From the program for Night Sky
SHELLEY-JEAN HARRISON (Speech Therapist and others) last appeared at Kanata Theatre in Private Lives and is very pleased to be back on the stage after spending time on the crew of recent productions. The subject matter of this moving play is of particular interest to her because of her areas of study and she is proud to be involved in bringing it to audiences. She would like to thank the cast and crew of her everyday life for their unending love and support.


From the program for Staff Room:

SHELLEY-JEAN HARRISON (Janice, Miss Ames, Lucy, Maxine) debuted at Kanata Theatre as Moira in Therac 25 for An Evening of One Act Plays and played the role of Deirdre in I Hate Hamlet. She has also had fun trying out another stage with Noeva Theatre in Something Personal at the Ottawa Fringe Festival. Most recently she has been helping out at KT behind the scenes (and at the parties). She is enjoying this chance to play multiple roles on stage at one go and would like to thank friends and family for ad-libbing while she has been taking time away from playing her real-life roles.

From The Heiress:

SHELLEY JEAN HARRISON (Catherine Sloper) is excited to be making her fourth appearance on the Kanata Theatre stage. Her most recent performance credited her with four different roles in last season’s Staff Room and she has been enjoying the KT experience backstage and in the makeup room on other productions since. Many thank you’s as usual to her family and friends for tolerating the interruption to our regularly scheduled programming and particularly to her Monsters for letting Mom have a turn!

From Having a Wonderful Time, Wish You Were Her:

SHELLEY JEAN HARRISON  (Jennifer) is enjoying the lighter side with her sixth role on the Kanata Theatre stage. In her last outings at KT she was treading these boards more heavily as Catherine in the drama The Heiress and shared the stage with her family in the musical The Gallant Tailor. With this cast and crew she is feeling very lucky to be part of such a dynamic and fun loving group and is grateful as always to her real life supporting cast for giving her a chance to spend some time in the spotlight.


From Private Lives::

SHELLEY JEAN HARRISON (Sybil) was last seen by Kanata Theatre audiences as Ava in Friends, With Benefits. Her other KT appearances have included Dierdre in I Hate Hamlet and Catherine in The Heiress. In her eighth turn on this stage she is having a "heavenly" time on honeymoon with this "lovely" group of people. She can never say enough thank yous to her family and friends for always being her best audience.
