THEATRE DIRECTOR & TEACHER
Hi! My name is Melissa
and I am a theatre maker.
I work in many sides of the theatre, but I specialize in directing and teaching/coaching.
In my personal life, I am married to my high school sweetheart, Matt, and together we have a beautiful baby boy named Milo. Most of all, I am thankful for my relationship with my Savior, Jesus Christ. I find no greater joy than exploring the intersection of faith and art.
My favorite things to do in my spare time are eat (I must admit that I have a terrible sweet-tooth), travel, play at Disneyland, and spend time with family.
Professionally, I especially love to partner with other theatre makers to help bring original, new works or re-imagined classics to the stage. I also love helping artists of all ages and levels hone their craft, discover sides of themselves that they never knew, and fall in love with the theatre
for the first time (or all over again!)
Melissa's creative vision is a wonder to watch come to life and an even bigger joy to be a part of. Her collaborative style makes for a safe, fun, and rewarding experience as an actor. She always has something innovative and exciting to bring to the table, putting her own spin on her work. As an actor, it is vital that the director make us feel both respected and free to make artistic risks and Melissa offers
an environment that does both beautifully.
