More about Marie Tredway ’17

Marie Tredway ’17 is an award-winning director and actor in the Chicago and Milwaukee area. She has performed in numerous works, earning multiple awards, including a Kennedy Center’s 2018 American College Theatre Festival Award for Distinguished Performance as Fannie Lou Hammer, in the Carthage production, “A Seat at the Table.”

Originally studying nursing at a college in Illinois, Ms. Tredway first learned about Carthage when she saw a production at a regional theater festival. She was so impressed with what she saw that, at the age of 30, she applied to the College, auditioned for a scholarship, and transferred to Carthage. As a non-traditional student and mother of two, she graduated Magna Cum Laude, made the Dean’s List four times, and won multiple scholarships and awards along the way.

Ms. Tredway says the idea of “artist activism” is very important to her and credits Carthage theatre faculty for inspiring that in her as well as her love for directing. She practices using theatre to make meaningful commentary on society, and recently directed the political satire “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” for Three Brothers Theatre.

Every day, she looks for opportunities to use her art to uplift, inspire, and build.

This event is a Red Bracelet Project event and is brought to you by the Carthage College Intercultural Center for Equity, Advocacy, and Engagement!
