Reviews

Jane Noble is a total pro - she brings wit, intelligence and a fierce work ethic to the table again and again. Jane is a natural comedienne: she has great timing and perfect instincts matched with wonderful creativity and inventiveness. Jane is simply one of my favourite actors to work with and a force on stage.

I loved this project. It was a fascinating process of creating 4 original scripts from scratch for the fictional Radio Maillardville CFMA radio station. We researched real characters, true stories and current events of the 30s and 40s then wove them into a compelling radio piece, complete with sound effects and jingles. We cut a CD and performed the first live show in the Mackin House Museum. This CD is now used as the basis of an enrichment program for local elementary students.
