Jelly Belly Makes Garbage Delight of Alligator Pie
- 2005 / 2006
This production for theatre for
young audiences has been Juliet's most physical performance thus far.
A non-stop demonstration of rythm and poetry focussing on works by Canadian
poet Dennis Lee. This was also a Carousel Players with which Juliet
toured across Canada. This production also starred Nicky Phillips and
New Canadian Kid – 2004
SUDBURY THEATRE CENTRE
This play is a story about a mother and son who emigrate to Canada and the various problems they encounter along the way. It was a TYA (Theatre for Young Audiences) production and ran for one month at the STC. Juliet played the role of the mother and was delighted to be reunited with Wayne Sujo (also a member of the Shaw acting ensemble) in this production.
Baking Time - 2003/2004
This was Juliet's first opportunity
to perform in a production with Carousel Players. With this show she
toured the UK as well as all accross Canada and loved the interaction
with the young theatre audiences. She was very pleased to finally be
working with children again after so many years.
Caesar and Cleopatra - On the 20th Century – Diana of Dobsons
THE SHAW FESTIVAL
Juliet performed at the Shaw Festival for two consecutive seasons. In 2002 she performed in 'Caesar and Cleopatra', 'Hello Again', and 'Panama Hattie'. She was also an understudy for seven different roles in four different plays ('Detective Story', 'Caesar and Cleopatra', 'Merrily We Roll Along', and 'His Majesty'), and surprisingly enough was called upon six times during the season to portray five of thes roles. She really enjoyed the challenges she faced and received the 'Tony Van Bridge Award' for most promising newcomer for that season.
In 2003 Juliet performed in 'On the 20th Century', 'Diana of Dobsons' and 'Jubilee'.
She also understudied the lead role of Diana in 'Diana of Dobsons' and really enjoyed the new challenge.
Juliet really enjoyed both of her seasons working at the Shaw Festival and has made some life-long friends from this experience.
Little Shop of Horrors - 2001
Juliet really enjoyed performing
in this musical directed by Robert Metcalfe. She received the 'Aida
Broadbent Award' for her performance in this musical.

Godspell - 2000
Godspell was Juliet's very first musical theatre experience and she
hasn't looked back since. She really enjoyed performing in this show
as Sonia and was sad that it was such a short run. A very powerful show
for both the performers and the audience members.
Benson and Edges
Here Juliet plays the role of Ginger in this 'dark' short film directed
by Reza Rezai.
Juliet played the lead role in this French
TV movie. Her role was that of Elsie Butler: a New York / Jamaican who
came to Paris, France as a 'jeune-fille au-pair' (nanny) at the ripe
age of 18. (Ironically enough other than being from New York this was
exactly the same path that Juliet took and there are even more coincidences
within the film...) Elsie ended up working for an uptight 'bourgoise'
family and we also discover later in the film that she sings jazz part-time...
Bit by bit Elsie manages to 'loosen up' the entire family. This charming
movie was very popular in France and not only is it still played regularly
10 years later, it was also sold to several countries in Western and
L'Amerloque also stars Pauline Pinsolle, Didier Dijoux and Laure Killing.
Regenesis - 2006
Here Juliet plays Dr. Afi Lundi (AKA Patient Zero). A small but interesting
role where Juliet got to try her first dialect on film. In this particular
case the dialect was African.
Dark Angel - 2001
Juliet's first televison role in Canada
after her return from France... The episode was called 'Love in Vein'
and it was shot in Vancouver, BC.
