Emma Gibbs -
Jenna Hoener - Past Camp Instructor
Emma's journey with HUB began at the age of 11 when she was cast in the title role of HUB's first ever production. Since then Emma has gone on to work in numerous professional theatre and television productions. Appearing on such shows as Disney's Wingin' It and Debra, CTV's Murdoch Mysteries and Flashpoint as well as Hannibal. Emma has trained under such acting coaches as Louis Baumander and Georgina Reily and has her BFA specialized honours from York University's prestigious Acting Conservatory. Over the years HUB has become Emma's true home and passion. She looks forward to working closely with the company year after year to reach as many Youth as possible, giving them the experiences and education that theatre and performance can offer.
A current student at Queens University, Jenna dedicates her spring/summer to HUB Productions and the wonderful direction of our campers! After 8 years as a HUB instructor our students look forward to learning from Jenna year after year. Her competitive dance background shines as she choreographs exciting musical numbers for our weekly shows as well as her extensive musical theatre knowledge.
Carol Bridle (aka: Costume Carol!)
Carol has been involved with HUB Productions and the Rene M Caisse Theatre since their inception - as a Producer, Costumer, Props Consultant, Set Designer and surrogate Mom to all involved in our theatre programs over the years. She has also been a Producer and Costumer with a number of Rotary productions and somehow seems to end up involved, in one way or another, in most stage productions in Muskoka! Her ever present smile, her patience as well as her extra large costume cupboard are one of the reasons that kids keep coming back to The Rene Caisse Theatre year after year.
