Amy Shostak – Edmonton
Bachelor of Arts (University of Alberta)
An actor, writer, teacher and (“zip-zap-zop!”) improviser, Amy Shostak’s many talents have taken her around the globe. And at the helm of Edmonton’s Rapid Fire Theatre, Shostak has in turn taken the troupe to new places, moving it from its fringe-theatre roots to Edmonton’s mainstream Citadel stage (and with future plans to build a dedicated space) and also into communities, through improv workshops for kids. Fitting the engaged urbanite mould, Shostak also co-chairs the influential Make Something Edmonton campaign.
