Meet the Youth Troupe Leader, Melanie Toscan
"I have loved working with the community on various drama productions in the local area, so it feels right to begin working closely with local youth within the Griffith Regional Theatre’s Youth Troupe. I’m very excited to discover the many talents I have no doubt will be with the group". - Melanie Toscan
Melanie has been performing on stage since an early age. She has performed many roles locally ranging from the explosive ‘Tybolt’ in ‘Romeo and Juliet’ to the tenacious cheerleader ‘Serena’ in ‘Legally Blonde’ the musical. In more recent times Melanie has been playing the roles of producer and visual designer for local productions. In 2019 she was nominated for a Canberra Area Theatre Award (CAT award) for Best Leading Actress in a play for her role as ‘Hermia’ in the Griffith and Regional Association of the Performing Arts (GRAPA) ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.
