Hank is so happy to be back on the Melodrama stage! Last seen in Muskie Love, he is always excited to dive into these wild quirky characters! He is an Idaho native but he lives and works primarily in New York. He has appeared Off-Broadway and on stages across the country. In his spare time he builds sets for Broadway shows and has celebrated 800 performances working with the NYC company of Jersey Boys. If you read this bio, come tell him and he’ll give you a sticker after the show!
Meggie is proud to be a geek and not scared to shout it out in a monotone, mildly moderate manner. Originally from New Jersey, she has spent the last ten years traveling the country working in numerous regional theaters, but will always consider the Central Coast her home away from home. She was last seen on the Melodrama stage in Muskie Love. She would like to thank her tiny, little brother (who helps his sister do all sorts of crazy errands on his days off), and the entire Melodrama team for making her time here so special.
Born and raised on the Central Coast, Sydni is a graduate of Nipomo High School (Class of 2013) and PCPA-Pacific Conservatory Theatre (Class of 2015).

Some of her shows include Less Miserable, Treasure Island, The Holiday Extravaganza, Frankenstein's Bride, and most recently, Sherlock Holmes and the Sign of the Four. A big shout out to her parents, sister, and fiancé for their never-ending love and support. “Enjoy and stay weird, my friends.”
