The Cast of The Tempest
Meet just a few of the performers in our next show
Peter Higginson As you know from our previous newsletter, we are so pleased to announce the return of one of our most beloved performers, Peter Higginson. Peter was first seen on our stage in 1975 playing the role of Mereia in Caligula. Since then, he has played several leading and supporting roles in Shakespearean plays as well as lending his talents to contemporary scripts. Peter became beloved by our audiences when he graced our stage as the title character in King Lear in 2008 and he will, no doubt, win our hearts once again as Prospero.

Katherine Fogler Playing his daughter is Hart House Theatre newcomer, Katherine Fogler. Katherine is a graduate of Queen's University where she performed with the Queen's Players musical sketch comedy troupe. She now lives in Toronto and trains and performs with the Second City Longform Conservatory program.

Amaka Umeh Also making her Hart House Theatre debut is Randolph Academy graduate, Amaka Umeh. Amaka plays Ariel - a spirit beholden to Prospero who acts as Prospero's eyes and ears throughout the play. Ariel uses her magical abilities to cause the tempest in Act One which gives the play its name and, no doubt, Amaka will be using her "triple-threat" skills to build this otherworldly character.

William Foley Returning to Hart House Theatre's stage as one of Shakespeare's great monsters is William Foley in the role of Caliban. No stranger to playing the villain, William first appeared on our stage ten years ago as Iago in Othello. Most recently, he played the role of the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: The Legendary Musical Comedy. William has performed in theatres around Ontario and the east coast and now calls Toronto home.
