With less than two months until opening night, it’s time to get excited about the world premiere of Jail Baby! As a continuation of last week’s entry, we present to you two very talented actors who will be featured in the production. Read on about these local talents and then get your advance tickets today!
Daina Leitold has played the stages of MTC, WJT, SIR, Theatre Calgary, The Winnipeg Folk Festival, The Winnipeg and Saskatoon International Children’s Festivals, as well as countless Fringe and other independent productions. She has also performed in many productions for film and television. Daina is a proud founding member of The Talentless Lumps and not afraid to say she’s worked as a mime.
Megan McArton recently appeared in The Brink at Prairie Theatre Exchange. Prior to that she spent several years in sunny beautiful Thailand, teaching English and drama, and being a boarding mom at an International School. She is glad to be home and acting again, appearing as Mrs. Smithfield (among others) in the incredibly talented cast of Jail Baby this May!
Fundraising campaign update: Well folks, it’s the home stretch! Our fundraising campaign ends this weekend and we need your help to make our goal! Phone a friend and get them to commit too! Not only will you get some sweet swag when you donate, but you will also be contributing to a theatre project with strong community roots, which tackles increasingly relevant topics. There have been so many stories in the news recently about the justice system, and it is time that we hear the voices of those in the system! Help us realize these goals by showing support for Jail Baby today!
