meet Mat Igarashi – music producer

Mat Igarashi is an avid gamer who lives in  Hawaii  and devises new EDM in his spare time. All of the music heard in Alex and Michael and Hannah will be original, produced entirely by Mat. He will be setting the scene for the nightclub Republic in Calgary, where Alex works, meets Hannah, and dances with her and Michael. Mat’s music will have a huge impact on the atmosphere of the show, and we are hugely grateful to him for contributing his talents. 

To hear Mat’s previous work, visit SoundCloud at Urb4N.

Her passion lies in teaching new talent and the joy of discovery in safe spaces.  Janine graduated from the MacEwan Theatre Arts program and is a proud mother of four.

 

Painting OR donating!

We’ve heard from some supporters that they’d rather contribute directly to the show instead of paint, so here we are: until May 16, 2020, via our fundraiser on Facebook, you can make a monetary donation directly to the world premiere of Alex and Michael and Hannah. Click here.
