John Galbraith

Artistic Director

I am extremely grateful to MMT for this experience. I have had the pleasure of working with the group onstage 3 times and once behind the desk, working with Craig on The Wedding Singer. 

I like to work in a collaborative environment with the team and actors. I will come to rehearsal with a clear vision of how I want the scene to work, but there is a lot of trial and error to see what feels right for the actors and the production as a whole. 

I like to create an environment where everyone is comfortable and feel safe to try new things. I expect actors to come to rehearsal on time and ready to work together. 

I am looking forward to working with an incredible cast of young people to get this show on its feet!

KC Martinez

Music Director

I am absolutely thrilled to make my MMT debut as the musical director for Into The Woods JR! With a profound understanding of musical storytelling, I love to weave melodies into the fabric of each production, creating a harmonious symphony that elevates the theatrical experience for all.

I come with extensive expertise working with children, having conducted numerous musical productions for both junior community and high school settings. Recognizing that not everyone reads music, I've effectively guided groups and individuals with diverse vocal

abilities. I bring a dynamic energy to every rehearsal, ensuring that everyone leaves with the songs ringing in their hearts. I foresee everyone, myself included, arriving well-prepared, maximizing our time to enrich vocal expression for each character.

 

My commitment to this cast is to create a safe, fun, and open space during the rehearsal process. I strive to make sure everyone feels they’ve given their absolute best and I’m readily available and approachable for any questions or extra help. 

 

I’m so excited to begin! Let’s venture Into The Woods together!

Laura Carney

Choreographer

I am so excited to be working on MMT’s inaugural Youth Production of “Into the Woods JR” after being an on-stage performer with the group for the last 10+ years.


I have been fortunate enough to have worked with many talented choreographers since I started with the Encore Series in 2005. However, my love of dance started before that at the age of 3 in ballet class, soon graduating to jazz, tap and musical theatre.

I plan on putting all my performer experience and what I have learned from my dance teachers and choreographers over the years to good use. I promise to come into all rehearsals well prepared and with detailed notes. I also want to ensure everyone feels safe and in a welcoming learning environment. We will start each dance rehearsal off with a fun ice breaker/warmup, which will lead us into our very fun and productive rehearsal. My goal is to have everyone feeling confident in their steps and movements in rehearsals, so we have a finished product that we are all proud of once on stage.
 

It's been a true privilege to be part of the Meadowvale Music Theatre family for the last decade. I look so forward to working on what I know will be a magical & memorable production
of Into the Woods JR.
