CAST AND CREW

Meet our fantastic musical director: Kevin Woo!!
💚
Which Align shows have you been involved with in the past?
Kevin: Shrek 1.0, Addams Family, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Joseph 1.0, Little Mermaid, Joseph 2.0 (all in the orchestra) Annie (MD). I subbed in the orchestra for a few performances of ACS (A Christmas Story), but not sure if that really counts. Lol.
•
What has been your favourite show you worked on?
Kevin: I’m gonna cop out and give two:
Annie because of the new role I was in. The cast, creative team, orchestra and crew were entirely accepting and supportive that I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I learned so much that year and had so much fun doing it.
The other ‘stand-out’ show for me has been Hairspray. This was a favourite for me because of how integrated (<– see what I did there?) the band was into the show. Music aside, which is just so much fun and has so much energy, performing with those particular musicians and cast members felt like creating magic every single night.
•
Do you have a favourite SHREK character?
Kevin: Donkey. Walking through life so oblivious and care-free, yet knowing where true friendship lies and how to fight for it.
•
If you were a fairytale creature, which would you be and why?
Kevin: Peter Pan – I never want to grow up!

SHREK will run February 2020 at the Michael J Fox Theatre in Burnaby. We hope to see you there!!#shrekalign2020


Introducing our amazing choreographer: Nicol Spinola!
💚
Which Align shows have you been involved with in the past? 
Nicol: Legally blonde, Annie and now Shrek! 
•
What has been your favourite show you worked on?
Nicol: Sweeney Todd – it was a passion project of mine that was realized in every way imaginable.
For Align, Legally Blonde was a ton of fun. To bring these larger than life characters to the stage in huge production numbers was a great challenge. 
•
Do you have a favourite SHREK character?
Nicol: Gingy is probably my favourite. He has such a quick nature to his story and makes me laugh every time. “Not the gumdrop buttons!” 
•
If you were a fairytale creature, which would you be and why?
Nicol: Probably tinkerbell, which is no surprise to anyone. She is tiny but mighty.

We asked the team some questions so you can get to know them! Meet director: Chad Matchette!
💚
Which Align shows have you been involved with in the past?
Chad: All of them!
•
What has been your favourite show you worked on?
Chad: The first time we produced Shrek because it was the first Align show. It was the first opportunity to put together a show of that size and scale from scratch and to do things I always dreamed of.
•
Do you have a favourite SHREK character?
Chad: Shrek
•
If you were a fairytale creature, which would you be and why?
Chad: I would be… Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk because he’s a dreamer
