Morris Ertman- Director
"This play is for our time. We're so fragmented and defensive that we've lost sight of one another. I think the quote from a Sting song sums up my feeling about the play: 'I hope the Russians (Christians, Secularists) love their children too.'"
Jillian White - Lighting Designer
"Creating 'natural' light is one of my favourite things to do in theatre, second only to magic. People don't realise how much variation there is in quality and colour of 'white' light. I'm very excited for the setting of this show - the deck of a family cabin in the BC wilderness - and what I can do with it."
Brian Ball - Set Designer
This is Brian's first design for our unique space, and we're so happy to have him on this project!
Jessica Oostergo - Costume Designer
Jessica is excited that this show "explores the positive and negative effects of religion on different types of people."
Rick Colhoun - Sound Designer
Rick is a current season apprentice, and is adding directing to his list of skills, along with his usual sound design.
Props Master - Ariel Slack
For this show, Ariel's been hard at work creating stage-friendly versions of fancy wine, eggplant pizza, healthy green smoothies, and more!
Samantha Pawluik - Stage Manager
As Stage Manager, Samantha has been working tirelessly since before rehearsals began, steering the whole process from inside the rehearsal hall.
Kira Fondse - Assistant Stage Manager
"[JESUS FREAK] closely reflects the families and/or situations of many of my friends. It also brings up discussions and asks questions that are current, relevant, and need to be addressed, rather than brushing them under the table. I hope this play will foster closer relationships between people of different opinions through the encouragement of conversation . . . . People begin to heal when others start to listen."
