Happy New Year!

Hey, this is Christine writing on behalf of Delinquent Theatre wishing you a very happy New Year – 2011 turned out to be a great year for Delinquent Theatre, and I’d like to take a moment to look back!

We began 2011 with a production of my play Our Time at the Dorothy Somerset Studio, with help from Theatre at UBC.  In May and June, we joined the wonderful artists at ITSAZOO Productions  and Enlightenment Theatre to do Bridge Mix, where we made lots of new friends and created PARKED: an indie rock musical for novelty instruments.  In September, Laura directed Oh My God as part of the Vancouver International Fringe Festival, and we had a blast meeting artists from all over Canada and delighting audiences with our brand new script by Josephine Mitchell.  In October, November and December we took part in the Here Be Monsters Festival in the Theatre Under the Gun nights, and made a demo of our musical to send out in hopes of debuting a full-length version of PARKED next year.

Laura and I would like to thank the amazing actors, designers, and technicians without whom none of these adventures would be possible:  Pippa Mackie, Brendan Albano, Hersie Nina-Init, Beaner Mitchell, Kathy Yan Li and Jonathan Tsang  (Our Time), Meaghan Chenosky, Britt MacLeod, Mishelle Cuttler, Brian Cochrane, Alexander Keurvorst and Ira Cooper (PARKED), Sarah Wilson, Karina Palmitesta, Josephine Mitchell, and Megan Gilron (Oh My God), Claire Hesselgrave, David Kaye, and Arlen Kristian Tom (Remember, Remember at HBM Festival).

We are grateful most of all to you, our supportive audience and community of peers.  Delinquent Theatre has an exciting new show announcement coming in early January, so watch this space.  In the mean time, have a wonderful holiday season and enjoy the video greeting below.

Happy New Year,

Christine Quintana
