Melinda Schneider is a huge fan of the legendary Doris Day. She's returning to the stage for a tribute to this legend of stage, screen and song who died earlier this year, aged 97. A Farewell To Doris will be staged at Arts Centre Melbourne on 13 September 2019.

In 2010, Melinda released the acclaimed tribute album Melinda Does Doris A Tribute To Doris Day, following this she wrote an original theatre show, Doris Day So Much More Than The Girl Next Door with David Mitchell. After this successful show, she returned with a concert production, Melinda Does Doris: A Tribute to Doris Day and in 2016, she released a second Doris album, Melinda Does Doris Again The Movie Songs.

Before Doris Day So Much More Than The Girl Next Door was staged, Melinda sent Doris the script: "I wanted to make sure she was happy with the way we had portrayed her, and she came back giving me the thumbs up, which made me very happy."
