More about Lauren
You might recognize her from involvement with a number of theatres in our city. A true modern thespian, Lauren juggles work in multiple area of the theatre. Besides her social media savey, she has acted with La Troupe du Jour (yes, in French), Sum Theatre, the Tightrope Collective at The Refinery, and has toured the province with Wide Open Children’s Theatre.
She left us for a couple of years to study theatre and musical theatre in Edmonton where she discovered a flair and affinity for tap dancing. Since returning, she has produced a number of cabarets around town, and in January 2016 will be producing a new show at The Refinery. When not on stage or producing she stays involved with the front-of-house team at Persephone, volunteering at La Troupe du Jour and also working in various capacities with Embrace Theatre.
In June, Lauren won a trip to Toronto to have dinner with Tom Mulcair.
She comments on the conversation: “I didn't think that as a recent NDP convert who is 22 and a woman, that my political perspective would be given the weight that it was in the conversation. I was so impressed by him and his willingness to learn from what others around him were offering.” Read more about her evening on her blog.
