All My Day Jobs (& Solo Journeys)

I am the sound designer for All My Day Jobs... See you there!

Broad Theatrics Presents...

The Appetizer: SOLO JOURNEYS

A satire of solo shows and feminist theatre festivals. Presented as a staged reading. No tech, lots of laughs. Starring six fabulous actresses: Andree Karas, Edwina Cheer, Naomi Dayneswood, Tosha Doiron, Miranda Duffy, Jenna Hastings.


The Main Course: ALL MY DAY JOBS

A comedy about misery - and a solo show - performed by Kirsten Van Rizen.

ALL MY DAY JOBS is the story of a struggling actress and her multiple attempts to fake it in the real world. From the mundane (waitress, temp, telemarketer) to the bizarre (proctor, carny, dancing cocktail waitress??) she suffers the indignities of dozens of day jobs.
Just how long can she grin and bear it?

With direction from Ian Ferguson and sound design by Alexander Brendan Ferguson.

CBC, TC, and Monday dig Animal Farm

Good reviews of Animal Farm from the Times Colonist, CBC, and Monday Magazine...

 

 

TC: www.pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/viewer.aspx

CBC: www.vicreviews.blogspot.com

Monday Magazine: www.mondaymag.com (under "arts" section)

"There is music and clever sound and cool lighting effects, all of which draw the audience in quite effectively."
- Monica Prendergast, Ph.D - CBC Radio - Victoria, BC

"Adapted for the stage by Vancouver humourist and award-winning playwright Ian Ferguson, the new Animal Farm is clever, fast paced, and retains the same strong message as the original version. Ferguson, who also directed the play, has done a solid job of tempering that message into an accessible package, through the use of witty banter, asides and quick physical comedy."
- Steve Carey - Times Colonist - Victoria, BC

"Watching Animal Farm is a rare opportunity to see three inspiring performances in a unique adaptation of Orwell’s classic. Come for the puppets. Stay for the revolution."
- Sarah Gignac, Monday Magazine - Victoria, BC
