excerpt from Mungojerrie & Rumpleteazer by T.S. Elliot
Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer have a wonderful way of working together And some of the time you would say it was luck And some of the time you would say it was weather We go through the house like a hurricane And no sober person could take his oath Was it Mungojerrie or Rumpelteazer? Or could you have sworn that it mightn’t be both?
Then family will say: “Now which was which cat? It was Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer!” And there’s nothing at all to be done about that!
For all students who audition and are accepted into the Summer StudioWorks program, but do NOT receive a bursary, a discounted rate will be offered ($250.00) which will cover the entire program. WST’s StudioWorks program also runs year-round (September thru May) in addition to the summer session. For more information on these programs, please visit winnipegstudiotheatre.com

Gentlemen’s Guide to Love & Murder
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….
