Director - The Last Five Years
Steffi is VERY excited to be returning to work with the wonderful team at Secondary Characters! A self-confessed student for life, Steffi holds a Diploma in Theatre Performance from Douglas College, a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with a Major in Theatre Performance from the School of Contemporary Arts at SFU, and a Bachelor of Education with a Minor in Environmental Education also from SFU.
You may know Steffi through her many years of teaching theatre to youth in Chilliwack, the Fraser Valley, and as far away as Nunavut. You may also know her from her onstage Chilliwack appearances with Secondary Characters (Jo in Little Women and Elsa in the Sound of Music) and Chilliwack Musical Theatre (Maria in West Side Story and Tuptim in the King and I). Steffi has also performed with UFV, CSOPA, the Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society, Douglas College, SFU, the Troika Collective and 591 Productions performing everything from classics to contemporaries and from opera to absurdism.
In what little spare time she has left, Steffi also loves working backstage in theatre, having stage managed, dramaturged, artistic directed, directed, musical directed, and designed many shows in both Chilliwack and Vancouver. She also works with several film companies based in Vancouver as both a dramaturg and producer.
