It’s 1986 and Meade is home after her freshman year of college with loads of new ideas in her head … and 40 new pounds on her five-foot frame. Her Dad – a tough, no-nonsense, world-renowned gymnastics coach – takes one horrified look at his ‘super-sized’ daughter and issues an ultimatum: shed the weight by summer’s end or kiss college goodbye! Flash forward. After losing 70 pounds, Meade attends a college reunion and runs into her old roommate, who wants to know how she shed the weight. But this tale of life changes – like the confrontation between old friends – takes some decidedly unexpected twists.
Meade has appeared from coast to coast in everything from Shakespeare to Sondheim to really bad murder mystery dinner theatre. Favorite Bay Area roles include Sarah Brown in “Guys and Dolls” and the title role in “Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge.”
