Mackenzie is currently performing as the Hatter and The Doctor in Then She Fell, an immersive theatre piece inspired by Alice in Wonderland with Third Rail Projects in Brooklyn, NY. The show has had a sold-out, six and a half year run and she is thrilled to be a part of this incredible cast. Get your tickets at www.thenshefell.com.
Recently, she played Banquo, The Porter, Young Siward, etc. in a seven-person version of Macbeth with Stages on the Sound and she went to Colorado to be a part of the LOCAL LAB new play readings of Oregon Shakespeare Festival's Play On Translation of Merchant of Venice by Elise Thoron and Silence by Jason Grote.
In 2016, she was fortunate enough to be a part of a three-month-long, sold-out run of Sweet & Lucky with Third Rail Projects and the Denver Center. It was an immersive piece that took place in a 16,000 square-foot warehouse near downtown Denver. Other favorite projects include playing Vera Rubin in the Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company's pilot project Vera Rubin: Bringing the Dark to light. BETC partnered with the Fiske Planetarium in Boulder to do a show that combined theatre and the planetarium. She also starred as Betty in White Christmas at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and touring a one-woman version of Twelfth Night, which led into a workshop about gender roles for the Education Department at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. She also had the privilege of singing "The Miller's Son", "Lovely" and "Sooner or Later" with an amazing cast in Stephen Sondheim's Putting It Together at The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.
Mackenzie grew up in East Glacier Park, Montana. She received a BFA in Theatre from The Tisch School of the Arts at NYU (during which time the dorms and apartment buildings she lived in contained more people than her home town). After graduating, she went on to work for Missoula Children's theatre, where she had started her theatre career when she was five as "the lead appleseed" in Johnny Appleseed. She then moved to Denver where she was able to combine her love of the outdoors and her love for theatre. As an actor in Denver, she has worked at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Curious Theatre Company, Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company, The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, Theatreworks, The Aurora Fox, LOCAL Theatre Company, Off-Center, Town Hall Arts Center, Breckenridge's Backstage Theatre and Vintage Theatre. She currently works as a reader with Telsey + Company and as a Teaching Artist with both Stages on the Sound and The Story Pirates, in addition to continuing to collaborate with Third Rail Projects.
