Aidan Spila

Theatre FUN-damentals

Born and raised in Edmonton, Aidan has been a dedicated theatre artist since his first drama class in 2012. Now having finished his studies at MacEwan, all he wants to do is make more theatre - and hosting a summer camp is a great way to make that happen.

Aidan has been a part of many shows and musicals including Legally Blonde, The Crucible, Pippin, Spring Awakening, Follies, Blue Stockings, RENT, and many more.

Jenn Townsend

The Ticking Time Bomb, It's ALIIIVE!!!

Driven by an artistic passion deeply rooted in her being, Jenn has been pursuing theatre for over a decade. Placing equal importance on every facet of theatre has made her well versed in many aspects of the stage. Be it directing and devised creation, stage performance, dramaturgy, or stage management, Jenn is at home when involved in any production. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University in Montreal, and has worked for theatre companies Geordie Theatre (Montreal, QC) and Theatre; Just Because (Fort McMurray, AB). Jenn continues to work as an educator of young artists and workshop leader of all ages. She is also currently the Artistic Director of Mask Mime & Mayhem Productions. Her favourite moments of theatre are those magical, imaginative instances that surprise the audience while uplifting the soul. On the off chance you find her doing something unrelated to the theatre, she would probably be hanging out with her very judgmental cat.
