Sarah Melo is a scenic painter, designer, and graphics-maker formerly based in Vancouver B.C., where she earned her B.F.A. in Theatre Design and Production from the University of British Columbia. Since graduating in 2014, she has worked for two years as the Head Painter for Bard on the Beach, spent a few months in Kamloops painting for Western Canada Theatre, designed many children’s shows, and became the Co-Artistic Director of Aenigma Theatre (a small upstart company focused on dramatic works). Though Vancouver was lovely, she has decided to return to her home state of Washington in hopes of breaking in to the U.S. theatre scene…so she can actually repay her student loans and have a yard for her cats to run around in. She is very excited to start her scenic painting internship and looks forward to her time at SRT!
