Linda McRae has had many roles as an actor, singer, director, writer, coach and teacher for numerous projects and theatre groups and schools throughout the Fraser Valley for over 25 years. Her most treasured role was as Golde in Fiddler on the Roof. However, her most treasured task is watching children and teens thrive and blossom in the safe environment she provides for them to explore their craft of acting, singing and improvisation. Linda’s philosophy is encased within this Daniel Day Lewis quote: “The thing about performance, even if it is only an illusion, is that it is a celebration of the fact that we do contain within ourselves infinite possibilities.” Linda hopes to encourage each student of theatre she works with to find their infinite possibilities.
