This time as a Stage Manager, I'm very happy to announce that I was part of the Vancouver Crew for "The Orbweaver", which was part of the International Vancouver Fringe Festival.
"She loves bright, lively things. He is Death's personal assistant. They can only be together when someone dies..."
"The Orbweaver is so good that having seen it makes me feel better about being alive. Seriously. It’s fantastic." - Colin Thomas
The Orbweaver is a dark and twisted black comedy/Mexican fairy-tale written by Paula Zelaya Cervantes that had its world premiere at the 2016 Vancouver Fringe Festival and I can tell you, there is no other production I would rather be part of for this year's fringe, than this fenomenal play!
It has been four years since the last time that I worked with the team of "Quimera Theatre Collective" and no better way to come back, than doing so as both an actor and sound designer for "Oddities & B-Sides"
"Quimera Theatre Collective present a collection of four plays strange in nature but bound by their humour and heart. Combining original works by our collective members and local writers with pieces by established playwrights, these Oddities & B-Sides make up what is sure to be a darkly humorous evening"
This year I had my first taste of working with the Italian Cultural Center in their rendition of the classic "Romeo and Juliet".
"Il Centro Players" took this original piece and created the bilingual version "Romeo E Giulietta", translated by Salvatore Quasimodo, directed by Nicole Riglietti.
I have the pleasure to announce that my most recent project for late March will be "The Laramie Project".
"The Laramie Project is a unique piece in theatre. It takes interviews from citizens of the town of Laramie Wyoming and pieces them together into a narrative. It has been called, Documentary Theatre. The interviews are about the death of a young gay man, Matthew Shepard."

Back in February of 2016, I had the pleasure to be part of K.I.A. Production's stage adaptation of "Juice" by Andy Garland, directed by Keltie Forsyth.
"As the government raids the offices of a 'Helth and Wellness' company accused of being a pyramid scheme, three of their top recruiters converge in an upscale hotel room. Faced with an oncoming hurricane of bad press and falling fortunes, a critical decision must be reached; honour their loyalties and stay on with a sinking ship, let go of their lucrative careers and attempt a normal life, or make the leap to the next 'multi-level marketing opportunity' to repeat the cycle again. As accusations fly and the minibar is emptied of all liquor, their nigh-impenetrable mindset of positive thinking is set to collide with brutal reality... and no-one will walk away unscathed.
Gova-life is the only life!"
