"Mara works hard to be a strong and critical part of theatre in Milwaukee as a performer, as a visionary, and as an organizer – she has allowed her skills to be tapped in new and exciting ways in the last couple years and UPROOTED, The World’s Stage, and T.I.M. are just a few groups to have benefited from her passion and dedication."
