The Manitoban: The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Opens At The Royal MTC
There is good representation of University of Manitoba alumni and instructors involved in the Royal MTC production of The Curious Incident of The Dog in the Night.
The production is directed by Winnipeg-based director Heidi Malazdrewich, who has spent some time teaching theatre at the University of Manitoba and University of Winnipeg. Its cast members consist of thespians who are either based in Alberta or Manitoba. Amongst the Manitobans are Terri Cherniack (as Mrs. Alexander), Beverly Ndukwu (as Punk Girl) and Cherissa Richards (as Siobhan).
University of Manitoba alumni Terri Cherniack has featured in several productions at the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre and is excited to take part in the Winnipeg production of the play. For her, being able to learn new accents during rehearsals is her favorite part of the production.
“I love accent work,” Cherniack said. “I spent a lot of time during the summer learning accents. Our dialects coach has all these tapes and recordings of Swindon accents and learning these accents helped me to understand my character and her affection towards Christopher.”
