Ivie Noelle grew up in St George, Utah, and will be playing Jenny as well as one of the Sea Dancers.
Ivie is the youngest daughter in a family of 12 and has always been a great source of entertainment to her family.”The first time I performed on stage was when I was 3 years old and I got to be a fairy in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummers Nights Dream”, I became enamored by every aspect of the performing arts. The lights, costumes, makeup, people, and pure creative energy filled my soul to the brim. Since then I have performed in 26 full productions (Mara will be my 27th!). I have also had the amazing opportunity to work lights, sets, makeup, hair, costumes, props, and sound on a variety of shows for several theaters throughout St George. In 2020 I had my directorial debut, and I have directed 2 additional productions since then. I love this beautiful art form, it filled my soul then and it fills my soul now.
Ivie considers herself not exquisitely good at anything, but mediocre at most things. Some of the hobbies she dabbles in, other than performing are – Roller Skating, Baking/Cooking, Writing, Painting/Drawing, Reading, Exploring the Outside world, Studying History, Calligraphy, Journaling, Playing Guitar, playing Piano, Learning various languages, and (best of all) being an Auntie!
“I am so honored to be part of Mara. The whole process of getting this show onstage has been soul-stretching for me, and I have learned so many beautiful lifelong lessons. I hope that the message of the show stirs your heart, for this whole production has been a labor of love, hard work, and immense creativity. I would like to thank Tammy for letting me be part of her masterpiece and for having the vision to create such a soul-shaking musical. Lastly, I would like to dedicate my performance of this show to my Momma. Thank you for always believing in me and for sacrificing so much to get me where I am today.
Ivie’s motto is – “Why dream small when life is so big?”
– Mara is proof that big dreams create beautiful fruits if only you are brave enough to pursue them.
