Daddy Long Legs
"Maddie Olsem and Chris Paulson....are the perfect performers for these roles and this venue. Olsem sets the tone for the show as she opens it and right away I was impressed with her voice."
- The Stages of MN
"Maddie Olsem is absolutely darling as Jerusha Abbott, an orphan girl who wins a chance at a college education through her writing. She sings divinely and her expressions and actions feel genuine. I was rooting for her from the first note."

A Chorus Line
"One highlight of this production for me was the trio of Laura Blythe, Susan Scharnau, and Maddie Olsem singing a heartrending song about the beauty of the ballet, and its contrast with their everyday lives. Olsem in particular, as the character of Maggie, had a voice that soared above all as she sang about how she would love to dance with her daddy 'At the Ballet'"
