Courtney is thrilled to be reunited with the talented team at Kalamatea after appearing as Johanna Reed in The Autobiography of Jane Eyre.
She is a Vancouver-based performer, who is a dual graduate of Capilano University’s Musical Theatre Diploma Program and UBC’s BFA Acting Program – (all that schooling took 7 years, so she is kinda like Harry Potter). During those years, she had the pleasure of working with many local companies on shows, such as Footlight Theatre, RCMT, Gateway, TUTS, Exit22, Theatre at UBC, Neworld Theatre, and Beach House Theatre.
Recently, Courtney has completed her Bachelor of Education Degree, choreographed a high school musical, and is currently preparing to make her directorial debut with Beach House Theatre’s upcoming production of Munsch Upon a Time. When Courtney actually has free time, she enjoys reading, dancing, anything Joss Whedon, checking closets for Narnia, and breaking clay pots to see if there are Rupees inside.

Fojan Nixie Shabrang
Nixie (aka Foooj) grew up in Vancouver, Canada. She has recently earned her BFA in Theatre Performance from Simon Fraser University.
She is totally psyched to be working with the cast and crew of All's Fair Play. Absolute magic! Previously she spent a year devising and performing in CAEZR: 33 Cuts as a part of the Artist With Day Jobs Collective. Aside from performance she loves traveling to far away places, doing expense reports, and ninja training.
Imelda has had a great time with the cast and crew of AFP! Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Imelda has trained as a singer since she was four. She graduated from SFU where she majored in Communications but performing in the arts got the better of her and she added a Fine and Performing Arts minor to her degree and then earned a diploma in Acting for Film and Television from Vancouver Acting School shortly after. She also has an unhealthy obsession with coffee, buying rompers, and watching trashy reality shows.
