MADDIE BARKER really does manage the Rodey stage when a Landmark show happens to be on it. That mean's she is intimately involved with just about everything. She's completing her sixth show and is gearing up for the next.
GINNY CLARK had no idea that when she retired as an executive with Sandia National Laboratories and sent an email to Landmark asking if there were any volunteer opportunities for someone who had no theater experience, what that would mean for her life. She has been stage manager or assistant with eight Landmark productions and is now engaged in all aspects of production.
