Meet Thaisa, wife of Pericles

Melissa McMichael is very excited to be playing the role of Thaisa in this summer’s Bard in the Barracks’ production of The Adventures of Pericles. Bold, and maybe a little impulsive, Thaisa knows exactly what she wants and knows exactly how to get it. She is well educated in the ways of dancing and writing strongly worded letters; which is exactly how she wins Pericles’ hand in marriage (and definitely not the other way around). Though Thaisa wears her heart on her sleeve she can remain in control of the situation, even when misfortune strikes. Who said that marriage and parenthood was supposed to be smooth sailing?melissa
