Hello everyone! My name is Vineeta (I also go by Vee), and I’m one of the production and admin interns for Shakespeare In Action. I’m fresh out of UofT this June with a BA in English, and minors in Music and Book & Media Studies.
It’s safe to say that I’m a complete artsy, with theatre being no exception. My first and most memorable experience with the Bard occurred when I was 8 – I received an illustrated Shakespeare book for Christmas with paper doll cutouts. Paper actors deserve a fitting set, so I gathered some cardboard, markers, glue, and voilà ~ an Elizabethan theatre in the living room! Over the years, I’ve fostered my love of Shakespeare with that same childhood spark of curiosity and wonder. I learned Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, The Merchant of Venice, and Hamlet in high school. And university brought an even wider variety of works: from mischievous fairies and Roman generals, to Much Ado About Nothing.
Here are some more random facts about me…I’m a book nerd, musician and part-time piano teacher. I love to write, sing, and recently got into voice acting (hurrah for youtube experiments ^.^)
I’m happy to be on board this 2012/13 season for SIA, and I can’t wait to learn more about the ongoings of a professional theatre company!
