On the record ... with Melissa Dye
DeKALB – With two parents who worked there, Melissa Dye says she practically grew up at Northern Illinois University, where she graduated with a degree in vocal performance in 1988 before moving on to Broadway.
Born and raised in DeKalb, Dye, who was a classmate of Cindy Crawford, was very active at DeKalb High School. When she wasn’t participating in orchestra, choir, theater and the French Club, she was running the hurdles and the sprint relays in track. “I pretty much did it all,” she said.
A Jefferson-nominated actress, Dye performed Rapunzel in the Tony Award-winning revival of “Into the Woods” and was Sandy in the first Broadway revival of “Grease.” She has appeared in many Chicago productions, and spent three years performing in both the Toronto and the Canadian national touring company productions of “The Phantom of the Opera.” Dye has also made many guest appearances on TV, had a feature role in a soap opera and can be heard on several vocal recordings.
