I am thrilled to announce that I will be performing in Dry Cold’s production of Gentlemen’s Guide to Love & Murder from June 21-June 26th at MTYP. Rehearsals are currently underway and it is an absolute dream to be back in the studio working alongside a stellar cast and Artistic Team including: Erin McGrath (Director) and Rachel Cameron “the singing pianist” as Music Director.
A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is a murderous romp filled with unforgettable music, non-stop laughs and a scene-stealing role for one actor playing all eight of the doomed heirs who meet their ends in the most creative and side-splitting ways. When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out that he’s eighth in line for an earldom in the lofty D’Ysquith family, he figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a far more ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn’t the only thing on Monty’s mind….

On September 25th, I had the great privilege of creating the 1/2 time show for the Bisons’ Home Opener at IG Field. Featuring Jeremy Koz and his band – Deep Dark Cave, a cast of over 100 performers breakdanced, tumbled and strutted their stuff for an enthusiastic crowd. Many thx to my partner in crime – Natalie Sluis, the Blue Bomber Cheer Squad, Monica Goermann’s Momentum gymnasts and my terrific squad of dance performers. And of course a BIG SHOUT-OUT to U of M’s Stacy Wyatt for giving me the opportunity to make it all happen!!

I’m extremely excited to be working as choreographer on Ace Entertainment’s production of Time Cut, the latest in our province’s successful run of horror flicks. My experience as “Flashmob Queen of Manitoba” scored me the role and the opportunity to work with 11 of Manitoba’s finest dancers. We’re all set to bring this scene to life in July!

Our StudioWorks Sr. Academy has been working diligently since September on the incredible Joe Iconis/Joe Tracz musical – Be More Chill. This project has truly been a labour of love. We have had to navigate a myriad of obstacles and life events which has brought our company of emerging artists even closer together. I am so proud of what we have accomplished thus far, not only with our production, but with the generous and loving spirits which have emerged en masse. Our hearts and spirits are still reeling at the loss of one of our dear cast members, Amélie Barreto-Labossière but we are ‘doing her proud” with the virtual production we are about to share with everyone on June 24th!
