Meet the cast of All the Stage is a World!
Hello everyone! My name is Brandon, I'm a new Barefoot Player this year and I will be playing the role of Touchstone the Jester and Adam. I am so excited to meet you guys this year! I am also very excited to dance, sing and perform with the Barefoot Players this summer. I've loved theatre ever since my first performance of Peter Pan when I was 12. Other than theatre, I also love to spend my time playing music. I play the piano and guitar but I also love to learn anything new that I can get my hands on. One of my favourite songs to play is "Let It Go" from the movie Frozen! What is your favourite song? Come tell me yours!
Hi! My name's Julia and this is my first summer performing with the Barefoot Players. You'll see me as the wrestler Charles, the good Duke Senior who lives in the forest, and Audrey, the young goat herder. I couldn't be more excited to be able to share this show, All the Stage is a World with you! I love all parts of the theatre. I love to act, sing, and work behind the scenes to make the show happen (like costumes and props!) What's your favourite thing to do? When I'm not doing theatre, I love to read, spend time outside, and eat ice cream (my favourite kind is mint chocolate chip, what's yours?) When I'm a bit older, I hope to be a Drama teacher and continue to spread my love of the theatre, just like I'm doing with you! I hope you enjoy the show!
Hello! My name is Maddy. Remember me? Last summer I played Helena (the one with the RED bow) and Titania - the queen of the fairies. I've been in love with theatre ever since my first big role as Tinkerbell in a community production of Peter Pan. Now, I can't get enough of doing shows and I work on one whenever I can. Have you ever been in a show? I've done shows with my school, within my community, and I was even part of a 24 hour musical! When I'm not acting, I really like going for walks outside, playing with my 3 dogs, and eating s'mores pop tarts. Some of my favourite movies are Tangled and Spirited Away. I can't wait to see you all again this year when I play the lovesick Rosalind in All the Stage is a World!
Hello there! I'm Jillian and you might remember me from last summer when I played Lysander (in the blue hat) and Flute the actor. This year I can't wait to meet you as the oh-so reasonable Celia. My favourite part of theatre is the costumes. Do you like playing dress up? I love trying on fun clothes, and even sewing them from scratch. During the summer I enjoy taking walks by the lake and going to different festivals around town. A lot of my time is also spent playing my ukulele and singing my favourite songs. When I'm finished school next year, I am excited to keep making art with my friends and to travel to new and exciting places.
Hey there! I'm Jesse. I play the scoundrel Oliver and the melancholy Jaques in All the Stage Is a World. Did you like the play? Since coming to school here, I've loved working on plays. I even write some of my own, with birds and secret agents and Greek muses! When I'm not working on plays, I always have my nose stuck in a book, if I'm not tearing my way through a new video game. I also study film and I love to make movies. What movies do you like? Do you like cartoons? I love cartoons, like Steven Universe, The Legend of Korra, and Gravity Falls. When I'm done school, I hope I can keep making tons of fun art with cool people, just like I'm doing now!
Hi friends! My name's Hannah and you'll see me perform as the handsome Orlando. I have loved theatre since I could say "Shakespeare". Do you call Kingston "home"? My home is in on the other side of Canada in Victoria, where I love to hang out on the beach and hike in the mountains. I like to learn about Education, Drama and English. When the day is done and the stage curtains are drawn, I love to write poetry, bake cookies (ginger molasses are my favourite!) and play soccer. I am also a big fan of the Harry Potter series. When I'm older, I want to travel the world and teach kids, just like you! I can't wait to make my debut with The Barefoot Players in All the Stage is a World.
We all had a wonderful time performing for you this summer! Some of us may get to perform for you again next year...
