Drum roll please! Today, we are pleased to present in full detail the first of our seven celebrity participants in our 3rd annual So You Think You Can Act fundraising event. This year’s theme is The Revolution Starts Now and will feature entertaining scenes by local, national, and international playwrights. Alison Gillmor of the Winnipeg Free Press and CBC Radio will star as Deb in The Girl Who Loved Castro by Montreal playwright, Colleen Curran. Sound familair? The Girl Who Loved Castro was featured as one of our shorts in FemFest 2013!

Deb is sipping a Mojito in a small cantina in Havana, Cuba boasting about her admiration for Fidel Castro. What will Maria, the fed-up cantina keeper, do when she’s finally had enough?
