Although we did not take home the hardware, the Wolves team had a lot of fun at the ceremomy and cheering on our amazing associates in the industry. As a Board Member, I am so pleased by the turnout and thrilled to be part of such an inclusive and creative workforce.

Act of Faith by Janet Munsil

April 11 - 20th, 2019

Produced by Realwheels Theatre, presented by The Cultch

Inspired by the true story of an inexplicable recovery from paraplegia by one of our own – a Vancouver teacher/dancer – after 13 years of life in a wheelchair, this is a story that baffles the medical/scientific community, arouses conflicting emotions in the disability community, and is celebrated by the religious community to which “Faith” belongs.

What happens when everything we believe to be true about ourselves or those closest to us us challenged by new information? If you aren’t religious, can you believe in a miracle? This new play explores the mystery of faith-based healing, and the consequences of life-changing transformation.

Shaking and shuddering to her feet, Klaudt is completely believable as Faith. She’s an earnest, spirited performer with a lot of appeal and she clearly has done her homework in managing her wheelchair, wheeling with ease around David Roberts’ set.
— Jo Ledingham

Goodnight Desdemona, Good Morning Juliet by Ann-Marie MacDonald

Jan. 25 - Feb. 17, 2019

Produced by United Players of Vancouver

A young English literature professor from Queen's University believes that Othello and Romeo and Juliet, were intended as comedies. She fantasizes a journey into her unconscious mind, and finds herself lost in the two Shakespearian tragedies. With the help of Desdemona and Juliet she seeks the lost wise fool, and the truth of herself.

Danielle Klaudt is very cute as lusty, hotblooded Juliet, in love with her own melodramatic idea of death.
— Jerry Wasserman, Vancouver Plays

The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe

Oct. 19 - Nov. 10

Produced by With a Spoon Theatre in association with Rumble Theatre. Presented by Pacific Theatre

A pack of teenage girls prepares for battle on the soccer field. In the exhilaration of adolescence, they grapple with everything from pop culture to politics, discovering their identities as individuals and as a team. Who will come out on top?

Standouts in this very strong ensemble are Jalen Saip (#11), Danielle Klaudt (#7), and Montserrat Videla (#14), who are all convincingly skinless.
— Kathleen Oliver, The Georgia Straight

Directed by Jamie King.

Featuring Georgia Beaty, Tanja Dixon-Warren, Danielle Klaudt, Kim Larson, Paige Louter, Jalen Saip, Shona Struthers, Amanda Sum, Montserrat Videla, and Ali Watson.

Produced by Danielle Klaudt and Paige Louter. Lighting Design by Nicole Weismiller. Sound Design by Matthew MacDonald-Bain. Costume Design by Chantal Short. Stage Management by Victoria Snashall.

I could say something about every one of these excellent performances, but the real strength of the show is its seamless ensemble. As #25 says, “Teamwork makes the dream work.” That’s as true on the stage as on the pitch, and these Wolves are certainly winners.
— Jerry Wasserman, Vancouver Plays
