Noelle McCabe (Marketing & Communications Consultant) is an arts administrator and actress. A born-and-raised Seattleite, she went to Salmon Bay School and Roosevelt High School. Noelle participated in theatrical programs at both educational institutions, but her love of theatre was profoundly influenced by participating in the Seattle Public Theater Youth Ensemble, helmed at that time by Penguin Productions Producing Artistic Director Shana Bestock, for ten formative years of her young life, age 8-18.
Later attending St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, she received her B.A. Theatre Major and Management Studies Concentration (emphases in acting and arts administration), graduating Magna Cum Laude and with Distinction in Theatre. During her collegiate years while not performing on stage, Noelle was an active member of her school's theatre publicity team and served as the Director of PR and Marketing for the school's student-run theatre company, Deep End Productions. Also during this time, Noelle interned and worked with multiple theatre companies to explore the administrative and educational realms of professional theatre, including Seattle Children's Theatre and Children's Theatre of Charlotte in North Carolina.
Once she returned to Seattle after graduation, Noelle received theatrical training as a member of the inaugural Intiman Theatre Emerging Artist Program and was also a member of the 2015/16 Professional Arts Training Program (PATP) at Seattle Repertory Theatre. After beginning as a PATP intern at Seattle Rep, Noelle was hired on to full-time staff and has been a member of the theatre's Marketing & Communications department ever since.
Noelle is a proud founding member of the newly-formed Albatross Theatre Laboratory, and a member of the former Bathhouse Ensemble. Noelle wants to continue to follow both her theatre administration and performance paths, and is thrilled to be based in a theatrical community producing new and exciting work. You may have seen Noelle on stage recently in Albatross' fall 2018 production of Three Days of Rain, produced in partnership with Penguin Productions.
