Marialana Ardolino has worked as a stage manager since 2008 in Brooklyn with Narrows Community Theater. When not having fun in the theater she’s helping the world with her technical skills in the computer field. It’s the magic of building something from nothing that keeps her coming back for more. Happy to be involved with such a talented cast.
