Monica M. Wemitt, born in Pittsfield, MA and raised in Chatham, started with the Mac-Haydn Theatre as a volunteer on the Fairgrounds. After Monica moved to NYC., she tended bar, waitressed, & temped in the accounting departments of The Metropolitan Opera Guild, I. M. Pei, and British Telecommunications (BT) as her “survival” jobs. After a rather intense audition, Monica found she was going to be one of 12 women performing with Liza Minnelli at Radio City Music Hall. After the amazing response the show received in NYC, it toured nationally, Europe, and came back to Radio City. Later she auditioned and landed the role of Ernestina Money with Carol Channing in Hello, Dolly! when she made her Broadway debut. She later landed the 3rd National Tour of Beauty & The Beast & toured for four years. Monica was approached to be the office assistant, and gal Friday at Mac-Haydn. With the amount of office/bookkeeping experience in the temp jobs she’d had, and with meeting new people all over the country for several years while touring, it was pretty much a perfect fit. Monica was then made the Company Manager/Asst Producer in 2013 and still performs at Mac-Haydn as often as possible.
