What is your background in theatre? At Walterdale? I went the MacEwan University for theatre production for 2 years and worked with Mile Zero Dance on their show Anything Goes A Dance in 17 Parts. This is my first show with Walterdale.
What brought you out for this production? As I was chatting with Rachel (the other props master for this show) over coffee she invited me to the first production meeting where I introduced myself and the rest is history
What do you think audiences will take away from this production? Audiences should take away a sense of astonishment for the subject matter. The cultural climate of this show mirrors that of today eerily. I’m certain many people will see the parallels.
Shatter deals with a major event in Canadian history that Canadians today might not know too much about. Are there any other major events in Canadian history that you feel we should know more about that we do? Until I joined onto this show I didn’t know of this event either so it’s been very interesting and exciting learning about the times as we go into this more. There is a lot of Canadian history that gets glossed over and that we forget as we get out of school, an event that I have been attracted recently is the creation and spread of the Canadian Pacific Railway until 1885.
