Meet the Cast of Forum – Connor Meeker is Hero!

20140326-A-Funny-Thing-11Who do you play in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum? I play Hero, the young lover who falls for Philia, the virgin.

What is your background in theatre? This is my first show with the Walterdale! I am in my final year at Victoria School of the Arts, where I have been involved with many productions. Elsewhere, I have performed with the Citadel Theatre, Nextfest, St. Albert Children’s Theatre, and Promise Productions. Currently, I am also directing my first play- Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen, by Tennessee Williams.

What are you enjoying about this production? Working on Sondheim is always a wonderfully rewarding experience.

What do you think audiences should see the show? Forum is a hilarious show. It is packed with fantastic writing and music, and there isn’t anything else quite like it.
