It has been a true pleasure having Neil Kuefler join our ranks on the Opera House Stage. A recent graduate of the BFA Acting Program at the University of Alberta, Neil keeps quite busy creating theatre with a number of companies in Edmonton. So we are fortunate to steal him away to play Peter Pevensie in The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe this Christmas.
What do you do outside of Rosebud?
I'm an actor.
What have been some favourite shows you've been a part of?
The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, Much Ado About Nothing, and Crazyface.
If you got to go to Narnia, who would you look forward to meeting?
I think I would really enjoy the Beaver's house. They are so nice and comforting and they eat like Kings!
What has been a highlight of being in Rosebud?
The community. I think that being involved with this show in this group of people has turned into the perfect storm of community. I have enjoyed myself so much and learned so much about the kind of community I want to create theatre within.
What are some of your non-theatre related interests?
I love science! I was going to be a Chemistry teacher before I decided to start acting for a career. Also History. I spend most of my summers at Fort Edmonton Park in Edmonton.
Is there anything else you'd like people to know about you?
