Life Upon The Wicked Stage

I am very #grateful and #blessed to have booked a few commercials this past year. It gave me a cushion to be able to take some time off my joe-jobs so I could dedicate my nights to theatre – aka The Wicked Stage
I auditioned for and got parts in not one but two short theatre festivals which are happening this month. March 16-18 I’ll be in a comedic play as part of the Brave New Play Rites Festival at Studio 1398 on Granville Island. Then the following week, March 21-24, I’ll be in a more dramatic piece in the Pull Festival at Little Mountain. I’m so, so excited to be a part of these shows. I had a blast at The Chair Series and it reminded me of how much I love being on stage playing a character. So go get your tickets before they sell out!

Brave New Play Rites
Students from UBC’s creative writing program (MFA and BFA) have written short plays and I get to act in one of them. I’m playing Jane, a housewife in the 1960s, in a play called The Blank Page which is about gender roles and comic books.
It’s in Program 4.

Don’t Sleep On This Show!

Teen Angst Endorcement Tweet Chelsea Rooney

A few months ago, local author and all around delightful woman, Chelsea Rooney wrote this lovely tweet/ endorsement of Teen Angst Night. It warmed my heart to have her share her thoughts and feelings about a show I adore with all my soul – a show that will not die, because it’s just so much fun and people keep showing up for it.

The next Teen Angst Night tomorrow! Wednesday, March 14 at the Cottage Bistro. Show starts promptly at 8 PM and will finish before 10 PM. Tickets are $10 at the door – partial proceeds go to charity.

Check out the Facebook event and see if your friends are going.

Don’t sleep on it anymore!

The Chair Series 2

The Chair Series 3

The Chair Series 4

The Chair Series 1

I had such a great time performing at The Chair Series last Saturday. I can’t wait to do this show again!

Thanks to John McGie for writing such fun monologues.

Thank you to Stacy Taylor Photography for capturing these moments of my rubber face in action.

What is “The Chair”?

It sounds ominous doesn’t it? THE. CHAIR.

It’s pretty simple. There are 8 actors on stage and one chair. The actors take turns sharing a monologue which was written for them by John McGie. There are no props and no costumes. It’s bare bones theatre.

John asked the actors to give him one word and he would write a monologue inspired by that word and the very little (or a lot, as the case may be) he knew about us.

My words were Anticipation and Connection. I have two comedic pieces I’m very excited to share with you. And check out all the other talented actors I get to do a show with! (full bios on the ticket site and facebook event).

Get your tickets soon this place has a limited capacity.
