Cast Spotlight: Heather Motut

Hear singer Heather Motut at ‘Twas the Cab Before Christmas, Friday Dec. 1, at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, Toronto.

You may remember Heather from her role as Teresa in our 2015 production of Kill Sister, Kill! A Musical.

Bio: Heather is a singer, actress, and improviser. Originally from Vancouver B.C, Heather studied at an interdisciplinary performing arts school in Victoria, and has been living and performing in Toronto for 6 years in various productions both on stage and screen. An eager collaborator, Heather enjoys working in ensemble productions, and on the original projects of her fellow musicians.

What made you want to be involved in the cabaret?

I’m big into Christmas and all it represents. (I mean love and joy and generosity, not any of that religious or commercial crap, but please buy a ticket to the show, buy so many tickets!) And it’s always a pleasure to work with Tom.

What’s your favourite part of the holiday season?

Being with my friends and family and eating too much. Also, openly sobbing through the last 15 minutes of It’s a Wonderful Life.

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

Fairytale of NewYork

Why should everyone come see the show? Because its gonna get you into the Holiday Spirit! Not the stressful and frantic one, but the good one that feels like magic and hope for humanity!

Bygone Theatre was founded as a collective in October of 2012, and became an incorporated not-for-profit company in October of 2015. Our mandate is to produce theatre written or set in the early 20th century, focusing on historical aspects in design and incorporating a classic cinema aesthetic. ​ In 2019 Bygone Theatre was nominated for 14 Broadway World Toronto Awards, including Best Community Theatre and Best Play (Equity). We took home a total of 5 awards, 4 of which were for The Rear Window, including Best Direction of a Play (Equity); Best Original Lighting Design; Best Leading Actor (Play, Equity); and Best Featured Actress (Play, Equity). We took a hiatus our 2020/21 season because of the COVID19 pandemic, and used that time to develop our charitable initiatives. In August of 2021 we were nominated for the Toronto Star Readers' Choice Award for Best Live Theatre. Part of our mission involves inclusion and accessibility, and we strive to allow artists of all backgrounds and levels of experience the chance to have hands-on experience in whatever capacity they are most interested in; this has included youth outreach programs for high school students interested in production design, and acting opportunities for those who have never performed onstage.
