The melodrama cast
Sydni is back and ready for the holiday season once again! The last time you saw Sydni on the Melodrama stage was earlier this year in Treasure Island as Ms. Arrow, and the Soda Shop Vaude. Since then, she has moved to the LA area to continue pursuing her love of theatre, but of course can't stay away from her hometown of the Central Coast and one of her favorite places, the Melodrama. Happy Holidays everybody!
Billy is happy to be spending the Yuletide with his Melodrama family!Central Coast audiences will remember him from many Melodrama shows throughout the years along with PCPA and San Luis Obispo Repertory Theatre . He has performed at many regional theatres throughout the US and toured Europe and Israel. He has studied dance and theatre at the North Carolina School of the Arts and New York University. Bah Humbug!
Katie is thrilled to be returning to the Melodrama stage after playing Donna in Pappa Pia and Alice/Reporter in How The West Was Really Won this past summer.
