June has been an exciting month for Cailin. Upon closing Waiting for the Parade at the Chemainus Theatre Festival, she returned home to Vancouver to prepare for a busy summer ahead.  She had the privilege of singing a hilarious parody of "Let it Go", from the movie Frozen, at the Vancouver Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards, and had a wonderful time celebrating professional theatre in the city.

She also had the exciting, yet daunting, task of stepping into another production of Les Miserables, this time back in Chemainus, as the "emergency Fantine".  She was able to help out the company (and play her dream role again) for about a week's worth of performances in another beautiful version of the show. She is happy to report that the other actress is now doing fine and she can return to her husband and dog! 

Cailin has a few interesting prospects on the horizon so keep checking back for further updates!
