Madeline Ashman

Maddie performing at the Winchester preview performance of ‘The Girl Who Loved Stalin’ (2017)


Maddie is a multitalented musician and performer who has worked with Slipshod since the very beginning, composing the music for ‘The Babushka’ – our very first show – and then directing a group of musicians throughout all of it’s performances. Although she did not work with us on ‘The Girl Who Loved Stalin’, she did perform a few or her own original songs at it’s preview performance.

Balancing her work in the company with her own band and a degree at Goldsmiths, University of London – Maddie also somehow finds room in her many bag of talents to be an excellent actor and performer too.
