Harold Squire, Director at Large; Technical Director

Harold 2020 Edit.jpg

I have been playing music since 2007 on trumpet primarily and have always enjoyed participating in the creative arts.  Aside from music, I did a little bit of drama back in high school, and then went into music and theatre training at the University of Calgary where I did a little bit of everything. I started with basic tech, how to fix costumes, hang lights, sketch characters etc., and in my second year I did an acting course, taught by Val Campbell. I then received an opportunity to work with a small publishing company in Calgary called Tyche Ltd.  where I recorded three audio books as a voice actor.  From there, I went on from there to act in a few short plays with the directing classes at U of C and took a few voice classes with Jane MacFarlane and finished up my time at university with a set design course.  During this time, I was also learning about music, how to teach it, and of course doing many, many concerts.

 

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Music with a minor in Theatre and after I graduated, I acted in the Canadian Badlands Passion Play in 2018 and also took part in the 2019 Passion Play - performing on trumpet. In 2018 I was also a member of the chorus in Bizet's Carmen.

 

In 2019 I joined Imagine and designed the soundscape for The Woman in Black, which I won a CAT Award for and additionally I functioned as an assistant director when Darryl took the stage.  I was also one of the musical directors for Dreams of Broadway 2 until we stopped the production due to COVID-19.
