Meet the Team

Meet the team of WOW-EFFECT Theater – a group of international theater fans with different levels of experience.
On this page we will introduce you to our team for the season 2018-2019. We hope to see all of them again in the next season!

We have vastly different backgrounds and experience levels when it comes to acting, writing, directing and production, but each member contributes something vital. We all work on our projects as a team and we all are way more than just theater colleagues – we are dear friends to each other.

Melissa Craggs
Melissa CraggsActor, Australian Bibliophile, Extreme sports enthusiast, Documentary watcher, World wanderer, Nature lover, Nerd.
Melissa spends her days with her head in the clouds and her nose in the news. She loves to explore all aspects of the world and life, from science, to the mystical and all things in between. Acting is another form her exploration takes- exploration of humanity and emotions.
Sarah Fünke
Sarah FünkeMaster of None
Just a regular girl trying to make her dream come true: Becoming a disney villain. If everything fails she’d settle with being a crazy pug lady.

Kinder sind kein Ersatz für Hunde.

Not as nearly equipped as most other human beings she knows but she always aims high. Yeah! Gets easily distracted. Girls just wanna have fun.

Lives most days as Snow White, singing to her pets all day. But once in a while she climbs on stage and her fairytaleworld becomes real for a moment. And as real as the stage may be, those are the days when she feels most enchanted. This year however, she rules this fairytale world from the director’s chair and is guiding the others to shine.
Alexandru Romanescu

In his free time he dreams on jazz during the day and on rock during the night.
Piyush Sharma
Piyush SharmaEngineer in Arts
Calculative, tolerant and perhaps empathetic. He loves Cricket, still dreams of playing at the highest level. He always needs music and makes sure that people around him listen to it too. He wants to do many things but he is good friends with laziness. A serene individual, he’s our perfect “Boy next door”.
