PT Teens | Meet Camp Assistant Pippa!

Pippa Johnstone was one of PT's three apprentices this season and you may have seen her on stage in MEASURE FOR MEASURE. And you can see her this summer in her final apprentice project GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES. Pippa has been a camp leader for many years and has signed up to help Kerri teach our PT Teens Theatre School!

Pippa is a local actor in Vancouver who has been working at Pacific Theatre this past year since finishing her BFA at UBC. She was last seen in Measure for Measure with the Honest Fishmongers Theatre Co-op and Whose Life is it Anyways with RealWheels Theatre, and will be next in Gruesome Playground Injuriesin July on the Pacific Theatre stage. She is so thrilled to be a part of the Pacific Theatre summer camps this year and can’t wait to meet all the kids!

Did you go to summer camp?
Summer camp was always a huge part of my life – I went to overnight camp in Squamish from 8 years old, and worked at that same camp for many summers. I also spent many summers at Bard on the Beach Young Shakespeareans and Arts Umbrella theatre summer camps.

What is your favorite part about summer?
In Vancouver? How do I pick just one? Sunshine, beach days, biking and ice cream.

What is your favorite Theatre game?
Hmm…probably charades! Or really anything that involves guessing and teamwork.

What’s your favorite movie?
You ask tough questions! Maybe Forrest Gump? Or if we are keeping it classic…Lion King.

If you could be a kid again for one day, how would you spend your day?
Probably like this young lady…
