re:union | meet the cast

Introducing the cast of RE:UNION!  Instead of the usual headshot and bio, we decided to give you something a little different.  Where available we've got a photo of the actor, the historical character they're playing, and then some past productions you may have seen them in at PT.

Evan Frayne as Norman Morrison

Evan is a relative newcomer to the PT scene, but he's certainly made a splash.  As an apprentice last year he performed in JESUS HOPPED THE 'A' TRAIN and THE GREAT DIVORCE before directing his own adaptation of ROMEO AND JULIET.  Oh, and he won the Jessie Award for Most Promising Newcomer.  Here's a few photos that might help jog your memory about Evan:

Alexa Devine as Emily Cooper

Alexa's first show with PT was a little number called GRACE in 2007, a role that got her a Jessie Award nomination.  Since then she performed on our stage in the hit staged reading of THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT and has been awful busy co-running Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre.

Andrew Wheeler as Robert McNamara

Now here's a treat!  This is Andrew's first time on the Pacific Theatre stage.  Not that he's a newcomer to the Vancouver theatre scene, of course.  Andrew was in AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY at The Arts Club last year and DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS at The Vancouver Playhouse, among many many other local productions.  Trust us, you've seen this guy around, if not on stage then on screen one of the many film and TV shows shot in Vancouver. (BEST IN SHOW, anyone?)
