I am a multi award-winning director, actor and the co-founder/Artistic Director of one of Vancouver’s most enduring independent theatre companies Ruby Slippers Theatre. We have, for twenty-one years now, produced and created smart social satire that is infectiously entertaining and relevant. We have a national tour coming up of our latest production A Beautiful View, and over fifty Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards to our credit.
Without a comprehensive music and theatre program at my junior and senior highschools, there is no question that I would have spent those formative years doing things self-destructive and ultimately socially destructive.
Learning to become a positive, contributing and active member of society starts as a child and is fostered by our education system. An education without a strong arts component is no education at all.
