I Can't... I Have Rehearsal is Maddie's first foray into documentary filmmaking.  The Emmy-winning NJTV production originally aired in May 2017, has screened at various film festivals, and is available online and via the PBS OTT application.


For a select few, the high school musical is sacred. Every year those students come together for the Tonys of New Jersey high school musical theatre: The Rising Star Awards. But first, they have to get their shows off the ground. This is the story of six very different high schools from across New Jersey as they rehearse, perform and compete with the very same 'supercalifragilistic' show.


Maddie was a producer on the PBS documentary series episodes Treasures of New York: MoMA and In Motion: Martha Graham Dance Company at LIU Post.
