Megan Voorhies

I began doing theater in middle school at my local children's theater in Alexandria, Louisiana. Family Playhouse was my home for many years before graduating and moving to Lake Charles. Since then I have performed in over 30 productions both community-wide, collegiate, and professional. Most recently I was part of the Polar Express Train Ride in New Orleans. Theatre has always my creative outlet and a place to escape to when everything in life is not going my way. It is definitely my happy place! I am also a 2014 McNeese graduate with a degree in Vocal Music Education and have completed 3 summers of additional studies in Kodaly Methodology at Lamar State University in Beaumont, Texas. I am thankful for all that God has blessed me with and I look forward to working with CYT and seeing what the future has in store for the next generation of theatrical children.
