Roger Howie
Roger Howie first worked with Theatre In The Raw as running crew, during their production of 'Waiting for Godot in the 'late 20th century'. He later acted for 'TITR' in 'Monique's Interview', 'The Glace Bay Miner's Museum', 'The Inspector General', and several one-act festival's including the Vancouver Fringe.
Roger was involved with the Vancouver Carnegie Centre Theatre Group for most of its 5/6 year exixtence where Jay Hamburger was instructor/moderator.
Roger speaking on Theatre In The Raw:
"I am inspired by their mandate to produce largely local, or at least Canadian, original, socially-oriented material, often with comparatively inexperienced talent, offering many writers their first production, many crew and 'techies' their first taste of working behind-the-scenes, or (as in my case) a 're-start gig'.
Some of those who began with Theatre In The Raw have entred academic theatre programs and professional work in both stage and film.
Artistic Director Jay Hamburger is an almost tireless tour-de-force, pushing for support of original ideas.
Thanks to this inspirator, I had a piece of my own produced on Vancouver Co-op Radio and on Stage, starring three first nations actors which I am very honored by."
Roger has been involved in some form of artistic endeavour most of his life; figure skating, dancing, writing, performance poetry, music, stand-up comedy and acting. In Vancouver he has performed with/in Vancouver Folk Festival, Richmond Children's Festival, Brave New Playrights, Punchline's, Yuk Yuk's Comedy Club, Citifest, Stage 43 Theatre Society, Midnight Run Productions, Dancing on the Edge, Theatre In The Raw.
