WEST LAFAYETTE, INDIANA (Dress Rehearsal – September 21, 2022) – Purdue Theatre’s production of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Everybody directed by Sonita L.

Hansen Theatre in West Lafayette, Indiana. The show will open September 23 at the Nancy T. Hansen Theatre in Yue-Kong Pao Hall of Visual and Performing Arts, and follow with multiple digital & In-person performances through October 2, 2022. The following excerpt is courtesy of Purdue Theatre’s official website:

“Considered a contemporary masterpiece, this 2018 Pulitzer Prize finalist is a retelling of the medieval morality play Everyman. Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ story follows the character Everybody as they search for the meaning of life in face of Death. Each performance, a lottery will determine which actor plays Everybody–offering a uniquely engaging morality tale for today!”

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
