Joe Pagnan Joe Pagnan, Set Designer
Joe's magical design of our 2014 production of The Tempest was lauded for its imagination, creativity and haunting beauty. Who better, to take on the creation of the mystical woods that entrap and entice the characters in this musical? Joe, who has studied with Ryerson University, Universität Weimar and the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, is a member of the Associate Designers of Canada. Examples of his work can be found on his website here >>

UC Follies presents
Based on the 2001 film, this is the story of Elle Woods - blonde, intelligent, perky and strong-willed. It appears she has it all, but her life is turned upside-down when her boyfriend, Warner, dumps her to look for a more serious life for himself. The determined Elle uses her sparkly personality combined with a high LSAT score to get into Harvard Law to win Warner back.
