Biography

A versatile actor, singer, music director and voice coach, Barb has been active on the Vancouver musical and community theatre scene (Theatre Under the Stars, Gateway, Metro, Applause Musicals, North Van Players, Theatre West Van, and Deep Cove Stage) for over 25 years. She has twice been nominated for a musical theatre ‘Ovation’ award.  Barb is also a long-term member and assistant director of Vancouver’s very hip (55+) PALS Chorus, and also directs a 5-voice harmony ensemble. No stranger to Deep Cove Stage, Barb music directed the 2015 panto, ‘The Dragon of Wantley’, and in 2014, the Ovation award-nominated, rockin’ 60s musical soap opera, ‘SUDS’. What a treat to be back in the saddle at DCSS, working alongside the uber-talented Director and Choreographer, Peter Zednik on this amazing Kander & Ebb musical revue!
