Hi Dave,

This show is small in scale but extraordinary in effect and is sure to capture the imagination of audience members young and old.

Meet the Cast of Robin and the Timeless Forest

There are four young adults with theatre backgrounds who have created the play and are now performing it - here are profiles of two of them with more to come...


Forrest Elliot (21) is a recent graduate of the Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria.  In the summer he comes to the Shuswap where he milks cows on his family farm.  He’s been involved in community theatre since he was ten, and particularly enjoyed playing Huckleberry Finn in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (Gallery 7) and Judah in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.  Forrest is multi-talented and loves dancing and doing cartwheels. He has participated in the Calendario Wheel visual art project.  Forrest is very excited about delving into the world of puppetry as it is entirely new to him.


Aidan Sparks (20) is a multi-talented young man, presently studying folklore at Memorial University in St.John’s Newfoundland, where he has spent his spare time creating puppets.  Last year he was in Vancouver learning/teaching with CircusWest, where he began while attending the Langley Fine Arts School.  He has been onstage and backstage for several plays at Shuswap Secondary School and Shuswap Players, and has studied dance as well.
Aidan has been part of Runaway Moon’s stilt chorus as a child, and embodied a Red-tailed Hawk in the Bird Stilt Chorus more recently. He was a sparrow in Episode of Sparrows.
Last summer Aidan and two friends unearthed a giant puppet of Runaway Moon’s, and took it to the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival.  Aidan is keen to do more spectacle puppetry.
