About Me

Hi! I’m the Costume Coordinator for MYTP, better known as “The Costume Lady”!

I started helping backstage with MYTP when my eldest child was 8 years old. That was in 2011, and I have been with them ever since! I still remember the first play I ever saw as a child, and believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience live theatre, whether on stage or in the audience.

Things  you may (or may not know) about me:

  • I love really bad puns
  • My favourite season is Autumn
  • I’m proud of being English, but love Canada, Canadians, and living in Canada
  • I love to bake, especially Bundt cakes
  • I would like to have lived in the roaring twenties (but only if I was rich)
  • I notice when shoes are not “right” in a theatre production, but struggle to choose the right ones for my plays
  • I have a soft spot for Rogers and Hammerstein musicals
  • I’m a cat person, but am gradually changing into a dog person
  •  I prefer costuming kids over adults (although I wouldn’t turn down an adult production of Wicked)
  • I love Dr Pepper, but only drink it during show week

  1. Good on you and thanks for taking on the task of costume queen for the production and helping out the kids and the rest of us Moms.

  2. Hello, I tried to connect with you another time unsuccessfully . . . perhaps my weak tech skills??
    My cast member has the role (s) of Cheongsam salesperson / ensemble.
    I thought she needed a Japanese – style dress, but I am starting to think it’s two costumes – both a top and bottoms with sash belts???
    No Japanese dress???
    My number is (905) 462 – 3092 if my skill level is below getting an email response?? via this site.
    Thank you so much,
