Alberta Faucet has always had a fondness for the dramatic arts. She loves being on stage. While living in Toronto, she fell in love with improv and sketch comedy. Since moving to Huntsville, Alberta has performed numerous times with the HfA. Alberta is also a playwright and has directed plays featuring youth from the Muskoka community while working in Tawingo. She teaches outdoor kindergarten and art at Muskoka Highlands Academy. This will be Alberta’s fourth year hosting T-PAN and they can’t wait to do it again!

by Tim Lucier his roots in the performing arts began in the TOROS and Arts Nipissing programs in North Bay, where he developed a strong appreciation for youth arts programs (and a lifelong passion for music, theater and dance) . Tim now plans and leads transformational leadership retreats in Algonquin Park. He is also a yoga teacher, decluttering coach, and has coordinated and led many student experiential trips to Cuba and the Dominican Republic. Tim aims to “live simply and explore with curiosity”. You may have seen him as “Sky” in HfA’s 2019 production of Mamma Mia.

Sarah Vanasse returned to Huntsville this year after living and teaching in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Sarah is an educator, artist, photographer, actress and musician. She has directed and performed in numerous amateur and professional theater productions across Canada, including 5 HfA musicals. Sarah is thrilled to be back and involved again in the Huntsville community! She works in Tawingo and runs camp and outdoor education programs. We are delighted to see her back at T-PAN!
