How long have you been doing this for?
In the second part of our ongoing online Q&A sessions we will be answering the question…
This is a great question – but a tricky one because it has a few answers. DuffleBag Theatre itself started in 1992 for the London International Children’s Festival in London, Ontario, Canada. So it’s been around for over 21 years! Marcus and Rod have been part of DuffleBag since the beginning. The other members of the company auditioned and joined at various times later on. (An audition is like a try out for the theatre.) So when you see a DuffleBag show you might be seeing someone perform who has been working with the company for six years, or three years, or it might be one of their very first shows!
The other part of this question is how long we’ve each been acting for individually. And that too changes from person to person. Most of us got bit by the acting bug pretty early and started off putting on little performances for our families or auditioning for shows at school, church, camp, children’s theatre, etc. And our love for acting and performing has kept us working at it ever since!
