12 AW Cast profile

Sharon MacDonald - the Guard … and more

  Sharon MacDonald has a unique involvement in this presentation of 12 Angry Women.  She has two roles — one on-stage, the bigger one behind-the-scenes.  As the court Guard who makes a few appearances, but also as the Stage Manager for the production, she gets, as she says, “to feed both my acting and my management appetites.”

  She is well equipped for both kinds of work.  Immersed in the theatre scene at university, she went on to teach Theatre Arts in Island high schools for many years.  She joined ACT after retiring in 2011.  She has served valiantly in several capacities on the Board of Directors, and has had a few acting parts.  But a very significant contribution has been stage management — for Inherit the Wind, Little Shop of Horrors, Skin Flick and Rainbow Valley … and for the challenging outdoor presentations of Macbeth, Much Ado About Nothing and Hamlet.

  Sharon does have a life outside of theatre — in art and music (especially choral singing), in outdoor activities, and in the very special role of caring for grandchildren.

  “This is a powerful play,” Sharon says, one with a provocative message about the need for digging under the surface, for asking questions and weighing evidence.  “That’s so urgent in our age of biased opinion and too-easily-swallowed news bites.”
