Introducing Guest Artist Andrew Legg

December 19, 2014

It's always a pleasure having this renaissance man back in our little valley. You may recognize him from such Rosebud shows as It's A Wonderful Life, Jack's Giant Adventure, and Oliver!. He's currently playing the jovial and kind Mr. Beaver in The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe. Introducing the talented, knowledgable, friendly and hilarious, Andrew Legg!

What do you do outside of Rosebud?

First and foremost I am a Daddy and a Sexy House Husband. Outside of Rosebud have a handful of things I do that conspire together to make up my day to day doings including, but not limited to:

  1. Play music on an ever expanding family of instruments including Hung-Drum, accordion, harmonica, ukulele, banjo, guitar, concertina, tin whistle, jaw harp, mandolin, (not always great but with much a child in a sandbox.)
  2. I perform in crisis scenarios. (telling policing students that they smell like a doughnut truck whilst they serve me with a search warrant.
  3. I consult in specialty coffee most recently with Red Engine Coffee Roasters in Lethbridge.
  4. I do some teaching, in the new year I will be teaching public speaking at the U of L
  5. I direct and seek directing opportunities.
  6. I write comedy
  7. I make leather art journals and paint watercolours
  8. I enjoy cigars
  9. I collect graphic novels that do not feature superheroes
  10. I cook. (literally and figuratively)

What have been some favourite shows you've been a part of?

I've tried to answer this question before and my answer seems either really weak or really zen-like and it would be that I always love the show I am in at the moment.

If you got to go to Narnia, what would you most want to do?

I love the adventure of the Voyage of the Dawn Treader and of the stories I think I would like to have lived that one the most.  How ever there is something that just injects myself into the Genesis/Apocalypse of the Magicians Nephew and the Last Battle that make me want to be one of the good guys that is on the right side at the right time. And........ of course I would love to meet the Great Lion himself but  really a beer at the beaver dam is about the coolest thing I can imagine.

What has been a highlight of being in Rosebud?

Is it a town? Is it a school? Is it a rag tag conglomerate of Theatre junkies? Is it Big C or little c Christian. Why do people come here? Who ARE these people? How dare they make art in the middle of no-where. They actually pray before the show?.....All of that.

What are some of your non-theatre related interests?

Please refer to question A subsections 1 through 10.

Is there anything else you'd like people to know about you?

My most important current project is a baby daughter that is due to be born on the last day of the run.
