One Man, Two Guvnors Portraits | Edmonton Portrait Photographer

I just finished a really special contract, with a fantastic group of people. Typically, I’m not the type to get post show blues, or remorse over the closing of a show. One of the things I love about being an actor is the contract work. I do a show, and inevitably it will end. Some shows are akin to the Edmonton winter, where it never feels like it’s going to end, and others fall more towards the Edmonton summer, they are over too soon. But from the get go, there is an end date and while it’s not something I fixate on, I take solace in that ever approaching completion. 

All that being said, this contract is a hard one to leave behind, it was the perfect storm. A great cast and crew, a great script and a great theatre…. and before it’s gone into the night, I wanted to post some images I took during the last week of the run.

I set up a very modest little studio in the back of our dressing room and during pre-show, intermission and after the curtain… I snapped a few character portraits. Then, for closing, everyone in the cast and crew got a stack of sixteen 4x4 photos (all the characters) wrapped in string with a bow. I rarely do closing night gifts and I also rarely print my own photos… something I’m going to do more of (on both fronts). Here’s to the Citadel Theatre’s One Man, Two Guvnors and a huge group of friends. “Guvnors on tree.”
