years and has been involved in theatre for over 20 years. He recently graduated from Western Governors University with a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies and currently teaches 5th Grade at West Cypress Hills Elementary School in Spicewood.
