We are lucky to have Cara back with us this year as Auntie Hem. You may remember her as the Beaver in Freezing…Flap, Flap, Flap!

Cara is grateful to be back in Ottawa this holiday season braving the blizzard here at the Gladstone Theatre. Some favourite credits include; Measure for Measure (Thought for Food), the 25th Annual Puttnam County Spelling Bee (KooGle Theatre, STC) Remember That Song (Smile Theatre), Trail of Judith K (Thought for Food), The Full Monty (STC). When not on stage Cara can be found teaching and directing at various schools around the GTA or hanging out with her dogs Gertrude and GIGI. Much love to family and Logan.
