Q&A with Erica

Name your favourite YPT production:

It’s always changing, but I really enjoyed The 26 Letter Dance.

Describe your favourite Drama School memory:

There are so many! All the shows created by kids; amazing ideas and kind hearts.

What would the central theme of a play written about you be?

Clumsy but caring.

As the 2019/20 Season theme is the Seven Ancestral Teachings, what is something you appreciate about Toronto and why?

The people! So many backgrounds and cultures and experiences and ideas. There is always something to learn and celebrate.
