Meet Audrey Alford & A Real Boy

Name: Audrey Alford

What is your current project? A Real Boy by Stephen Kaplan

Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?

59E59 is the perfect fit for this intimate piece. We have turned Theatre C into a Kindergarten classroom with the audience up close and personal in alley seating. Watching it from different angles really does change the way you understand a character, as well as the puppets.

What’s next for you?

I’m a member of the SDC Observership Class so hopefully I will be working under an established director very soon. Otherwise, I’ll continue to keep my eye out for projects that fit with my personal mission.

What is the name of the last show you saw?

Waitress

Any advice for your peers?

Create a space where everyone is able to fail. Some of the best moments come from someone in the room trying something zany.

Meet Katie Braden & A Real Boy

Name: Katie Braden

What is your current project? A Real Boy by Stephen Kaplan

Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?

59E59 Street Theaters; this is an amazing fit for our show, because they present such innovative, thought-provoking work from all over the world! I’m thrilled that we’re included in this season!

What’s next for you?

I’m taking classes for a graduate degree, so I start my next course 3 days after closing!

What is the name of the last show you saw?

A Brimful of Asha, part of the Soulpepper festival at The Signaure Theatre

Any advice for your peers?

I’ve found that I’m a better actor when I have balance in my life of work, fun, and family. I think it’s important to find the right ratio on an individual level, so don’t feel like you have to fit into someone else’s timeline or expectations. There are lots of ways to be happy in the theatre, and it may not be the way you expect!
