Alex is ready to get back to scripted theatre after a long five year deep delve in the dangerously delightful world that is Improv. Alex is excited that the words have already been written for him and that they are so moving and beautiful. If you can’t get enough of him in this, keep an eye out for him in his next season of Bullskit. Thanks for coming out.

CAT is where Kirstin first began acting. Her first show was Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, also directed by Craig Scott. She is happy to be cast in another show under Craig’s direction. Her other credits with CAT include Unnecessary Farce and Some Girl(s). She is also in the upcoming dinner theater production of Real Estate, which she hopes you will also go and see. Thank you for supporting the arts in Central Alberta.

Reina is enjoying her debut as Stage Manager for CAT's Dinner Theatre. She got started in theatre through her interest in costumes. She got involved with production and stage managing roles in "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" during CAT's 2017 season. She works full time as a Registered Nurse but has theatre and Kanzashi (handmade folded fabric flowers) as her creative vent. Reina would like to thank CAT for all the learning opportunities she’s had in the past year.

Rebecca welcomes you and is very excited you’re all here. You may recognize her from other CAT productions such as The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Some Girl(s). Much like her character, Babe, Rebecca is the youngest child in her family, and cannot play the saxophone (but dang it, she will try!) Rebecca hopes you enjoy watching the play, and asks that you always remember that you are loved, the bad day will pass, and you’re not so all alone.
