Jelena is excited to be back for another show! This is her fourth consecutive season acting with CCT. You may have seen her recently over at the Key City Theatre, tap dancing in Anything Goes! She loves to tell stories on stage and making the audience feel things.
This is Allison’s stage debut, and she is blessed to be experiencing it with such a spectacular cast and crew! She is grateful for their patience, guidance, and expertise. On the surface, this play resonates with the equity-seeking activist in her, but the true story comes from the personal and heart-felt relationships between the characters.

Making her second appearance on stage, Rhonda is very honoured to have been cast in this incredibly important play. Outside of Cranbrook theatre she enjoys spending time with her family, paddling, hiking, board games, crafting and volunteering.

have made participation in two productions and being a mom possible.
This is Anita’s third theatrical experience onstage and her second with The Cranbrook Community Theatre. You may have seen her as Miss Manners or singing with The Belles and Whistles at last summer’s Chautauqua. She thanks the director and all the cast and crew for their support and encouragement.
Gordon Sheridan is not new to producing--but he is new to producing plays. He took up the challenge when Director Melodie Hull asked him to produce. They had met in a chance encounter at the Summer Sounds concert series in Rotary Park.

Nathaniel has been a performer almost his entire life. Hailing from Nanaimo BC, Nate first got a taste for the theatre performing skits around to campfire with the members of Scouts Canada.
Eventually that led him to performing in Elementary school plays and with an after-school theatre company, Red Room Studio. He spent two years in Vancouver Island University’s theatre program.
