Natalie WalkerNatalie Walker’s (Melanie) illustrious career on the stage began when she auditioned for the title role in a church youth group production of Annie directed by her own mother who, instead, cast her as “Third Orphan from Left.” Undeterred by this egregious betrayal, Natalie threw herself into her craft, and the raw pathos with which she imbued her (solitary) line “don’t it feel like the wind is always howlin’?” was described by Brooks Atkinson as “harrowing”… or would have been, had Brooks Atkinson not been dead for 14 years at the time of the production. BFA: NYU Tisch, Stella Adler Studio of Acting. Favorite credits include Bobbi Michele in Last of the Red Hot Lovers (Hangar Theatre), Karen in Speed-the-Plow (Stella Adler), and the plethora of hardened, world-weary prostitutes she portrayed in summer camp shows prior to getting her braces off (Stagedoor Manor).
