FALL 2018

This fall, Andrew appeared as The Padre in the Drayton Entertainment production of ​​​​​​Man of La Mancha. The beloved show tells the story of Alsonso Quijana, the aging country squire whose madness leads him to transform into Don Quixote, a fearless, misguided knight from centuries ago.  By turns hilarious and poignant, the show starred Drayton Artistic Director Alex Mustakas in the title role, and was directed by David Hogan with musical direction by Konrad Pluta.

SUMMER 2018

This summer, Andrew appeared in ​​Out of Order at Drayton 
Entertainment.  The farce, from the pen of Ray Cooney, focuses on the ridiculous comings and goings over the course of one night at London's Westminster Hotel.  In the play, Andrew plays an overactive and oddly mischeivous dead body, whose discovery sets into motion a series of lies and deceptions which spin hilariously out of control. Directed by Sara-Jeanne Hosie, the production ran all summer to raucus crowds at three of Drayton's Ontario theatres. 

SPRING 2018

This spring, Andrew appeared in two seperate projects, each focused on new Canadian musicals.

In the first, Andrew sung roles in three different short
musicals by Britta Johnson & Sara Farb, Kevin Wong &
Julie Tepperman and Bryce Kulak & Erin Sheilds.
The series, entitled Reframed, was inspired by three
different works on display at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
It was produced by the Musical Stage Company, and recorded for The PlayMe Podcast, which spotlights new works of Canadian theatre. Directed by Robert McQueen with musical direction by Tara Litvak, you can find the recordings at  playmepodcast.com

In June, Andrew appeared as Timothy in the final workshop of Dr. Silver: A Celebration of Life, by Britta and Anika Johnson.  The workshop was produced by Outside the March and Musical Stage, and presented for a series of nights as a part of Toronto's Luminato Festival. The immersive show, directed by Mitchell Cushman with musical direction by Liz Baird, is a real-time funeral service for the leader of "The Silver Singers", a mysetrious cult, interspered with flashbacks that shed light on the family at the heart of this rigid secret society. 




​MARCH/APRIL 2018

This spring, Andrew will be seen in the Drayton Entertainment production of the 5 time Tony-winning hit The Drowsy Chaperone.  The hilarious "musical within a comedy" is a smart, loving tribute to the jazz-era shows of the 1920's. Andrew will appear as Aldolpho, the scenery-chewing Latin lothario who wreaks havoc on the wedding at the heart of the show's rollicking story. 
The Drowsy Chaperone is directed by Max Reimer, with choreography by Robin Calvert and musical direction by Jeannie Wyse, and runs from March 28th to April 15th at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse.  For tickets and information, visit  https://www.draytonentertainment.com/drowsy-chaperone-stjacobs
