Victoria Talent Team

Robert Conway

Born and raised in Victoria BC, Robert started acting in high school, and joined his first theatre group in Langford in 1989.  After appearing in several plays, including leads in “Black Comedy” and “Harvey”, Robert moved to Courtenay BC where he established himself with Courtenay Little Theatre and TheatreWorks Comedy Troupe.  Productions with CLT included “Amadeus”, “The Foursome”, “Plaza Suite”, “Twelfth Night” and “Maggie’s Getting Married” for which Robert was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at Theatre BC’s 2006 Mainstage.  Robert also received praise for his performance in TheatreWorks’ 2008 production of “Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me”. An energetic improviser, Robert has also been a member of Victoria’s Impromaniacs and Spilt Milk, as well as the Vancouver TheatreSports League.  Now back in Victoria, Robert is currently a cast member of Sin City, the Live Improvised Soap Opera. In 2003 Robert graduated from the Canadian College of Film and Acting, where his studies included film acting, stage combat, Shakespeare and voice over.

Andrew Green

Andrew has been performing inconsistently since he was 10 years old. He got his B.A. in drama from the University of Alberta and has been a Vancouver kid for 5 years now. 5 years is also how long he’s been a Scottish pirate in the story line of the B.C. renaissance festival. He’s been in such short films as “There can be only one”, “Mansion of Terror”, and “A Match made in Heaven”. He can even be found in the background of “Red Riding Hood”. Andrew loves karaoke and would no doubt spend every spare moment doing that or acting if it was feasible (or so I’ve heard). He looks forward to killing or dying for your entertainment, and anything in between.

Kylie Frederick

Kylie Frederick was born in Parksville British Columbia. Has been told that she is the female Chandler Bing as she loves to make people laugh. Went to school in Oklahoma on a golf scholarship and currently works at Eaglecrest golf club. Has been apart of numerous stage productions including “Go Ask Alice,” A Midsummer Nights Dream, “Nevermore,” and “Alice in Wonderland.” Fell in love with acting before she could walk and has studied all her life.  My other passions include golf, music, and of course the Vancouver Canucks. She is without a doubt their biggest supporter!

Andrew Wade

Andrew Wade is that guy who jumps at any opportunity to wear a tie. An actor and playwright, he graduated from the University of Victoria with a BFA in Acting and a BA in Writing, and has performed improvised comedy with The Impromaniacs, Theatreshorts, Slixer Entertainment, and Sin City Improv, as well as a stint as leader of UVic Improv during his campus days. CBC Radio once called his Twelfth Night performance ‘A Malvolio for the ages,’ and for a nice guy, he took far too much enjoyment from that time he played the evil, ambitious Iago. He writes about his acting career at adewade.wordpress.com, and really likes that shirt you’re wearing.

Maria Ridewood

Maria is a profeessional working actor who has been involved in community theatre in Duncan for over 20 years, and has credits in film and television as well. She is also a director in her own right having won rave reviews for her direction of "12 Angry Men" and "Our Town".  Her favourite stage roles include Golde in Fiddler on the Roof, and Mother Superior in Nunsense and Nuncrackers (both of which were directed by Mark Marriott) and won best musical of the year, best musical comedy and best actor..

Kjell Cawsey

Kjell Cawsey is an actor and an improviser who loves make-believe worlds. Creating comedy in Victoria, she has worked with Atomic Vaudeville, The Impromanics, Victoria TheatreSports, and The Phillip's Comedy Night team. She's also been grateful to perform two shows with The Victoria Shakespeare Society playing Calpurnia in Julius Caesar, and Lady Anne in Richard III. She is also involved with The Bad Dog Theatre and The Impatient Theatre Company while she is in Toronto. You might also catch her in a commercial, or cooking up a vegetarian feast. She would probably be pleased with both.

Jonathan Ellis

Jonathan Ellis is a Victoria-based actor/model.  He has performed various roles in live theatre including Edmund Swettenham in Peninsula Players' "A Murder is Announced" and a Guard in Kaleidoscope Theatre's "Disney's Aladdin Jr."  On screen Jonathan appeared in the role of Colin in Butterbee Production's "Life in 24fps" and has also done background work in numerous movies shot locally. Jonathan is currently preparing for his first lead role as Chris in Alpha Select's upcoming feature "Hostage Diner." Jonathan has done advertising work for CH Television's "Crimestoppers," the Motor Vehicle Sales Authority of BC, and the Downtown Victoria Business Association's "Joy of Light" campaign. He also writes, directs, and performs for The Empty Playground, an acting troop that produces web-based comedy sketches. He has been working with Indigo Productions since April 2010.

Geoffrey Conder

Born in Victoria in 1981, Geoffrey Conder began acting on local stages in his late teens and early 20s, with involvement in several community theatre groups.  On stage, Geoffrey performed in over two dozen separate productions, with such career highlights as Oberon in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, and Ichabod Crane in a musical version of ‘The Legend of Sleepy Hollow’.  After his years on stage, Geoffrey switched the focus of his career to movies and television, appearing in multiple productions in a minor capacity, and many low-budget local films.  Several years later, he was offered a role worthy of a union apprenticeship in the All-Canadian Feature Film ‘Beyond the Black Rainbow’, which is due for release in 2011.  Although Geoffrey is no longer actively seeking major theatre roles, he is always happy for the opportunity to do improvisational theatre with Indigo Productions for another chance to delight audiences in person.

Mark Marriott

Mark has been in the entertainent industry since the age of 11 going professional as an actor and director when he was 21.. He's been around long enough to know where the bodies are buried and the best places to dispose of them. He runs his own production company Indigo Productions with a lot of help from his friends with over 100 credits to his name in film, T.V., commercials and stage. His favourite things are live theatre and murder mysteries- the most fun you can have with your clothes on! Look for him as the evil father in "The Diary". He has no idea why he is always cast as the cop or a varation of the cop or the criminal never the romantic lead--like the nice romantic guy that he is.
