Meagan Thompson

A career in comedy

“When I grow up, I want to be Will Ferrell,” young Meagan Thompson told her fourth grade teacher. Now, as a senior Musical Theatre major, Meagan has a career-making opportunity before her. This summer she will participate in an intensive improv comedy workshop at Chicago's world-famous The Second City, whose alumni include such comedy icons as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Steve Carell. Thanks to four years at LaGrange, Meagan says she’s ready for the challenge.
