Maidenewa Alba

Maidenewa Alba just finished her sophomore year at Amundsen High School. Feast marks her third APTP show, after this spring’s workshop production of Learning Curve and her APTP debut in last year’s God's Work at the Goodman. Ms. Alba writes: "I joined APTP's workshops at Albany Park Multicultural Academy in seventh grade. I didn't know what I was getting myself into, but all I can say is that it changed my life. APTP taught me the true meaning of community, and I'm proud to call it my second family. I've earned so many opportunities with APTP, from college visits to meeting people I never thought I would meet. It is a blessing to be a part of this ensemble, to work with an amazing team of directors, and to give a voice to these untold stories."
