Trailers for Web Series

The trailers for two web series Sare acted in have dropped! YOU'RE NEVER ALONE and Season 2 of SLO PITCH.

Staged Reading of  A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Sare ended 2021 by directing a staged reading of The Three Ships Collective's immersive, site-specific production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, set in Toronto's historic Campbell House Museum. While the run was cut short due to the Omicron variant, audiences and artists enjoyed two performances of this yuletide ghost story in Campbell House's ballroom, accompanied by live music and a roaring fire. Fingers crossed that the production can return in some form for the holiday season in 2022. 

Back On Camera

In the summer of 2021, Sare booked a couple of on-camera roles: a member of a rival softball team on season 2 of SLO PITCH, and a PSA for Smart Serve. Season 2 of SLO PITCH will air in 2022.

Canada Council Grant for AMERICAN TRADITIONAL


Sare and circus artist Tamara Salpeter have received a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts to further develop their original theatre/circus hybrid work AMERICAN TRADITIONAL, which explores the life of Maud Wagnera circus performer who became the first known woman tattoo artist in the US in the early 1900s. Sarah and Tamara began creating this work in 2018, with the help of an Ontario Arts Council Recommender Grant (recommended by Volcano Theatre). Stay up-to-date with this project on Instagram

Working From Home During Covid-19

Sare has been able to use their skills as a performer to work as a standardized patient and client,

helping post-secondary students and up-and-coming professionals in various fields work on their

communication and interpersonal skills.

Anti-Racism Work

As a white person, Sare recognizes that they are complicit in and benefit from systemic racism and white supremacy. Over the last year, they have been taking part in anti-racism and anti-oppression courses and engaging in independent research to further their knowledge of systemic racism, particularly in the arts industry. For fellow theatre artists, Sare highly recommends taking part in Nicole Brewer's Anti-Racist Theatre course
