2007 Grant Recipient
English Theatre Winner
A 23-year-old acting student from High River, Alberta, Lindsey Angell is currently enrolled in Studio 58, the Theatre Arts Program of Vancouver's Langara College. She is a graduate of the Alberta High School of Fine Arts in Okotoks, and of the two-year Theatre Arts program at Mount Royal College in Calgary.
While studying at Mount Royal College, Lindsey acted in the college's annual Shakespeare in the Park summer festival as well as in other MRC productions. Besides acting, her performance abilities include singing, tap dancing, clowning and mime.
Kathryn Shaw, Artistic Director of Studio 58, describes Lindsey as "an exceptional student with a very promising future as an actor. She displays marvelous emotional transparency, depth and range. Her presence is terrific and she has the confidence to command the stage. Vulnerability and edge are both hallmarks of her work. Lindsey has the makings of a leading lady."
The Hnatyshyn Foundation jury members, John Lazarus, Linda Moore and Gerald Lenton-Young, found Lindsey's audition performance to have good emotional depth with thoughts and actions thoroughly developed. "She is believable and engaging, - clearly strongly connected to the material and to her own emotional sources. Gestures clean and communicative, good sense of humour and irony."
