Melissa Farmer MELISSA FARMER  EDUCATION ASSOCIATE

Melissa is a Toronto-based arts educator who likes working, mainly, with kids, sticks and masks (generally in that order).  She comes to Toronto after seven years in the sunshine of Sydney, Australia.  While overseas, Melissa taught high school Drama and English, studied Voice at NIDA with Bill Pepper, adjudicated for The Shakespeare Globe Centre Australia and Sydney University, and worked on projects involving kids and performance for Belvoir Street Theatre, Sydney Theatre Company, Shopfront Theatre and Playback Theatre Sydney.  Melissa is currently part of the Educator Advisory Committee at Canadian Stage, and teaches Drama at Branksome Hall.  She is happy to be back in the land of drip coffee and ketchup chips.
