Studio Sessions: Theatre in a Pandemic
September 24th @ 11AM (EST)

Watch it LIVE on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Ghostlightcanada/posts/173553720973564

“Breaking barriers” is our theme for September as we discuss how we can break through the lockdown restrictions and still create the art we love.

This Studio Session we are talking to Rachel Forbes and Beck Lloyd about going back to school and teaching theatre… during a pandemic! How does that work?

Discussion points we want to explore:
-what kind of “classroom” are we returning to?
-rehearsal halls vs. zoom calls
-collaboration online vs in person
-learning curves: navigating change onstage/online

Have a question for our panel? Send them ahead of broadcast to: socialmedia@ghostlight.ca or post your questions below!

Or join us LIVE and chat with our guests during the broadcast.

Julius Caesar is onstage (and online!)

I have been working behind-the-scenes (well behind-the-screen) for Groundling Theatre and Crow’s Theatre’s adaptation of Julius Caesar as their social media specialist. I have been having a blast managing their Facebook and Twitter, where so many audience members and critics are able to interact with me and tell me how much they LOVE this production.

I still haven’t seen it outside of a rehearsal I was lucky enough to attend, so just you wait until I start raving about it too – I’m seeing it this week!

Want to see it? Catch it quick as it closes February 2nd and it’s selling out all the time: crowstheatre.com/caesar and if you need accessible tickets check out: https://www.crowstheatre.com/1920promo#JuliusCaesar

Toronto Fringe 2019: Checkpoint 300

I am so excited for Checkpoint 300 at Fringe this year – ok ok I’m bias, because not only am I working on the show as their marketing and publicist, but I also know Michelle Wise (Playwright and Director) and Geoff Mays from a long time ago from my actors life. Plus bringing to life such a heavy but important subject as xenophobia and religious conflict in the middle east – this show won an award for being such a great piece of theatre. I hope you can see it: https://fringetoronto.com/fringe/show/checkpoint-300

I took photos from their rehearsal for media use and I am happy to put my learning curve of photography to use: (and a little graphic design to add in the mix!)

The Producer’s Hat

The Producer’s Hat

A few years ago I started working with Eldritch Theatre and it was magical – no really there was actual magic! The creatives in Eldritch Theatre are pretty stellar and even though I’m the Marketing Monster and Producer, I’m still made to feel a part of the creative team. 

This year we have a smash hit magic/horror/retro-sci-fi/sexcapade/puppet space adventure! And I took the set stills for marketing (eep!) and I made the opening credits, inspired by the 1930’s Flash gordon serials:

There have been great reviews, great fan feedback, and the houses are always bursting with laughter (and people! We keep selling out!) So as a Producer this is making my heart happy, and as a theatre creator it’s making my heart explode because we need more risk taking, more ridiculous, more PUPPETS in our lives.

I hope you get to see it – and because I’m the Producer I’m going to share a secret with you… “Comic Horror” is the discount code for $20 anytime tickets and there is always PWYC Sundays that you can book ahead!

Happy intergalactic space travels!

 

Stories Like Crazy presents: 2 one-woman shows!

Stories Like Crazy presents: 2 one-woman shows!

Once upon a time, Lori Lane Murphy met me online… I was stoked to be a part of her All In Our Heads storytelling event at The Paddock a while ago, and wouldn’t you know it – Lori was even cooler in person. I even met her husband Paul who I immediately wanted to be his sister! 

Fastforward past coffee chats and more storytelling events to when Lori brings this great idea of a mental health podcast that we should make together. Of course I am game! We create Stories Like Crazy We have a few episodes ready to drop for #MHW17 Mental Health Week May 1-7, but we don’t stop there…

Horror Puppet Magic Time!

Great news! I have a new adventure and it includes magic, horror, and puppets! Check out the upcoming show from Eldritch Theatre:

I am now their Marketing Monster and I am in LOVE with what I get to do for them. You know I’m addicted to social media right? And I’m polishing my Producer hat to help Brimstone McReedy come to be this Halloween. I really hope you can make it.

How did this come to be? I actually went to see Eric Woolfe’s show Doc Wuthergloom last year for Halloween (my partner Jason and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Halloween) and we had such a great time that we talked about it for days. So I had to email the theatre because this doesn’t happen everyday! The Artistic Director (Eric) was very humbled by our reviews and when I said I would be delighted to help with social media for the company in the future – guess what? 8 months later he asked me to do just that 🙂

So please give them a follow on Twitter: @EldritchTheatre

And let me know if the revamped website makes sense (because I revamped it! Eep!)

And here is their super secret Facebook Group that gets all the news and discounted tickets first:
Cabal of Horror

And do you want to get letters from Doctor Wuthergloom. the twisted Victorian freak? Ya you do: subscribe here: Cabal of Horror Mailing List

I hope to see you at the Halloween show!
