FemFest 2012: Staging Identity, our tenth annual festival, is quickly approaching with the September 15-22 dates less than two months away. We are excited to announce the cast for the world premiere of Empty by Hope McIntyre at FemFest. With 12 actors it is a huge production! In particular, we are pleased to be able to work with Sylvia Kuzyk. As Winnipeg’s beloved weather specialist on CTV, Sylvia was always a pleasure to watch. She participated in our So You Think You Can Act fundraiser last year and was a joy to work with. She will be playing against type in Empty so audiences will get to see her range as an actor.
Empty will also feature media personality and stand-up comic Aisha Alfa. Returning to the play after being part of the development process are several local favorites – Elena Anciro, Kevin Anderson, Kami Desilets, Murray Farnell and Alissa Watson. Plus we welcome Melanie Dean, Rob Haacke, Loc Lu, Jeff Reyes and Brittany Thiessen.
Following performances at FemFest this powerful play will tour to community groups and high schools. Click for tickets or more information on Empty.
