Lois Dawson – Stage Manager
Lois is thrilled to be back on Lkwungen territory to work with this delightful team. Most of the time, Lois lives on the land of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Səl̓ílwətaʔ, and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm Nations (Vancouver) where she works as a freelance stage manager. Her recent stage management credits include Skyborn: A Land Reclamation Odyssey (Savage Society), Ring of Fire: The Johnny Cash Story, The Occupation of Heather Rose (Theatre NorthWest), Mrs. Warren’s Profession, The Little Prince, Kim’s Convenience (Chemainus Theatre Festival), Redpatch (Arts Club/Citadel), and Les Belles Soeurs (Ruby Slippers Theatre). Fun fact: Lois was the stage manager for the speed skating venue during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. When Lois isn’t at a theatre hiding in a dark booth, you can find her in the kitchen baking fancy desserts or in the woods hunting for majestic waterfalls.
Pamela Stringer – Puppet Design
Performing as a ventriloquist from the age of 9, more recently Pamela was inspired to build her own puppets; some resembling her family members. Much to her family’s relief, Pam got busy building for others. She has created characters for a number of Kaleidoscope Theatre productions: The Secret Garden, The Little Prince, James and the Giant Peach, Peter Pan the Panto, Pippi Longstocking The Musical, Pinocchio, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, and (her favourite of all time) The House at Pooh Corner.
