VanArts Acting for Film & Television Graduate Everett Shea is currently on stage in a local production of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap, running until July 28 at Coast Capital Playhouse in White Rock. The stage production is directed by Wendy Bollard, who also teaches in our full-time Acting for Film & Television program.
Of Everett’s performance in the role of Christopher Wren, reviewer Alex Browne for Peace Arch News says, “Shea’s performance as Wren is quite delightful, easily winning over the audience with Christopher’s delicate sensibilities, ardent aestheticism and macabre sense of humour – as well as revealing his underlying agitation – without ever resorting to caricature.“
Director Wendy Bollard is a singer, actor, producer and director with over 25 years of vocal experience. After graduating from Anthony Holland’s Vancouver Film and Theatre School she moved to England where she studied at The Actor’s Centre in London and performed at various venues throughout London and Dublin.
