Maria Stephens - Casting Director
Maria Stephens (Casting Director; Actor, The LIttle Match Girl Passion) last appeared as Norma in "The Silence That Follows"; an incubator project that was co-produced by Facility and A Red Orchid Theatre. Elsewhere in Chicago Maria has worked with The Gift Theatre, Trap Door, The Artistic Home, The Factory, Apple Tree Theatre, and The Mammals. Maria holds a BA in Theatre from the University of Alabama in Birmingham. Maria spent most of her childhood moving from town to town in England as an Air Force brat then off to Alabama to be close to her grandparents. As much as she loved the southern terrain, food and heat Maria longed to be in a bigger city so she moved up north with a tiny bit of saved up cash in her pocket and a pile of dreams. Maria is proud to now call Chicago home and hopes to keep growing her roots here. Maria serves as The Casting Director for Facility and is grateful to be collaborating with this newly formed group of artistic souls.
