As founding Artistic Director and Producer of the Capitol Theatre she wore all the hats to create a season of quirky, heart-filled productions along with a series of film screenings. Amanda completed three seasons there, and some of her favourites include The Importance of Being Earnest, The Velveteen Rabbit, and Poof! The Musical by Nick Green and Darrin Hagen. Prior to that she headed up Twenties Street Productions also at Fort Edmonton Park. Since 2008, along with award winning playwright, Nick Green, she has premiered many original works such as My Blue Heaven, A Long Night, Love Letters and Under the Big Top. Amanda’s Fringe credits as director include Witches’ Brew Carrot Stew, The Kingship of NNNNorp!, and Target Audience. Acting credits include Bitches: A Woman's Fury, The Flood: A Disaster Story, Pornstar.USA and most recently Trout Stanley. For the University of Alberta, April de Angelis’ Ironmistress, Gabriel by Moira Buffini, and a staged reading of a new play, Fetch, by Elena Belyea.
