I recently had the pleasure to work as assistant production manager of one of the most unique theatre experiences Vancouver has to offer. Hard Times Hit Parade played from March 4-19, and sold out last 7 shows, having to turn nearly one hundred people away on the last Sunday matinee! We were featured in Vancouver's major newspapers, and more importantly, created an event unlike anything you've ever seen...
Inspired by the dance marathons of the 1930s, the show incorporated big swing dance numbers, circus arts, juggling, short films, soundscape, shadow puppetry and a spectacular live band Maria in the Shower.
I operated as a set carpenter, technician, and performed pre-show comedy as a crass New York janitor.
