What do you do if you forget your line? One of our favourite aspects of the shows we do here at DuffleBag Theatre is the fact they’re part scripted and part improvised. That means we’re all rehearsed for a scripted show that tells the story from beginning to end but there’s room to “improvise”, meaning, make things up on the spot, throughout. So if we do happen to...

Do you always play the same parts? At DuffleBag Theatre we love to shake things up and keep it interesting! So we’re big fans of switching up the roles we play in each show. Every actor in DuffleBag gets trained to play just about every DuffleBag role so you could see the same show a dozen times and it would be different every time as different combinations of DuffleBag actors would swap...

We got this very smart question in a couple of schools recently so today we’re answering it! Is it hard playing the opposite gender? In DuffleBag we’re always playing characters completely different than our everyday selves. In any given show we could end up playing an old lady, a little boy, a ghost, a villain, or even a tree. And yes, sometimes we end up playing male roles as women...

Today we’re answering the question: How old are you? The cool thing about acting and being in theatre is you can do it at any age. The youngest member of DuffleBag Theatre is 24 and the oldest is 44! Most of us started putting on performances and acting in school plays back in elementary school — and we hope to keep doing so until we’re old and grey. Acting is fun and worth...

How do you get changed so fast? We are very fortunate to have fabulous costume designers that create the majority of the costumes we use in the shows. When creating a new costume we look for every opportunity to make a piece as easy as possible to put on and take off. That means no complicated buttons, clasps or zippers. Instead, many of our costumes can simply be slipped over our heads and held...

Where do you get all your costumes? Luckily for us, we have incredible costume designers that create most of our wardrobe. They are brilliant at creating colourful, creative pieces that are easy to put on and take off — which is crucial with the amount of costume changes we often have in our shows. We also have a lot of fun shopping at used clothing stores like Value Village and Goodwill to...
