(some highlights from the last few years)
Never The Last – Delinquent Theatre, April 2019 // We realized our full vision for Never The Last in this production, and we were so delighted to share this piece with Vancouver audiences.
The Coyotes – Caravan Farm Theatre, Summer 2019 // For years I dreamed of performing at the Caravan, and in summer 2019 it became a reality. Bringing Peter Anderson’s weird and wonderful tale to life for audiences from all over the Okanagan was a true gift, and I’m so grateful for my summer at the farm.
Elbow Room Cafe: The Musical – Zee Zee Theatre, May 2016 // It was an honour to celebrate Vancouver’s queer community in this show about a real-life Vancouver institution, the Elbow Room Cafe. It was also an enormous pleasure to be part of the premiere of a new Canadian musical by my friends Dave Deveau and Anton Lipovetsky
Marine Life – Ruby Slippers Theatre, March 2019 // I love Rosa Laborde’s writing, and it was wonderful to get to be part of the Western Canada premiere of her beautiful play.
Heathers: The Musical – Chainsaw Collective, January 2016 // This camp classic movie became a really incredible contemporary musical, and I was so grateful to work with an incredible cast to do this fun show.
Stationary: A Recession-Era Musical – Talk is Free Theatre and The Cultch, April/May 2015 // We started from the bottom (meaning underrehearsed profit shares) and now we’re here (meaning full paid rehearsal time and professional presentations). It’s always amazing to do this show and we were proud that this was the tightest, darkest, best version of the show yet.
Saint Joan – Arts Club Theatre Company, November 2014 // I still can’t believe I got to be part of Kim Collier’s incredible vision and incredible cast, lead by the extraordinary Meg Roe.
Of Mice and Men – Hardline Productions, October 2013 // A dream project – working on this beautiful American classic with a gifted cast and crew. This is one of my favorite projects of all time.
The Glass Menagerie – Fire Escape Equity Co-Op, December 2014 // I’ve always had a love for Tennessee Williams, and the right moment and right people emerged to bring one of his classics to life.
The Story of You and Me – Delinquent Theatre at Hive: The New Bees 3 // I will never forget my experience going to see the last Hive – thank goodness for Resounding Scream, who took the idea and brought it to emerging artists to continue. Scott Button and I created The Story of You and Me, an intimate look at the life of a young married couple in the 1970s. Audiences were presented with a photo album and invited to select four photos that they wanted to know more about. We shot bourbon, cooked eggs, laughed and cried with our audiences (just 2 at a time) in this special little piece of theatre.
She Stoops To Conquer – Arts Club Theatre Company, November 2012 // She Stoops to Conquer was a dream come true – I’ve wanted to perform on the Stanley stage since I was wee, and it was a real honor to finally have that chance. I got to work with a long-time favorite director (Dean Paul Gibson) for the first time, and work with some truly remarkable actors.
Yoga Play – Gateway Theatre, February 2019 // We routinely laughed until we cried in rehearsal for this ridiculous and politically astute comedy.
East Van Panto: Wizard of Oz- Theatre Replacement and The Cultch, December 2018 // I have wanted to be in the East Van Panto since it started and it was a literal dream come true in every possible way.
Never The Last – Delinquent Theatre, May 2016 // I co-wrote this piece with Molly MacKinnon, developed it at the Banff Centre’s 2016 Playwrights Colony, and had a workshop production at the 2016 rEvolver Festival and Gabriola Theatre Festival. This piece is still in development, and we are excited to see what happens next.
Mr. Marmalade – Latchkey Co-Op, August 2014 // I’ve always wanted to work with my friend Chelsea Haberlin, and when we read Noah Haidle’s disturbing and hilarious script we knew it was the one.
