MAGIC MADELEINES SYNOPSIS

“Life is only interesting when the dust of reality is sprinkled with magic.” – Marcel Proust

In this modern fairy tale, only an old lady and her secret recipe for magic madeleine cookies can save the city’s ravine and its ancient secret from the Big Bad Wolf condo builder and the grifting duo he sends to swindle her.

To fulfill a promise she made to her brother before he died, 80-year old Vivienne Bordeaux (Pam Hyatt) is on a quest to find and preserve the secret of an ancient Indigenous burial site they discovered as children.

When greedy real estate mogul, Simon LeLoup (Richard Zeppieri) sends two grifters (Sera-Lys McArthur and Alex Cruz) to trick Vivienne into selling the land, Vivienne unleashes her secret weapon — magic madeleine cookies that transform those who eat them into their truest selves.

Student Work | Hosanna @ Red Sandcastle Theatre

Three years ago Adam Bonney and Randy E Galsim wanted to work together on a scene for my class. I suggested ‘Hosanna’ by Michel Tremblay. I’m so happy to share the news that they have kept working on the play and are mounting it at the Red Sandcastle Theatre. The play will run from October 17-21.

These days, working in a studio class on the acting process, specific texts and roles, is just the kind of environment that can foster productions. I’m so proud to that this project has evolved from work that originated in my class.
