“Spotlight on Review” showcases Baggage

A local web-tv entertainment site did an interview with the entire cast of “Baggage”.  It was definitely an unusual experience for the entire company.  Take a look!


“Baggage” All Packed Up

Now that the Fringe festival has finished, and the cast and crew of Baggage has gone onto other things, I just wanted to give a heartfelt thanks to our loyal audiences for coming out to support us. We had a successful run, and look forward to everyone’s next project.

There are talks of remounting the show, so stay tuned for more details.

In other news, the Ontario Public Service Pride Network (my corporate pride network) featured a review of Baggage in their recent newsletter. I think it’s great that my workplace is so supportive and encouraging of our members like this. If only other employers would be this queer-positive.

Mention in Xtra!

This past week a special mention of the piece “Touch”, was made in Xtra! Magazine (a LGBT weekly newspaper based in Toronto). “Touch” is just one of the five amazing plays that comprise “Baggage”. Click below to read the article.

Production Stills are up!

Rehearsals for such a large company is practically a nightmare to schedule, but we still manage to get by. With a company of 27 people (yeah we’re atypical that way), I was amazed to get the turnout that I did for our production stills shoot.

Anyway, here they are. Enjoy!

More photos (and maybe promo video) to come! Oh and if you’re wondering who the models were for our initial flyer design… I’ve been sworn to secrecy. 😀


I’m very excited to present our initial flyer run as designed by the talented Leon Aureus, with creative assistance from myself (photography) and Christine Mangosing (photo post processing). It seems that everyone in the company, in true grassroots style, wears multiple hats… just maybe not so many hats in this photo… ahem.
