Mandie is a 2016 midterm graduate of Nipomo High School, and she is beyond excited to originate the role of Yin in Reach. This is her second year being involved in the drama program, and she has loved every minute of it. Some of her recent adventures have included performing in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland with NHS Drama, and co-directing an adaptation of the Greek tragedy Medea. This is her first time acting on the stage this year, and it will also be the last. Being in drama has completely changed the course of her life, and Mandie will now be pursuing theater as a career. She will be attending the American Musical and Dramatics Academy in Hollywood starting in Fall of 2016, a.k.a. her dream university. She dreams about being a star!
