2007 has been a highly successful year for Melanie Stace, having just completed three sell-out seasons for Teatro Zinzanni in the USA, playing the lead role of Madame Zinzanni in San Francisco, followed by two further seasons in Seattle.
In Britain, Melanie was first introduced to television audiences as the popular co-presenter of BBC televisions The Generation Game, which she co-presented over a period of six years. She quickly became a household name and personality, much in demand both on TV and in Theatre. During this time, she appeared on many leading light entertainment TV shows, including The Royal Variety Performance and was presented with the Through The Keyhole key by Sir David Frost. Apart from her many television appearances, Melanie is also a fully trained singer, dancer and actress, having appeared in many diverse productions ranging from Shakespeare to Pantomime.
She recently recorded her first album How Lucky, which features twelve of her favorite songs, and includes duets with the legendary Petula Clark and West End Star Tim Flavin. Currently, Melanie is in the studio working on her second album The Key To Me which will be a selection of her own original songs.
In recent months, Melanie has taken her new one woman show onboard the QE2 and the QM2, The Pizza On The Park in London and is looking forward to her debut performances at The Empire Plush Room.
