Continuing to share more of our fantastic team, today we are sharing a little about Cindy Riley, our Theatre Administrator.
As a Theatre Administrator and working closely with the General Manager of Theatre, she’s responsible for managing the administrative aspects of the theatre, allowing the creative team to focus on bringing their artistic vision to life.
– As a born and raised Islander, how are ways you have found yourself involved in the community?
Despite being a full-time working parent of two daughters, I managed to find time to volunteer by involving my kids in the process. While they were participating in dance, theatre and ringette, my husband and I volunteered with various events. Moreover, when my girls were younger, we took the opportunity to volunteer at the Soup Kitchen, which I believed was a valuable experience for them to appreciate their privilege and understand the importance of giving back to the community.
– What’s your favourite musical? And why?
There are so many – but a couple of my favourites have been Hairspray and Mamma Mia. Lots of music, dancing and laughter – that to me makes for a great night of theatre.
– What’s your favourite restaurant in PEI?
My favourite (only 1?) would be Fins at Tracadie Harbour. This is a relatively new restaurant, with the best fish tacos. Not only is the food great but the location/view is spectacular.
When not working Cindy enjoys knitting, crocheting, camping, fishing and beaches.
