Macy Doucette is a senior music major. She is ecstatic to be performing in her last college show alongside her fellow seniors! Being able to share the stage with them has been a true pleasure and is something that was missed in the last two years. When she is not on the stage, Macy can be found reading, doing homework, designing light plots for no specific purpose other than she finds it entertaining, or working at CShop (shout out to Terry). Also a huge shout out to my mom for supporting me all these years (sorry Daniel but I have to say it) thank you, I love you!
