Annastasia Unger and Tim Howe of Abbotsford featured at Granville Island

Annastasia Unger and Tim Howe of Abbotsford are among the casts of two upcoming productions at Waterfront Theatre on Granville Island in Vancouver.

Two Abbotsford residents are among the actors featured in two upcoming productions  at Granville Island’s Waterfront Theatre.

Annastasia Unger plays Martha Dunnstock in Heathers: The Musical, while Tim Howe plays Joshua in Green Day’s American Idiot.

Heathers runs from Aug. 2 to 26, while American Idiot is on from Aug. 3 to 27 at the Waterfront Theatre, 1412 Cartwright St.

Unger is a former student of Abbotsford School of the Integrated Arts who runs Monumental Theatre, which she created in August 2014 to bring Vancouver-quality theatre to the Fraser Valley.

Her casts have ranged in age from 14 to 50 years and have come from Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission, Langley and Surrey.

Unger has performed and toured throughout North America, including being a featured performer at Disneyland and the half-time show for the Harlem Globetrotters.

Howe is a graduate of University of the Fraser Valley’s theatre department.

He has acted in several previous Fraser Valley productions, including Bard in the Valley’s production of The Comedy of Errors; University of the Fraser Valley’s presentation of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum; and Secondary Characters’ productions of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown and Into the Woods.
