Her career escalated through her school years, including heavy involvement in the Marystown Central High Dominoes where she played a robot struggling to become autonomous in their 2003 performance of Property Rights. Following a season in the Grand Bank theatre festival, Lindsey began attending Memorial University, where she is taking her dead sweet time in completing the Diploma in Performance and Communications.

Jon also serves as the Sergeant (Sc. 3) and, later, as a couple of peasants.

He is undertaking a Bachelor of Arts program, with an English major, a Philosophy minor, and he’s also enrolled in the Performance and Communications Diploma Program.
