It is with great pleasure that the SPRC announces the hiring of a new Administrative Assistant, Madeleine Buttitta. In her interview with the Committee, she impressed us by her competence and her pleasant, poised personality. In addition to her office experience, she is very well educated with a Master’s Degree in Shakespearean Studies from Mary Baldwin University. Her extensive computer skills were also an important factor in our decision to offer her the job over several qualified candidates. As a result, she will be able to take over both aspects of Sarah’s job—that of administrative assistant and that of book-keeper! We were really excited to hear that. She plans to start her job on June 1. Madeleine “Maddie” Buttitta is originally from Chicago, but has called Virginia home for the past ten years. She has served as administrative assistant for the American Shakespeare Center Theatre Camp in the summer of 2016, stage management assistant for their 2017 Renaissance Season, and, most recently, as tour guide. Outside of Shakespeare, Maddie fancies herself to be a relatively experienced stage manager and actor; she is also a classically trained vocalist.
