Introducing Guest Artist Laura Gillespie

Laura Gillespie from Camrose plays The Centaur
in The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe.
Rosebud School of the Arts graduate, Laura Gillespie, is back on the Opera House Stage and we couldn't be happier to have her here! You may remember Laura from such Rosebud Theatre Shows as Our Town, Anne of Green Gables or The Gifts of the Magi. She is currently playing the ferocious, battle-ready and trumpeting centaur in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

What do you do outside of Rosebud?
I act (surprise!).  For the past year I’ve been doing a mix of film and theatre. 

What have been some favourite shows you've been a part of?

Bitches & Money with NLT (Edmonton) and Zombie #1 (a Storyhive short, also out of Edmonton).

If you got to go to Narnia, what would you most look forward to doing?

I’d sail to the Islands!

What has been a highlight of being in Rosebud?

I have loved getting to know the cast - a lovely bunch of people have gathered together to tell this story.  I’ve also enjoyed getting to play my trumpet again.  

What are some of your non-theatre related interests?

I love snowboarding and water-skiing.  And reading.  Especially reading.


  1. Congratulations on all your success, Laura!! I wouldn't have expected anything less! You are a natural! I am very proud of you! I'd love to see you in action someday! Keep up the great work--it's fun to see what you are up to next!!
