Originally from Washington state, McKenna has moved across the country to attend Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, where she is currently a rising junior of the 2023 class. She fell in love with performing in Kindergarten, and has dreamed of becoming an actor ever since. While she is currently studying Computer Science and Japanese, McKenna is still very active in her university’s drama programs. Her most favorite roles include Wednesday Addams (The Addams Family Musical), Dorothy Gale (The Wizard of Oz), Grace Fryer (Radium Girls), Penelope Pennywise (Urinetown), and Madame Arcati (Blithe Spirit), the last of which being her debut role with the Lehigh Department of Theatre and winner of Lehigh Valley Press News’ “Best Actress” award. McKenna also has directing experience from creating and leading “Broadway for #brAvery,” a musical cabaret dedicated to raising money for the Avery Huffman DIPG Foundation.

McKenna stumbled across OBP on TikTok, and instantly fell in love with the well-crafted production that combined her two favorite things- theatre and D&D! She is honored to have been given the opportunity to work alongside the amazingly talented and passionate cast/crew that she fell in love with as an audience member. McKenna would like to thank her family, boyfriend, and Tory for believing in her, and thank you for reading this and attending the show!
