Erin is a queer Albertan theatre performer and creator. She graduated from the University of Alberta’s BFA Acting program in 2018. She is delighted to play the role of Beth in Opera NUOVA’s Little Women. Most recently, Erin collaborated and performed in Live on TV!, an online live stream program as part of the 2021 Edmonton International Fringe Festival. For Play the Fool Festival 2018 & 2019, she created and performed pieces which embrace feminism (Lady Be Good and Minor Pains: Prenatal Piercing and other Pregnancy Prep). She is currently developing her solo clown show Stigma, Pistil and Style with director Jacqueline Russell, with plans to premiere it in Edmonton in 2022. Erin has performed in the Edmonton International Fringe Festival various times, with Theatre YES (Slight of Mind), and with Prime Stock Theatre (Twelfth Night & The Other Side of the Pole). In 2015, she graduated from Red Deer College’s Theatre Performance and Creation Program. She has Pochinko clown training through the Manitoulin Conservatory for Creation and Performance, has taken the National Voice Intensive, and participated in the Good Women Dance Collective Creative Incubator. Erin is grateful to be collaborating with both this team of artists and Opera NUOVA! In 2018, she had the wonderful experience of performing in Into the Woods through Opera NUOVA’s Six Week Emerging Artist Program. Take care and thank you for supporting local artists, Opera NUOVA, and the Edmonton Musical Theatre community!
