Cast Spotlight: Kenton Blythe

Kenton Blythe is playing trouble-maker Dennis in our upcoming production of Loot. You may remember Kenton from one of our Retro Radio Hours, or from his role as Max Halliday in Dial M For Murder, back in 2013.

Renting out a professional theatre and building flats for Dial M For Murder were major costs.

What made you want to be a part of Loot?

I loved the script when I read it and I always get cast as murders and racists, so a farce is a lovely change of pace.

How do you feel about your character? Do you relate to them at all? Share any of the same traits?
Dennis is fun loving, scatter brained, and perpetually horny. Yes.
What’s been your favourite part of the rehearsal process so far?
Figuring out how to make everything I say sexual in some way. Don’t know if they’ll all make opening night…
What’s your favourite thing to have come out of the 1960s?
The Beatles, and my Aunties (All of them.)
Are you working on any other projects at the moment/ What might we have seen you in recently?
Check out my youtube channel and facebook page for highlights from the show I wrote and performed at the 120 Diner in November 2017. Conor Fitzgerald (One of the producers of this show) and I made a movie that premiered at the Canadian Film Festival in 2016 called Looking For Today which is also on Youtube. Finally you should check out the Sandman fan film I was in called Sandman: 24 Hour Diner.
Why should people come out and see the show?
We have all the comedy of a corpse without the smell.
