SYTYCA presents: Ron Paley

SYTYCA 2012 bannerSome of the celebrities participating in our 2nd annual So You Think You Can Act fundraiser are no strangers to performing in front of an audience! Just take veteran musician Ron Paley as an example! We are excited to see Ron on the stage in a new light, and we know you will be too! Even better Ron will be performing a scene from local playwright Rick Chafe’s hit play The Secret Mask, which premiered at PTE last year and has since gone on to productions in Ottawa and Vancouver. Local actor Tyhr Trubiak will join Ron on stage as a son trying to help the father who abandoned him recover from a stroke. All of this year’s scenes are about ‘Family Ties’ and will offer some familiar exploration of family dysfunction.
