Meet Rosie, a senior double-majoring in Legal Studies and Psychology. Rosie has been preparing for her Humorology career ever since her debut as The Cat in the Hat in the Memphis Jewish Community Center’s production of Seussical the Musical. She first began her rise to the spotlight her freshman year in the winning show “Circus Berzerkus”, when a few cast illnesses landed her a solo in the a cappella and a chance to upstage Humo legend, Matt Grande. Her sophomore year, Rosie directed the winning show, “A Deck of Deception”, and starred as the iconic Caesar. After a short-lived stint abroad, she’s more than ready to take on a new challenge as this year’s Music Director. Rosie’s absolute favorite Humo moments are watching cast members embrace the fact that they’re the theater kids of UW-Madison and showing them that anyone can learn to sing (well, almost anyone). When she’s not planning her future as a Supreme Court Justice, Rosie maintains an avid career as a TikTokker, amateur film reviewer, and late-night bedroom karaoke star. Rosie is so excited to be this year’s Music Director and help every cast achieve musical success!

Meet Lily, a senior double-majoring in Journalism and Political Science with a certificate in Jewish Studies! She began her Humo career freshman year as Background Dancer #4, until one of the cast’s leads quit three weeks in. Because her Humo faces cannot be beat (probably because of her big mouth, which she can fit 7-8 marshmallows in), she was casted as Rapunzel in 2017’s “Tale as Old as Time” show. Lily is no newcomer to the stage; she danced for 16 years and has been in multiple musicals, playing roles ranging from Pinnochio to Mulan. Her second year in Humo, she directed and choreographed “Once Upon a Dating App”, and absolutely LOVED her cast. Before she went abroad this year, Lily danced in SChiZ’s show “The Dream Factory”. Her all time favorite memories from Humo were when her Rapunzel wig fell off and choked her during her first show ever, when she became best friends with her cast during tech week or when she won “Best Group Number” for the legendary Break Them Up. When she is not at Humo, you can find Lily in Memorial Union eating Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream, at Memorial library in the second floor stacks, third table to the right when you walk in or singing (screaming) musicals in her bedroom. This year, she is so excited to watch all of the casts become best friends while raising money for an incredible cause. She can’t wait to work on choreography/clean dances/teach fraternity boys how to twerk/cartwheel with all of you!

Meet Nikki, a senior majoring in Communication Arts, with certificates in Digital Studies and Education and Educational Services. She is so excited to be the Public Relations Chair so she can put her love of creativity and philanthropy together. For as long as she can remember, Nikki has loved all things show business and has a lifelong dream of being on Broadway. Sadly, she is not musically inclined, so Humorology is the perfect outlet for her to pretend to know how to sing and dance while raising money to support the Madison community - her two favorite things! Freshman year she played ringleader Joanie in the winning show, “Circus Berzerkus”. Since then, she went on to direct a winning show herself, “Deck of Deception”. More importantly, that is when she won the “Best Costumes” award, which still hangs up on her bedroom wall as proud as ever. When she is not daydreaming about being as good of a singer as Rosie, she is probably rewatching old Humorology shows, planning out the next design to paint on her nails, or eating anything with rainbow sprinkles on top. She is thrilled to be in this role and cannot wait for an amazing 2020-2021 Humorology season!

Meet Brett, a Senior studying Physics. He has been a part of Humorology since his freshman year. When not working in the physics lab or studying, Brett is most likely doing something with Humorology. First taking the role of Aladdin in his freshman year show, “Tale as Old as Time”, He then went on to direct for two years working with two amazing casts. As the Financial Administrator of Humorology this year, Brett is looking forward to helping keep Humorology a well oiled laugh-making and fundraising machine. Drawn to Humo by the musical and social pulls, he has ultimately been hooked by the amazing work Humorology can do in helping the Madison community. He is also looking forward to working with all of the wonderful people of Humorology along the way. Other than Humo, Brett loves to work with the lasers and atoms in his lab building an atomic clock, run long distances on a whim, and read textbooks when bored. Brett is elated to have the opportunity to be the Financial Administrator of Humorology this year!
