2022 Participants: Nathaniel Anderson-Jacobs, Aarti Dhiman, Juan-Carlos Figueroa, Lynroy James Ricketts, K’Sen Sjulian.


I liked how there were professional actors who already had experience in the acting or theatre industry because it gave me insights and more knowledge about this career and everything that takes place within this industry.
- Aarti Dhiman

In addition to practical techniques, this workshop has given me the chance to get feedback from someone other than my mom and the mirror. It's given me motivation to prepare ahead of schedule and has pushed me to improve at every step.
- Juan Carlos-Figueroa

They gave me good advice and tips on what to do for my real audition.
- Nathaniel Anderson-Jacobs


Allison is a triple threat who began performing at a young age in school, church, and community theatre productions in Brampton. She went on to study voice, and participate in drama competitions. During high school at St. Augustine Secondary School, she continued to surround herself with the arts; playing Trumpet, singing in the choir, and performing in annual theatre productions. Allison received her post-secondary training at Sheridan College's prestigious Bachelor of Music Theatre Performance program. After graduating with High Honours, she began her professional career in Dreamgirls at the historic Grand Theatre. Since then, she has worked with some of the top theatre directors and choreographers in award-winning productions. Between theatre contracts, she continued to hone her skills in Film & Television, which ultimately landed her roles in short and feature films, screened at several festivals in North America. Her most notable roles are Tracy in Medium Young, Izzy in Black Actress & Beyond Complicated, and Theresa in Handmaid’s Tale. She is completing her debut season at the Stratford Festival as Jo March in Little Women and Diana in All’s Well That Ends Well.
