Director: Melinda Campbell
Melinda has been dedicating her time and artistic talents to Simcoe Little Theatre for more than two decades and when she reflects on those years she is flooded with wonderful memories. Melinda has been involved with almost every aspect of the theatre, starting backstage and in hair and makeup, to being center stage acting in shows before stepping into the role of director and even writing her own plays for the SLT stage. Melinda wrote the play “Save The Theatre” and was directing rehearsals in March of 2020 when the pandemic hit, putting that production on hold.
“A Pandemic may have closed us down temporarily, but the spirit of our little theatre is still alive and well. It is held tightly in the hearts of all the volunteers that are dedicated to keeping community theatre alive in Simcoe and beyond”
For Melinda, Simcoe Little Theatre has been a place that brought her laughter, tears and wonderful memories. It has been a place to meet with friends and be entertained. Melinda is thrilled to be back in the Director’s chair and is looking forward to the joy and satisfaction she gets when being part of a production team, bringing top quality community theatre to the SLT stage.
