Addie is a producer, director, and educator based at the Guthrie Theater where she works as Associate Producer.
From a young age, Addie acted in children's theater in the Twin Cities. After graduating Dartmouth College, Addie joined Teach for America and taught English and Drama in the Bay Area.
Meanwhile, Addie pursued fellowships in theater directing and artistic administration: she was a recipient of a directing and producing fellowship at Cutting Ball Theater in San Francisco and a National New Play Network Producer-in-Residence at Minneapolis' Mixed Blood Theatre.
She is a graduate of Brown University/ Trinity Rep's MFA Directing program and has since directed at theaters across the country. Her productions have been described as "imaginative, playful, and elegant," "politically poignant," and "sophisticated while also radiating the humanity, passion, and heart you'd find in the young adult section of the library."
She was in the 5th cohort of The National Director's Fellowship (NDF), is a proud member of SDC (Stage Director's and Choreographer's Union), and is represented by Sam Barickman at ICM.
Addie lives in St. Paul, MN with her kid, husband, and dog.
