Camp Broadway presents Develop Your Character hosted by Elysa Gardner who talks with theatre insiders about ideas to help culture-loving kids and aspiring artists become great performers at every stage of their lives. This episode features Melissa Errico, award-winning actress, recording artist and essayist for the New York Times.
Melissa grew up in a home that valued education and encouraged making learning fun. By high school she was interested in “the adventure of the arts” and started auditioning. She started working professionally by age 18 and has since balanced her career on stage, television and film with her role as wife and mother of three talented children. She discusses the difference between achievement and accomplishment, as well as encourages young artists to focus more on mastering skills, pursuing self-initiated work and living life to the fullest. “Our actual life is as important as the art—everything is co-mingled.”
