Melissa Collins Henderson began theatre work in high school and, after living out a few stranger-than-fiction tales herself, rediscovered her passion for storytelling through acting. A Louisiana native who’s lived in some far-ranging places, Melissa moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2014 where she has returned to stage work. She has played Linda Loman in Short Order Theatre Company’s production of Death of a Salesman, as well as a principal role in Not Food for Monsters, part of Burien Actors Theatre’s BAT Playwrights FestivalShe has performed in four productions with Valley Center Stage: A Christmas Carol (two years), Jake's Women, and Sherlock Holmes: The Baker Street Irregulars. Melissa has also performed in staged readings with Fantastic.Z as well as in student productions (Freehold’s Motherhood Out Loud and Shakespeare Intensive at Hing Hay Park). Her training (in Austin and Seattle) is diverse and includes scene study, improv, Meisner, acting for the camera, voiceover, and Shakespeare. She continues to hone her craft through formal training and work (play) with other theatre artists in the Seattle area, in particular, with Eastside Actors Lab(oratory).
