From the program for Murder in Noirville

Helen Weeden (Director) has been with Kanata Theatre a good number of years and, with her husband, is a founding member of Rural Root Theatre. She is a graduate of Algonquin College’s Scriptwriting program and in 2013 she wrote and directed the very successful Fairground Follies which was presented in August 2013 by Rural Root Theatre to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Carp Fair. Helen and Martin share the directing duties and together they have directed four Kanata Theatre shows, most recently Kitchen Witches.

From the program for When The Reaper Calls:

HELEN & MARTIN WEEDEN (Directors) Martin and Helen have been involved with Kanata Theatre either on or off stage in many capacities such as props, producers, sound and lighting. In last seasons production of Enchanted April, Martin played the daring (or should we say baring) role of Mellersh, while Helen worked on the costumes. Martin was previously seen in the role of Dr. Fenwick in Experiment with an Air Pump and Helen played Mina in Out of Sight, Out of Murder. Martin most recently designed sound for both Youll Get Used to It The War Show and Staff Room. Helen worked on costumes for Noises Off but is especially proud of her costume work for Youll Get Used to It The War Show. They co-directed two Kanata Theatre holiday productions: Aladdin and His Wonderful Magical Lamp and Alice Through the Looking Glass. Two years ago, Helen and Martin were instrumental in starting the Rural Root Theatre Company in the former township of West Carleton. Helen has directed My Darling Judith and will soon be working as director on Anne of Green Gables for their spring show.

From the program for The Kitchen Witches:

HELEN & MARTIN WEEDEN (Directors) have, once again, enjoyed the opportunity to work with such a great team on another KT production. In the past they directed When the Reaper Calls, as well as two holiday plays, Aladdin and His Wonderful Magical Lamp and Through the Looking Glass. They have also directed for Rural Root Theatre, with My Darling Judith, Anne of Green Gables, Cheatin Hearts and Dont Hug Me. They are a versatile couple and between them have also worked most notably on sound, costumes and props with several Kanata Theatre shows. Both have been on stage, most recently Martin in Kanata Theatres Enchanted April, and Helen, in Rural Root Theatres A Bull in a China Shop.
Martin and Helen are also founding members of Rural Root Theatre, situated in the former West Carleton Township, out of Constance Bay Community Centre.
