Michael Therriault has earned great renown for his tremendous versatility as an actor, in roles ranging from Gollum in Lord of the Rings: the Musical to Irving Berlin in The Tin Pan Alley Rag. He received a Dora Award for his starring role as Leo Bloom in the Toronto production of The Producers, a second Dora for Lord of the Rings, and was nominated for a Gemini for his depiction of Tommy Douglas in the CBC Television special Prairie Giant: The Tommy Douglas. This past summer, he could be seen on stage at Stratford in Peter Pan and Dangerous Liaisons.
Chilina Kennedy is a fast-rising star at Stratford, from her critically-lauded performances as Maria in West Side Story and Philia in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, to her star turn as Eva Peron in this season’s Evita, the festival’s first rock opera. Chilina built her reputation over three seasons at the Shaw Festival before making her Stratford debut in 2009.
