In addition to being a fantastic Artistic Producer, Aimee Poulin (she/her) is a theatre artist who wears all the hats who was born in northern Ontario, and grew up in Montreal. As an indecisive teen, Aimee first pursued higher education in sciences, while dreaming of studying theatre. Once she graduated, she realized she could actually do the thing she had been dreaming of and studied at John Abbott College’s professional theatre program with incredible teachers such as Anana Rydvald, Rea Nolan, Terry Donald, Zach Fraser and more. After completing that life changing program she got scared and decided she needed a bit more training before venturing into the world as a professional. She moved to Toronto to study Musical Theatre at Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts.
Since then, Aimee has been successful both on stage and off. She has performed for schools and sold out theatres in both French and English all over Ontario and Quebec in “The Snow Queen” and “The Barenstain Bears On Stage”. Backstage, she has been fortunate enough to work with Crow’s Theatre as Assistant Stage Manager on the remount of “The Wedding Party” staring the most talented group of actors she has ever been in a room with, and as a puppet operator on Stars: Together. Both projects directed by Chris Abraham and stage managed by the one and only Melissa Rood, with puppets made by Zach Fraser.
Aimee is beyond excited to be diving into work at Crane Creations, helping to grow this company, and help artists to understand that the precarious nature of the theatre industry is uniquely North American, something she learned thanks to artistic director Andreja Kovac. She is excited to build stability for artists and become a part of the international theatre community.
Crane creations has allowed me to understand that my training, talent and experience are deserving of a real wage. They gave me a real experience, working full time, as an actor. This stability allows artists to explore, grew and create in much more effective way. Just ask our designer Aditi Sharma!
