Living History Testimonials
“I found Angela to be very professional. Her background in working with historically based genres was evident in the insight she brought to the project.The scripts she developed were well written and performed. the audience responded well and it helped us convey the heritage of Port Moody’s Ioco townsite in a new and interesting way.” Rebecca Clarke, Program & Events Coordinator, Port Mood Station Museum, Port Moody B.C.
“Knowing Angela’s work in historical theatre, I contacted her in regards to a new event that was planned called Voices of the Fraser, which was to be a historical walk-through theatre program focusing on the history of Deas Island Park. Angela showed great enthusiasm and support for the project and came on board as the writer and director. She wrote the scripts, prepared the actors. The stories and songs crafted by Angela blended historical fact with humour, drama, conflict, singing and dancing in a way that made the program both highly entertaining and educational. I can sincerely say that it would not have been possible to realize the project without Angela’s enthusiasm, expertise and support. Her background in historical theatre as well as her intimate knowledge of the performing arts added depth and character to the event, but it was her incredible energy and dedication that truly made the project a success.” Stephania Buonocore, Former Special Events coordinator, Metro Vancouver B.C.
