This summer I decided to attend as much theatre as possible. I wanted to reflect on how audiences responded to diverse titles, how directors used the space, how designers created a visual feast, and how the actors conveyed story in a way that connected with me. What impressed me in this quest was the vitality of theatre, the energy of the performers, the enthusiasm of the audience, and the magic created by the production crews. Theatre in Ontario is dynamic and alive.

10. To experience truly gorgeous music. The lyrics and score are stunning. The vocalists and musicians are outstanding. If I’m regularly getting goosebumps up both arms in rehearsals, then I know that the music will melt you with its dynamic, red velvet texture.
I’m thrilled to join the cast as a Dreamer in this winter’s production of The Secret Garden with Northumberland Players.
The last time I was onstage was in 2005 at Whitby Courthouse Theatre. It was Steve Martin’s Picasso at the Lapin Agile. I played Germaine, a sassy bar maid and one of Picasso’s love interests. Then my focus shifted to playwriting and directing.
