Fringe Rocked!

The numbers are in and Fringe was a big success! Thank you to all my supporters for coming out and joining the fun. Time for some well deserved R and R and planning the next installment of this great adventure.

I’d also like to introduce you to one of Canada’s up and coming young directors, Alexsandra Marzocca. Here we are at the “Adventures of a SuperVet Tech” party. Alex was instrumental in helping me take my script from a simple powerpoint to a genuine piece of theatre. I’m so proud of her……and us for pulling it off. Thank you Alex. This is just the beginning.S and Alex

How do you get a semen sample from a Pomeranian? Sandra Lean-Leighton takes you through the back door of your local vet clinic. With true stories, she introduces you to feisty pet owners, quirky vets and loveable animals – and the veterinary technicians who look after them all.

Through the eyes of her caped alter-ego, SuperVet Tech, Sandra pays tribute to the unsung heroes of the veterinary world. “Vet techs are nurses for animals,” she says, “but so much more. We do x-rays, medications, lab analysis, small surgeries, owner counseling, you name it. The problem is no one knows who we are or what we do. I intend to change that.”

Combining her careers as a professional actor and a Registered Veterinary Technician, Sandra delights both theatre buffs and animal lovers alike. Her audiences are treated to original music and video, dramatic monologues, and hilarious scenarios.

This ground-breaking show is a first for the veterinary world and is not to be missed! Lilliput Productions in association with the Toronto Fringe Festival presents:
