Where Are They Headed Next? Mary Melnick (Mother)

Mary Melnick, Mother in "Ragtime", has a rich, full life outside of "Ragtime", as a wife, mother of a 2 year old and elementary school teacher. While Mary used to be a theatre junkie, doing multiple shows a year, she has slowed way down in the face of all her other priorities.

Luckily we snagged her for "Ragtime", and lucky Saratoga Drama Group has snagged her to play Nellie Forbush in "South Pacific" next winter.

So, no rest for this Mother. She goes back to teaching her 5th grade class in 3 week and starts rehearsal for "SP" in November.

As Mary puts it, she's looking forward to playing Nellie, a very different sort of role than Mother, and getting the opportunity to be "silly."
