A Few Good Men-by A. Sorkin. I am excited to be involved with Keyano Theatre this fall, designing costume for their first show of the season.
I have been a professional scenic and costume designer for more than a decade. The Theatre has been a passion all my life. Though I have been a performer, my true love is the creation of the visual experience through design. I tend towards the abstract sculptural, and look to each new project as a chance to encounter the architecture as a character.
I was lucky this season to create set and costume for this charming production by director Sharon Peat. I can now say I have designed farm animals! Spiders and geese and pigs...oh my!
Lisa Doolittle and her cast created this touching, and entertaining movement piece which explored the triumphs and challenges of people with special needs in our community.
