Marshmelodrama Productions seeks to place Jesus Christ “Center Stage” in the lives of youth and adults to encourage them to use their gifts in life long ministry. While reaching out to others in the name of Jesus, our community of actors build social skills, team work, and a love for the arts through entertainment in theatre.
Marshmelodrama Productions was conceived by Diane Cater and fully came to fruition in 2010 with the production of the musical “Anne of Green Gables,” with a cast of 24 youth. Since then, Marshmelodrama has put many plays and musicals onto the stage.
The evening that a heroine, in a Melodrama play out west, waved from the stage to a 10 year old Diane, she knew that she wanted to become an actress. Working to overcome her shyness and fear of being in front of others, Diane acted in high school plays, acting classes, and community theater. Since falling in love with Jesus at the age of 26, she has been acting and directing plays and musicals for churches and schools. Diane has a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a concentration in Theater and a Masters in Early Childhood Education.
Through productions, camps, and workshops, Diane enjoys sharing her love for the arts with a variety of ages, especially youth. As Marshmelodrama Productions continues to grow, we look forward to many more fun and successful seasons!
