There is nothing more fun for an actor than getting to just play and bring out their own inner child. Children’s theatre is one of the most silly, freeing and energizing shows you can hope to be a part of; and the The Funky Punckies was just that. Having its Canadian premiere at the 2016 Toronto Fringe with a stellar cast of amazing artists, the show aimed to educate children on the use of punctuation, while also having a lot of fun. I also learned how to properly use a semi colon and a colon. The show directed by firecracker Laura Caswell was full of life, music, dancing and above all fun. By far one of the best experiences I have had on stage.
