Prodigals 2.0

This week we will be having our first production meeting for Prodigals 2.0 (thank you Sean) which means two and half months until we open the official World Premiere at the beginning of May. So as we start the production process I thought I would bring you a few updates on our overall progress so far.

Update #1: Venue

Finally!! We are so excited to be able to officially announce that Prodigals will premiere in Studio T at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts at SFU Woodward's. This is a partnership that I have been working on since last June and we are absolutely thrilled to have formed this new partnership with Michael Boucher, Director of Cultural Programs & Partnerships, and the rest of the team at SFU Woodward's. We look forward to working with them and this amazing new venue in town.

Update #2: New Cast Member

We have a new Nina!! We want to welcome Kirsten Kilburn (who you last saw as Candy in our production of Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love) to the cast of Prodigals as the new Nina. Throughout the summer in discussions between Sean, Peter & myself one of the main points of revision and development for Prodigals 2.0 is the character of Nina. So, be prepared for a whole new, edgier (& slightly trashier) Nina in this production. The character of Nina is still in development along with many other script elements so we are all excited to see where Prodigals 2.0 will grow from here.

Update #3: Our publicity photo's

Ok, so this isn't so much an update as just something fun to share with guys. We had our publicity photo shoot last Thursday at David Cooper's studio and here are some of the shots chosen for the press:
