Mellisa Taylor (Director)
As a kid, Mellisa’s parents tried getting her involved with various dance and sports – all to no avail, due to her spectacular ability to fall and trip over air molecules. A deaf ear, combined with a distinct lack of interest in sports, meant that her efforts were better served in a capacity that didn’t require quite as much balance and coordination. So, they enrolled her in voice lessons in an effort to help her find her talent. Thankfully, it worked! Voice lessons led to musicals, which led to acting… which eventually led to directing with the Wheat Ridge Theatre Company. Mellisa also serves on the Board of Directors at the WRTC, and is grateful for the opportunity to work with such a wonderful and incredibly talented group of people.
