Welcome Amelia George & Andre Fenton

We’re very excited to welcome two new members to the Bus Stop Theatre Co-op team!

Amelia Georges (she/her)
Assistant Technical Director & Custodian

Amelia graduated from Acadia University’s Theatre Production program in 2019 with a concentration in projection/video design. That being said, she can often be found doing a little bit of everything from lighting, to set and prop construction, costumes, stage management, painting, and whatever needs doing in-between. Since graduating, she has worked with several local companies across Nova Scotia/Mi’kma’ki, including The Villains Theatre, Ship’s Company Theatre, The Bus Stop Theatre, Valley Summer Theatre, and Quick as a Wink Theatre Society. Incapable of sitting still, Amelia is constantly in pursuit of new ways to create and present theatre that pushes boundaries.
