Canyon Country Vocal Star To Compete In Macaroni Grill Sing Off

If you’ve been to the Canyon Theatre Guild, you’ve seen her as Betty Jean in “The Marvelous Wonderettes” or as Pasty Cline in “Always…Patsy Cline.” While still in high school she starred as Eponine in Canyon High’s production of “Les Miserables.” In 2010, she graduated from CalArts with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Classical Voice.

Now Stevenson Ranch resident Marie Wise-Hawkins is hoping for enough votes to make it the Romano’s Macaroni Grill Opera Sing Off finals in Dallas, Texas.
