Melodrama Ensemble

Melodrama is a style of theatre that was prominent in the Victorian era. It uses exaggeration and stereotyped characters to appeal to the audience’s emotions. An evident and loud vocal delivery is needed in a melodrama, facing out to the audience, combined with large gestures and exaggerated facial expressions. 


The performance for 2022 was Chasing Rainbows. Chasing Rainbows is rollicking good fun, devised and performed by the Blue Roo Theatre Company’s small ensemble. A whacky search to the end of the rainbow for a stolen, elusive pot of gold!
