2017 Alumni Show Archive

Alma Matters Productions and Pink Door Productions present: ASMRtist – a hybrid of theatre, sound, and video exploring the boundaries of human connection.

ASMR, or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, is an emerging YouTube phenomenon in which video artists use sound to trigger pleasant tingling sensations in viewers’ bodies, encouraging feelings of calm and relaxation. ASMRtist brings this phenomenon into the public setting through live performance, inviting audiences to experience ASMR together through the story of Bell Angele.

Bell Angele just wants to fall asleep but her mind is racing. Restless, anxious, and curious, she finally turns to ASMR to calm her body and mind. On her journey to ASMRland, she meets the fairies Tingle Bell and Trigger Bell who take her down the path of her most intimate and traumatic sense memories. At the hands of a stranger, Bell Angele faces her demons and finds the path to healing.

Welcome to ASMRland. You have nothing to be afraid of.

September 7-16 2017 at the Helen Gardiner Phelan Playhouse

Sarah Marchand founded Alma Matters Productions in her grandmother’s namesake to explore gender, body image, and mental health. Collaborator Chelsea Dab Hilke is the founder of Pink Door Productions and is a Director and Producer based out of Toronto. Her current artistic focus is to share lesser known stories by lesser known artists – specifically by and about women.


Every year alumni from our undergraduate program have the opportunity to propose a show and produce it with the generous support of our technical staff, facilities, and other liaisons. Providing a space for our graduates to get a show off it’s feet, produce a new work, dabble in a new form of theatre, or give their new theatre company a boost, is something the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies is proud to offer.

From the dream team that brought you Hedwig And The Angry Inch crashing through the Helen Gardiner Phelan Playhouse doors, comes a new Canadian work featuring a new drag diva.

All-American World-wartime gal and superstar stewardess of the airforce preaches to the choir in Pearle Harbour’s Sunday School! It’s some good old-fashioned spiritual edutainment.

Alumni Justin Miller (writer/performer) and Rebecca Ballarin (director) return with the latest installment of Pearle’s tragicomic struggles—the fifth play since debuting the character two years ago.

Come to sing, clap along, and listen quietly! Today’s lesson will be about safe spaces, safe logic, and regressive progressivism, and features live music and original songs in the style of Taylor Mac, Phil Ochs, and Raffi.

Trust in Pearle as she guides her flock through the perils and parables of being a progressive ally in the Toronto, the greatest city in the best post-national nation, Canada!

This acidic blend of drag and bouffon-clown will have you sobbing with laughter. But don’t worry: together, we’ll be U.S. of A-okay.

Praise for Pearle! See the gal with gumption that critics say:

“… one of the most welcome additions to Toronto’s performance scene… Pearle is glamorous, poised, and devastatingly funny.” (Daily Xtra)
“A delight! … from the silly to the sublime.”
(Schmopera)PH SS poster (full) (002)


“A drag queen who’s as tart as Rosalind Russell.” (Toronto Life)


“She’s simply divine, darlings.” (Opera Ramblings)
