New Musical: On the Radio!

Been having another great summer here in Trinity, some highlights being performing again as the Nobleman in Pamela Morgan’s Folk/Opera “The Nobleman’s Wedding” (villains are fun!) and spending time with all the wonderful people I’ve met over my four years working out here.

This piece takes place at a radio station in St. John’s Newfoundland from 1941- […]

Playwright’s Residency

The residency has included spending time in Orangeville (they gave me an office and everything!) as well as seeing a lot of theatre and readings, and quite a few breakfasts with Artistic Director David Nairn. This show is something new for me, with far more songs as compared to dialogue than I’m used to. It also means there’s a lot of music, so there’s a lot of experimenting with different ways to move the story along through song. Thanks to the OAC for […]
