Hey, that’s not Nelson!
Due to a work commitment, Nelson is unable to join us for our Vancouver Fringe Festival run. But stepping into Nelson’s (little) shoes is Jessie-nominated actor, Chris Lam!
Chris is an actor, director and musician, as well as an alumnus of the Douglas College Theatre Program (2010) and a recent graduate of Capilano University’s Bachelor of Performing Arts Program. He has worked with various theatre companies such as Hoarse Raven Theatre, Metro Theatre, Seven Tyrants Theatre, and Pacific Theatre. He was nominated for a Jessie Richardson theatre award for his role in 100 Saints You Should Know (Pacific Theatre). He recently directed Connected: The Musical as part of Pacific Theatre’s Playground Series. On occasion, he also works as a stage manager and sound designer. His upcoming projects include play development with VACT’s MSG Theatre Lab and Vancouver New Music’s retrospective concert in the fall, and Gateway Theatre’s The King and I in the winter.
Yeah, we know. Chris is one talented guy. We’re thrilled to welcome him to Assaulted Fish for the Fringe shows in September and can’t wait for him to wow you all too. He’s “spec-tac-u-lar!” And he’s also a pretty snappy dresser…
Many thanks to Nelson, David C. Jones and Chris Gatchalian for their help in connecting us with Chris. We’ll miss you, Nellie!
