Sharon’s passion for acting started with Salamander Theatre in Ottawa, where she performed in five plays before she finished high school. Since she completed her BFA Theatre (Acting) from Memorial University of NL in 2007, Sharon has appeared on stages in Newfoundland and Labrador, Ontario, and New Zealand. She has been a company actor for repertory seasons with Grand Bank Regional Theatre and Stephenville Theatre Festival. Most recently, she appeared in New Curtain Theatre Company’s The Ladies’ Foursome, Girl Power’s Brazil Square, Best Kind Productions’ [title of show] and Second Shot, and Persistence Theatre‘s Women Playing Hamlet, The Mirror, and Sharon’s solo show, Original.
Sharon loves text work and engages deeply and introspectively with the script she is given. Her approach to character development incorporates both Stanislavskian technique and embodied, dance- or clown-based work. Sharon was the winner of the 2017 Rhonda Payne Theatre Award, which acknowledges the work of a woman artist in Newfoundland and Labrador.
