Elise Mayfield is thrilled to be making her return to the RMTC after over a decade away. After graduating from Ole Miss with a BFA in Musical Theatre, Elise moved to Chicago, where she studied and performed improv/sketch comedy with Second City, I.O., and various storefront theater companies. She also earned a MA in Interdisciplinary Arts from Columbia College Chicago. After braving eight frigid winters and a stint on MasterChef, Elise returned to her hometown of Birmingham, where she continues to tread the boards at TNT, VST, and BIT. Off the stage, Elise works as an assistant food stylist and is the host of Smart Cookie, a baking webseries produced by Allrecipes. She would like to thank her ever supportive parents, Randy and Sherie, and wonderful fiance, Max, for their love.
