Little Orphan Annie
Devised & Performed by Kyle Cameron
Costuming by Patrice- Ann Forbes
Walk a mile in my pumps: join Annie G'nish as she recounts growing up queer in the Maritimes and searching for "Home" through a storytelling and lipsyncing fiesta as overdrawn as her makeup!
Kyle is currently completing his MA in Theatre Studies at UOttawa, writing his thesis on Drag performance through a monster theory framework. Having only lived in Ottawa for a short time now his list of local work isn't super extensive but maybe you've seen him with Sad Ibsen Theatre at the Ottawa Fringe (Bless You, Bonaparte/ The Beast's Library) or at Fresh Meat 06 where he worked with Theatre Decentred (Honey Dew Me). Kyle would like to thank everyone for supporting these first few steps in not only the creation of this show, but the beginning of his (hopefully) illustrious drag career!
