After a pants week, so nice to have an afternoon celebrating with an old friend (who got me these beautiful tulips) and to surprise @charliemarybate @thewatermilltheatre yesterday evening, despite the sideways snow! Great show - hope press night goes well! #oldfriends#theatresaturday#restorationcomedy
The Way of the World directed by Scott Ellis was such a fantastic experience! What a comedy! And these costumes killed it! It was fun to live in the 1700s for some time and being a fop made my experience more enjoyable to help tell the story. Shout out to the make up artists and hair stylists to make us feel at ease in the dressing room! Here’s Petulant, he’s very flamboyant and feisty! #restorationcomedy#williamcongreve#actorslife#mfafamily
There are exactly 5 performances left of The Beaux Stratagem and I am so excited to be done because that means a break!!! But come see the show! There’s love, witty banter and sword fighting! 8pm Tuesday through Saturday at the John Mitchell building at the UofS. #beauxstratagem#greystonetheatre#restorationcomedy#usaskcreativity
Last night our patrons got an exclusive look behind the scenes at the making of #bellesstratagem with our Up Close event. They got to sit in on a rehearsal, have a Q&A with the cast and creative team, and then a drink and mingle.

I am so delighted to announce that I will be playing Florinda in the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University’s production of The Rover by Aphra Behn directed by Dawn Monique Williams! If you are available to come to Ashland and see it March 1-11 it would mean the world to me! Very excited to start this adventure! #Rover#therover#feminism#feminist#metoo#restorationcomedy @ocaatsou

It's Opening Night of our big little show A Country Wife. It's been a treat to work with the NIDA Costume and Design students and the Second Year Acting students on this funny, chaotic and rather glamorous production. Chookas Everyone for a brilliant show tonight. Especially to our hardworking costume crew Steph and Siobhan - I want you guys on my team forever 😍😘#restorationcomedy#nida#costumelife#costumecrew
