Merinda is excited to continue her first season at the Civic. She began her love of theatre at Schoolcraft High School, where she was a part of the drama department all four years. Her favorite shows there were Disney's The Little Mermaid, The Mystery of Edwin Drood and You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. At the Civic, she has enjoyed working on Hello, Dolly! and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Merinda would like to thank all of those who support her choice to be a part of the arts.
