Back on stage

 It has been almost a decade since I performed as Ebenezer Scrooge in the Keyano Theatre Company production of A Christmas Carol . I directed a production of The Odd Couple after that and then focused on my art career.  As we settled into community life in Okotoks, I knew that I would eventually try out for a Dewdney Players show. When I saw that they were doing Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night , it was a sign - to me - that the time had come. We had just returned from our vacation in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and I was in no shape to attend the in-person auditions, so I asked director Katie Fournell if she would accept a video auction. She graciously obliged and a few days later offered me the role of Maria in a gender reversed casting of the Bard’s classic comedy. We started rehearsals in the dead of winter out at Dewdney’s rehearsal hall in Aldersyde, just a few minutes south of Okotoks. I was a stranger among many who clearly had connections to each other. We were still a few weeks
