This is Selene's second Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival. In 2011, she performed the one-woman show "Cat Ladies, Cougars & Crones (oh my)." With a love of comedy and years spent honing her craft through stand-up comedy open mics, improv, acting and writing classes through Prairie Theatre Exchange, Winnipeg Theatre School, and the Manitoba Association of Playwrights, she's pleased as punch to bring this all together into The Nurdables show.
Lauren started her journey with the Nurdables as stage manager and is thrilled to have been deemed nerdy enough to be invited onto the stage. A military brat who isn’t really from anywhere, she moved to Winnipeg a few years ago and has been falling in love with this beautiful city (mostly the artistic community) ever since. This is her first performance at a Fringe Festival, but what she lacks in experience, she makes up for in a fervent, borderline creepy adoration of all things Fringe. She is looking forward to releasing her inner NURD and hopes everyone enjoys the show as much as she has enjoyed being a part of it!
First thing to know about me is my name and that’s Katrina. I was involved in theatre a wee bit in high school but was too shy to fully enjoy the experience. After I graduated I started to become more involved. I have been to multiple theatre classes at Prairie Theatre Exchange. I have been involved in a couple of local productions in my home town of Morden ("An Evening of Theatre with Mrs. Sorken and Friends," "Fools"). I have been in a few student films as well ("Extra Footage," "Parallel," "Space Trek"). This is my first Fringe show and I would like to continue to get more involved in theatre and film. And for your own fun, my favourite item of clothing is the sock.
