About the Instructor: Jules Orton is an actor/director/pisces who loves theatre a lot. She’s acted on a lot of stages in Calgary and other Canadian cities and has been given a few awards. They’re all made of glass and look really nice on this new ladder shelving unit she just bought. She’s been in over 40 plays – she won’t list them all because that’s boring, but trust her – she’s a BIG deal. She’s directed 2 plays and they were both hard and wonderful. One time, Fred Penner drove her home in his hybrid car and sang some songs. She’s grateful for the creative connections she’s made in her life. And she’s humbled and made better by the speed bumps.
