What is your background in theatre? At Walterdale?
In 2012 I was cast in the Cradle to the Stage production of The Carrying by Jennifer Roberts, which was a great introduction to the Walterdale community.
Outside of Walterdale some credits include:
Defiance Theatre (Founder/Artistic Director)
Azimuth Theatre (Associate Artistic Producer)
Catalyst Theatre (Assistant to Jonathan Christenson, Nevermore)
Theatre Network (Punk Outreach Coordinator, Hard Core Logo: Live!)
Cowardly Kiss Theatre (actor in She Came From Planet X!, (Real) Gone (Girl), The Maids),
Poiema Productions (Director/Dramaturg, Middleton).
I am also a proud graduate of the Keyano College Visual & Performing Arts Theatre program in Fort McMurray.
Favorite Vampire movie/play other than this one, and why? I was a pretty big fan of the Anne Rice novels growing up, so I was always interested in the film adaptations of those books. Some great, some terrible!
Favorite Halloween Costume and why? I went to school as Elvira when I was about seven years old. At least in my head I looked like Elvira – in hindsight it was just a shiny black shirt of my mom’s with a white turtleneck underneath, a much-too-big black wig, and lots of costume jewelry and makeup. No one got it. I was too ahead of my time I guess!
What are you most looking forward to about this production? Having all of the emotional elements finally blend with the technical ones, and the final addition of an audience. So excited to share this with people!
