Eclipse Theatre Commission – ‘TIL THEN

Opera on the Avalon Workshop

Back for a time in the Bight!

Yet again, I feel so lucky to be working at a time like this. I’m back for the summer in Trinity Newfoundland with Rising Tide Theatre, surrounded by a community and natural beauty that I love. I’ll be performing in four shows in rep this summer, including the beautiful “West Moon” by Al Pittman, which does a lovely job of addressing issues around resettlement. Are you around Newfoundland for the summer? It’d be great to see you. Visit Rising Tide for more info!
