Melodie Taylor-Mauldin, a consummate actress, dancer, singer started her performing career very early, walking through her neighborhood with her two best friends and a red wagon full of instruments and costumes and knocking on neighbors doors and offering to perform in their front yards! She continued performing and dancing in high school and then on to college with a scholarship in the performing arts. She spent most of her undergrad singing tight jazz harmonies in a very select group of singers at Utah State University, where she first met Teddy and Terresa and formed the friendships that would eventually lead to the creation of Lady Luck. Melodie then transferred to Weber State University where she earned a degree in Music/Dance/Theater. Stage Credits include ‘Mother’ in Mr. A’s Amazing Maze Plays (earning her an Irene Ryan American Collegiate Award), South Pacific, Oklahoma, 42nd Street, Quilters, Jacques Brel, The Barber of Seville, and Comedy Tonight. While still performing she added Choreography and Stage Direction to her portfolio, helped found MDT Workshop for youth 8-18 in Boise,Idaho, taught for St. Thomas Playhouse Company B Theater Camp Productions, Rise Up & Sing Vocal Camp, and served as Artistic Advisor for Music Theater West. Choreography credits include work with Utah State University, Opera Idaho, Music Theater West, Company of Fools, Footlight Dance. Theater directing credits include Utah State University, Sun Valley Resort Entertainment, Wahoo Review and the Premiere of Jay Richard’s "Little Women” at Logan, Utah’s historic Ellen Eccles Theater, of which Logan’s Herald Journal stated was, “…a giant theatrical achievement!”. Favorite performances include the role of Anna in the The King and I and the role of Eliza in My Fair Lady, and, most recently, Company of Fools productions of A Year with Frog & Toad, and A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine. Lady Luck brings together two of Mel’s greatest passions: her long abiding friendships and her love for music, dance and theater.
